If I was limited to one lure, I would reach for a white single blade spinnerbait, HANDS DOWN! I've caught everything from bluegill and rock bass, BIG largemouth and smallmouth, to northern, and tiger musky!

If I could have only one lure to fish I'd take a Blakemore Road Runner.

Hello. I'm new here. Great site. Thank you having me.

I mostly fish for peacock bass in the tropics. By far the best lure I've had is the little Torpedo with a propeller on the back. White body, red head popper. A killer.

On the ocean, fishing for dolphin and sail fish, Island Lure, white body, red head.

A white and red lure ought to be a required piece of gear in any survival pack.

If it's fly fishing - fishing wet with a nymph and trailer.

trolling from a boat - Gold panther martin.

fishing from shore - crappie rig with crawlers and corn

Small (about an 1 3/4") white twister, on a flouresant orange 1/4 jighead from crappies- pike, and sunfish- channel cats.

This, but they don't make them anymore. Next is a purple and white tube jig. miles


Look out for number 1, don't step in number 2.
Bravo

It was my second time through this thread when it dawned on me that ice fishing for trout our secret weapon years ago was a "Dickey Pearl". We'd tip it with a few maggots and man did we catch fish with it. But alas, as all things go away so did the Dickey Pearl. Gone forever except for the couple dozen put away in a safe spot! wink

I would have to say any jig or red devil spoon has accounted for many fish

I would have to pick trolling with worm harnesses.
I tie my own when the urge hits, and have over 300 tied up (great time killer when you can't get out to fish).
Here's some I tied today...

[Linked Image]

We usually use them for walleye (9.75, 9.5 and 4 pounds)
[Linked Image]

But we get a lot of lakers (28#)..

[Linked Image]

Smallmouths (+/- 5#)..

and have caught a lot of large perch 12"+ when trolling for walleyes.


Old Fishermen never die, we just get reel tired.

I hate trebles, but once you replace it with a good single hook, a krocodile will take both fresh and saltwater fish with aplomb.

My best is the Rapala Husky 13. Discontinued and a collector, but I have many.

In the South the plastic worm is king for bass. I have caught many large trophy bass on a Thinfin & the Rattletrap is a great general purpose lure. Also, caught lots of pickerel on Mepps spinners.

The truth has been spoken. (I would also add, from personal experience) that a much higher hooking percentage will ensue if you remove the protective plastic tubing that sometimes is run up over the point and barb.)
