A black Texas rig worm.
If you're fishing for bass, try a chartreuse spinnerbait with a silver blade.
so is the water water clear or is murky?
A Daredevil spinnie with a pork rind strip.
Murky/dark water - something gold or dark that makes noise and/or displaced a lot of water.
Clear water - something that looks very natural or is light/bright depending on the fish species and/or their mood.
In between - depends on the species and their mood, but usually something with a mix of the first two.
You can use any lure for any color of water, but color is where it makes the difference. For hardbaits, use natural in clear water, and chartreuse/bright colors in murky water. For soft baits, use natural/green colors in clear water and dark colors in murky water.
Also, lures that give off a lot of vibration can help in murky water.
For clear waters use stuff thats more translucent, for murky or muddy waters, use more solid colors. i learned this off a fishing show i watch and it does work. ive doubled what i was catching before.
