Early in the morning I use a spinnerbait and when the bass go deep later in the morning I use a plastic worm or a rattletrap lure. I use a light colored lure on a bright day and a dark colored lure on a dark cloudy day or at night.

My 9-year-old daughter kept losing live nightcrawlers near submerged trees as they sank. She asked me to attach a large treble hook, so she had more than one point holding the worm, and so it lay straight across two hooks. On her first cast, she snagged a four-pound bass, and on the second cast a five-and-a-half-pounder. [87 degrees, clear sky, Mid-July. 68-degree murky water, fishing from a dock].

In the mid-west a good old spinner bait never fails. I usually use green/yellow or blue/white/yellow. Also after sundown a dark buzz bait or black popper makes for some great action in shallow water.

My go to is Texas rigged plastic worm, sometimes weightless, sometimes not, depending on the situation. colors: any of the variations of blue, purple, pumpkin, watermelon, black. Another favorite is the Pop-R. Under the right conditions zara spooks can be a ton of fun (by ton of fun I mean good size fish coming all the way out of the water on the strike) , but if you are fishing them for long they can get a bit tiring.

Big ol' shiner minners!!
Especially during the spawn, I rig my fly rod with nothing but a 2/0 gold perch hook, no weight. Hook one of them big minners just behind the dorsal fin, being careful not to sever the spine.
Flip him into shallow water and he comes to the surface and dances. Sit back and wait for the ride!!! LOL!!
Love it!!

My favorites are Zara Spooks and buzzbaits and Scumrats for on top.

I know the question asked for the number one but I think there are too many variables to have just one. It all depends on what's going on. I'll always start with top water, it's too much fun.

I have been fishing bass tournaments since I was 10 years old and I rely mainly on soft plastics, but vary in the presentation and methods I use. If I am fishing a tournament, my first goal is to reach my limit in my live well, so I will throw a Zoom Fluke Worm (Watermelon Seed) on a 3/0 wide gap hook. After I have my limit, then it is time to hunt for big momma. What do I do then? Well, like I said, soft plastics for me. Down here in Florida on the lakes and rivers that I fish, there are a lot of floating mats comprised of mixed vegetation. I use Gambler crawfish plastics. Red and black or blue and black. And I flip in the heavy vegetation with a 4/0 Gamakatsu and depending on the thickness of the vegetation, up to a 1/2 oz bullet weight (always set your weight so that it will not slide on your line while flipping. I use a toothpick to do this by setting my weight where I want it and inserting a toothpick in the top and breaking the excess off.) This is a very reliable tactic for fishing in hot weather, but it has been found effective year round for me. We don't have a lot of deep water lakes or rivers around here, so I don't use many crankbaits. Topwater fishing is great when homeowners on the water don't complain about the hydrilla washing up onto their little private beaches. If I am topwater fishing, I stick to Bagley's Bang-o-lure (gold) or a Smithwick Devil's Horse (yellow and black). You can catch a fish on just about anything, but the key is presentation, patience, and confidence in yourself and the lure/method that you are using.

Good luck fishing to everyone!

Up until this past season I would have said a Hula Popper top water, but my go to bait this season was a white road runner with a white triple ripple from bass pro. I destroyed everything from bass and crappie to pike and walleye on that rig!

when it comes to bass fishing I have the best luck using old fashioned night crawler with a tad bit of chewing tobacco spit on them. works like a charm I have landed many big bass using this bait I can pull in anywhere between 15-20 nice sized bass in a 4 hour period ranging 3lbs to 8lbs maybe it is the spot I fish but the bait is hot.
