Lure selection is likewise simple, but you need to cover the bases: swimming plugs, popping plugs, heavy metal, and jigs. There are lots of good swimmers, but the 1-ounce Bomber Long A and A-Salt are perhaps the most widely used. Poppers are usually daytime surface plugs. Again, there are lots of options, but a 2-ounce, chrome-finish Creek Chub Striper Strike is basic. Heavy metal means dense, aerodynamic spoons that give the longest possible casting distance, and my personal favorite is a 2-ounce Acme Kastmaster. You'll also need a few jigs (deer-hair-dressed and commonly called bucktails), which allow fishing at the greatest range of depths. A strip of white or red pork rind is traditionally added to bucktails for extra action, but white twister-tail soft-plastic grubs in 3- and 4-inch sizes do the same thing more easily.
