    Lookin to see what everyone's favorite bass lure around the country. Mine is a black buzzbait in the summer just before dark in calm water. My heart starts pumpin alittle faster whenever I pick it up and start throwin it. The bass explode on it and sometimes I have to not watch the bait because I set the hook so fast that I sometimes pull it away from them.

    My favorite to use is a Zara Spook 3 1/2 in.....:D nothing like a topwater hit!

    My most productive...Texas rigged 7-1/2 in. power worm in red shad or tequilla sunrise.;)

    Tubes, tubes, and did I forget to mention tubes. I absolutely love em. Skip'em under docks. jig in deep water. work a drop off flip into heavy cover. I can fish all day long with one rod and a bag of tubes if I have to.

    Being a Lab man, I like to walk the dog as much as the next guy. But I love to throw a Pop-R next to an old log as the sun's coming up and I'm sip'n a hot cup of coffee. Give it a littel twitch and see who comes a call'n.

    On Fork, Ray Roberts and Sam Rayburn, I flip a Texas rigged brush hog in ruby, watermelon, and "I can't tell you".:p

    It would have to be a Zoom floating worm rigged texas style . I prefer to throw plastic over hardbaits anyways . But any kinda topwater plug like a bang o lure or a pop R are great also .

    I haven't fished for Bass in years but when I lived in Mississippi my favorite lure for them was a Jitterbug. Nothing like throwing one of those things at night and hearing the splash when the fish hits.

    6 - 8" Worm Texas rigged. If the cover dictates, I will peg it and get out the needle for a little air. A little in the middle and near the tail so it will sit nose down and just barely sink...Dem big ol' toads just hate that and will crush it!

    If I am going for numbers or covering alot of water, light colored spinner baits are the choice, especially during midday.

    When the gets lower, Wood Walkers, Dalton Specials and Zaragossas are deadly. 3 1/2, if you like Zara Spooks, you would love the orginall Zaragossas. They can literally walk circles around a spook with a good fast action rod and a little practice.;)
