Goto Baits
« on: August 07, 2017, 04:39:29 PM »

What's y'all goto Baits? I know, I know,  depends on where y'all at and time if year.. But everyone knows there's that one bait that you've ran down to the store to buy over and over..  It's the first one you end up throwing because it's The One..  I'm sure junebug and watermelon reds gonna show up soon..  But what kind, senkos,  yum dingers, trickworms   brush hogs,  crabkbaits or spinnerbaits... What's y'all go to baits here in Louisiana?

If all else fails I can catch a fish on a black speed craw.

For the past 35 years a Grape Mann's Jelly Worm or a Black/Yellow H&H Spinnerbait was the go to lures for me.

Recently its been nothing but Toads Stanley Ribbit original, Stanley Top Toad, Stanley Bull Ribbit, and Zoom Horny toad. Every color has worked but the Chartreuse belly ones like Catalpa have seemed to pulled ahead as a fish favorite lately.

Just ordered one from Monster, Navy Seal color. What color do you typically use? Also ordered a couple Lunkerhunt Combat Frogs.

When all else fails!  It's probably my favorite.  WM Red seems to work great around here.

How do y'all fish weightless fluke? Like a spook or like a wackyrig worm? I'm not gonna lie,  I've got about 10 bags of flukes I've maybe thrown twice..  Apparently this is the secret weapon  I've been missing.. Lol

There isn't really a wrong way to fish it.  I generally let it drop for a few seconds, raise it a little and let it drop again.  It pretty much has it's own action when falling, darting to the side. 
Sometimes they will hit it on a very slow, steady retrieve.

Fish it where you would normally throw a worm I guess..  Along banks brush piles..  Or what about balls of shad? Or on points?

A green pumpkin Chatterbait with a Rage Craw trailer seems to my "lucky" bait.

All the above!  I love to toss it against a cypress tree and let it sink.  If there is a fish there they often hit it before it reaches the bottom.  In that case it's sort of like fishing a jig, but it falls very slowly.

Make sure when you t rig the fluke that the hook comes out of the bottom nice and straight and texpose the hook on the top. I like to throw it near weeds, stick-ups, and grass lines; cast it, let it sink on a semi slack line for about 10-15 seconds, many times they will hit it on the fall, so watch the line for movement. If no hits twitch it a few times pause for a five count and repeat. Again they like to hit it when it falls after the twitch.
Vary your retrieves; sometimes they like it fast without long pauses, the bait is working higher in the water column and spurs a reaction strike. I also throw it right in the middle of dollar pads and lightly matted grass, just keep the rod tip high and skitter it across the top, letting it fall into holes. I caught one last night that way, busted right through the pads.
You can also use it in open water when the bass are crashing bait, it works really well. Let the lure fall through the bait ball, usually the larger bass are underneath waiting for the dying ones.

So hook tip is out too of fluke..  I misread the Post and was fishing today,  ran it with tip on bottom a few times and said this ain't right... Lol...  Got it with tip out top and still didn't get a bite..  Bit water in red river was high with freshwater so I didn't get any bites..  Except for the brim that ate my bait and ran... Lol
