Your most versatile bank fishing bait?
« on: December 09, 2018, 06:15:43 PM »

What bait or baits can you just stick in your pocket, walk the banks and put a hurting on the bass with? For me I have 2. The spinnerbait and Uvibe speed worm. Deadly when the situation calls for it. Enjoy!!

I agree with the spinnerbait.  I am not familiar with the Uvibe speed worm, but I would go with a Texas rig Airtail worm.  I also like crank bait or lipless cranks like a Rat L Trap.  Basically something that will find the fish and then see what they are biting on.

I had to look up what an airtail worm was, and the difference between the air tail and a Uvibe is that the uvibe is sickle tail worm  that puts out a real tantalizing buzz.

They must of gotten bought out by Grande Bass.  I love the fact that the tail floats and are great t-rigged or even Carolina rigged.

For all year on green bass a spinnerbait or T-rig worm.

Brown bass has to be a hula grub or single tail grub.

But seasons change everything. Knowing what they are eating and the cover will change what you are doing or should.
Just because you know that a lure will get a few bites doesn't mean that you should throw it. Versatility will always get more fish in the boat. That's why I will never make the big time. lo
I know what to do but don't always do it. ~b~

If I am just after them to catch numbers, not solely looking for the overweight granny. ;)

1. A 7" Culprit T-rig worm probably in Red Shad or Tequila Sunrise color.
or
2. Old school 3/8oz Arkie style jig with a Black, Black/Blue, or Crawdad Brown skirt. Probably use some sort of craw trailer in similarly fashioned color on it.

Red shad is one of my favorite colors when I'm fishing 10" t-rigs. Tequila sunrise was one of my old favorite colors.

I normally throw a 10" as well but as I said if I am purely hunting numbers ill go 7". Those two colors are legendary around here they work if the fisherman can get them in the water and a fish is anywhere near.  ;D

A good old 4" Senko. Throw a few different hook styles and a few split shot weights in your bag and you have multiple presentations available, from weightless, weedless, weighted and wacky.

I'd go with a 3/8 oz swim jig, for me its an incredibly versatile bait especially if you have a few different types of trailers to work with. A close second would be a zoom u-tail in junebug.

 :surrender: :surrender: ... so I posted the question and I never explained why I chose my two choices of baits when bank fishing...  doh!!

Spinnerbait: I can cover the entire water column, cover lots of water in short period of time and its definitely a big fish catcher, especially if you like throwing big spinnerbaits like me.

Uvibe: again, can cover the entire water column, cover a lot of water in short amount of time and they can be fished various ways:  T-rig, used as a trailer on swim jigs, jigs, or spoons, or fished like a buzz bait. These baits drive bass crazy when the bass are on the hunt!!  lo

For me it would have to be a lipless crank bait and some type of plastic.

I'm going to go with a Senko assuming I can use it weighted and weightless.
