    What are your favorite artificial lures, and what fish do you fish for?

    My favorite artificials are in-line spinners, mainly rooster tails, as they're not as expensive as Blue Fox's stuff, and they're just as effective. Next up would be small curl-tailed jigs fished with or without a spinner-bait arm.

    I've got a bunch of plastic worms, but haven't caught a fish on a plastic worm in a couple years. Kinda lost faith in them. I've also got a handful of small crankbaits, half of which have caught fish (others just don't get fished oft enough)

    I use the smallest floating rapalas, a sinking rapala, and a small Rebel crawfish crankbait, a larger Luhr Jensen crawfish bait (new, not fished much. None caught yet) a joined rapala (which has caught some nice smallies) and the smallest Flatfish I could find. None of those has caught near as many fish as my Rooster Tails. Tossing them with long ultra-light rods and 4lb line works wonders for smallmouth bass, trout, largemouth bass, and even crappie & yellow perch.

    For GP use in my neck of the woods a silver Mepps is best. Pick a size appropriate to the gamefish you're after.

    Ok guys yesterday I got good bites ( 2 bass) off of a purple worm with a pink tail. Also I got plenty of the Blue Fox lures found them at Wal Mart for like 10 bucks about 9 of them or so. Those are good for pan fishing. I found a real trout getter though "KastMaster" Its basically a spoon retrieve it slow and ever few feet lift the rod tip up a few inches and let it drop. Caught a 2lb trout off of that.

    rooster tails--awesome on alot of different kinds of fish.
    buzz baits--seem to catch big fish on these!!
    spinner baits.


    Also--about a year ago--buddy and i--from the bank,at a place called" the dead sea" by most anglers---from 1pm to dark--88 fish--white bass--about a pound and a half each--some alot bigger--casting a red jig head with a white curly tail.YEAH!!!!
