This is a great way to figure out what all the fish are seeing and then try something different!

I'm a newly converted square bill fisherman. I've caught a lot of fish on them the last few years while whoever was with me caught less fish on plastics. That being said, I love the feel of a tap on a Texas rigged worm

Best bass I've ever caught lake fishing was on that chug bug pattern on Amistad at dusk after the lake had come up. He just destroyed that lure

Caught biggest bass on a Texas - rigged motor oil worm, but most exciting strikes come on top - waters like a devil's horse or chugger.

For some of the most vicious top water strikes ever try a snake. Bass , like most people, obviously don't care for them.

I don't guess I have a favorite. It just depends on where I am. I will say that a buzz bait is a heck of a lot of fun. I also love to concentration and challenge involved with pitching and flipping jigs in heavy cover and around docks. You can catch some big ones that way, but it's tough, because there's quite a bit that can go wrong. (Hangups, and such) plus, it can get pretty pricey when you have to cut your line. Of course, there's probably ALOT of operator error involved for me too. Accuracy is also key when doing this.

Rattle traps for my biggets bass but I always find myself falling back on a red shad lizard when it seems nothing else will get it done. Maybe/maybe not but I've always believed that your confidence in the bait can/does make a difference. Most people are gonna fish harder with something they believe is gonna catch fish!

Senko. I literally used about 20 bags last spring/summer of the Big Bite bullfrong senko copy. Caught my biggest fish to date and more porkers than ever.

I also like flukes.
Most of my fishing has been in the Llano river. Either up river from Scott's Slab on private property or both above and below the dam at Robinson Park.
