So what does everyone use? Over the last three years I have kind of gotten stuck in my ways
But it works for me. I am always interested to see what kinds of soft plastics everyone is using?
I fish mostly from shore from now till early summer and this is what I mostly use during the daylight. Then switch to Jerkbaits once it is dark. I pretty much snap jig everything even in cold water! I like to snap spoons especially if the water is cold. A 1/4 oz Kroc is perfect for that task. I use mostly 4 and 5 inch Power minnows and Power Jerk shads on 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz Darter heads. Haven't used the Gulp baits much. What do you guys think of them? I would guess they would be a better choice if you were fishing slow.
Both Smallmouth and big Trout like those baits also!
I have experimented some with Swimbaits also, but have had very little success with them on Walleye's
But last fall Troy Colburn was fishing right next to me and was doing well with some kind of swimbait? Of course those fish were on a spree that night and crushing everything we threw. I have thrown the 5" Swim Shads they use all the time on InFisherman alot with almost no result
Look forward to seeing what everyone else has been experimenting with lately!
