Trout- 2 or 3 in tubes, rainbow rapalas, wollys, midge nymphs
Smallies- 4 in senko watermelon, crawdad tube or bomber
crankbait, spook or storm chug bug, rogues in spring.
Larrys- Skirted jig w/ Yamo twin tail grub trailer (cinnamon)
Green pumpkin tube, timber tiger crank, white spinner bait,
Skitter walk.
Walleye- Rogues, Perch rapala, jig head w/nightcrawler.
Pike -all of the above.
Don't normally fish for the other species unless I'm fishing with Kids and using bait. Then it's worms or Nitro bait.

I'm probably the least experienced of anyone on the forum but here's what it is so far.
Rainbows: tubes
Cutbows: tubes
Brookies: tubes
Brownies: tubes
Walleyes: tubes
LM bass: tubes
SM bass: tubes
Perch: tubes
Crappie: tubes
Bluegill: tubes
Many of the above catches could be best described as significantly undersized.

Another tube brother !
I've caught walleye and pike on them too.
A sure fire way to scare up fish in heavy pressured or finicky conditions: A two inch tube on a 1/16 or 1/32 jig head in green pumpkin, craw, or smoke.
4 lb test mono on an ultralight setup.
That will find the fish then you can go to heavier tackle
if they will cooperate. If not, rack up the numbers on the little stuff. Big fish will bite them too.
I've used this technique to locate finicky bass in tournaments and it's pretty succesful.
