      3" inch curly tailed grubs on a lead head in colors matching bait fish. Cast them up and across and reel them in at different speeds until you find the speed the bass like. You'll knock em dead!

        Curly tailed grubs work very good and sometimes earth worms will work too.

          Match your lure to the main forage bait in the creek. Curly tails are a proven winner, but I also like swimbaits and crankbaits.

              Curlytails or try a natural colored rattle trap (1/4 or 1/8 oz) and good luck.

                      I really like to scale down and use a rooster tail or roadrunner style bait, a tiny trap works great as well. Also a 4" worm also seems to do well in creeks and streams.

                        I've had ok luck with curlytails but i have two go-to lure's ahead of them. Both are soft plastics. The first is a 2 or 3 inch green pumpkin seed crawfish hooked from the tail. It makes it very realistic. The second is 2 or 3 inch green pumpkin seed hellgrimite. You can tinker with the colors some but I recommend dark greens, browns and blacks. They tend to be a more natural presentation.

                          In the rivers and creeks where I am at, a Mepps spinner works well
