      I like a craw trailer on a jig. My favorite color is the one they are biting on. An array of colors in your tackle box is always good

        I like Salamanders and frogs. Usually black or green. Rhino makes a plastic with a harder nose that both casts better and also holds the hook longer without tearing out during many casts.

            Anything by ZOOM bait company! They're made near where I live, so I like supporting them, and they also make great plastics lures! One of my favorite colors is Pumpkin Seed!

              I like frogs, Texas rigged worms, a few swim baits that are made to look like sunfish and shad, and beetle spins with the right grub. Light in murky water, dark in clear water.

                I have used soft plastics since the sixties and even went so far as to set up and make my own. Yet in recent years, I have switched to natural pork rind lures. You can get almost any shape of creature made out of natural pork rind and they work as well or better than soft plastic. Soft plastics are a petrochemial product which is non renewable where as pork is a renewable resource.

                  A Texas rigged red watermelon/chart. trick worm by Zoom is my go to worm. Chigger Craws also work pretty well in any color depending on the water clarity.
