    I use ultralight spinning tackle for trout, crappie, bluegill, etc., and I seem to have a good run of success with Mepps Minnows and copper Z-rays.

            Depends on the fish, depends on the day. I seem to get more strikes on Rattle Traps and spinner baits than anything else, but sometimes it is frogs.

                  For all around one lure fishing from any wet puddle to any ocean in the world for just about anything but marlin and great white sharks, I'd have to say a Rapala Shadrap in natural silver shad color. It catches them about as well or better than anything else. Next to that, I have to say a bucktail jig, but I might have to vary the color from black to white depending on the species of fish I was targeting.

                        A black or olive Wooly bugger will catch a whole lot of different fish.

                          Hi...


                          For pickerel and northern pike, I have found the Rapala (various types - dark colored) to be a great lure.

                          Small stream trout - worms and night crawlers, sometimes a small spinner. Larger streams/small rivers - other than flies, live bait (shiners, etc.) and underwater lures that imitate fish.

                          Bass...'noisy' top water lures, plastic worms.

                              Senko style bait rigged wacky style. Just let it sink slowly to the bottom, then shake it, and let it fall. Works all the time.
