    If in Florida, I'm going for a worm or a frog.

    I'd start with a spinnerbait w/ a chartreuse body. You can cover a lot of water in a short amount of time. Second choice would be a rebel crankbait. Choose a lure you cover a lot of water quickly but that you feel confident in.

    I put on different variations of rapalas until I find a pattern that works.

    What you do is look at your suroundings. Look under rocks, in the water, and in the air. find creatures that you have a lure for. I garuntee you your surroundings will catch you a bass

    Spinner bait, but what you choose is a matter of confidence. Everyone has that one lure that they've "mastered" so they're confident in it. I like spinner baits because they tend to be weedless and snag free. After I've used one to read the structure I'll switch to what the next best producer might be.
    Maybe some kind of "minnow" like a rapala count down or swim bait of appropriate size and color.
