    If you had 1 fishing lure for life, what would it be?

    Would it count to say, "a 3/8 oz jighead, that I could change plastics on?"

        I don't have a lure that I am that crazy about. I would take a gary yamamoto rainbow trout 4" rubberworm with a gamakatsu hook.

              2 inch floating rapala in sliver/black. I have caught bluegill, crappie, perch, largemouth, and smallmouth on that size.

              Remember: Big hooks catch big fish, little hooks catch all the fish!

                Assuming we can replace or repair:
                My old fallback will probably a 2" white curly tailed grub on a jig head or just hook and shot. I'll take either.

                If we're stuck with literally one that needs to last for the rest of our lives, Teacher's rapala is a tough one to beat. I think the grub is more versatile though.

                  I think it would be interesting to hear where each of you typically fish (where do you reside?) as I think your location could have a major influence on your choice...

                        The red and white Daredevil was the first to pop into my head, but so many others that were named, it's not possible to imagine having to live with only one.

                          Mine would be a Rapala ShadRap. This catches most fresh water fish across the U.S. and Canada. I've had pretty good luck casting and trolling them in salt water too. I use other lures but if I had to have just one for survival, that would be it. My second would be a white buck tailed jig. In some areas, I've had better luck with black. These work well on most fresh water fish but are killer across the entire ocean as well. If I sailed from Florida to England, that is what I'd drag behind my boat all the way. I will also note that I'm a big fan of the red and white genuine DareDevil for northern pike too but alas, they only work exceptionally well for pike.

                            I have caught quite a few bass with the old Helin flatfish. I would want to have it with a wide assortment of colors.

                                Lot's of folks carry the 9mm. In fact, several federal agencies have dropped the .40 S&W for the 9mm.
