    NJ. I catch bass up the wazoo with those things (GY rainbow trout). Being that this is hypothetical that is my choice. I am trying more and more lures, etc. as I don't like how those plastics end up in the lakes and fish stomachs. If I want bass for dinner, it is what I am using until I find something else that is as consistent. I fish mostly lakes, some streams and rivers, and bass are what I prefer to clean quickly and have a meal without having to clean 30 panfish. As long as I have the hook I can always put on live bait and catch panfish if it were a survival scenario.

      Grew up fishing Lake Erie and the tributaries (mostly eighteen mile creek south of Buffalo). I spent most every summer in Maine fishing the coastal waters Then I moved to Florida and spent most of my time fishing the many canals and small lakes as well as the gulf coast. I now live in TN and fish mostly small ponds and "lakes" around Memphis. I use the term lake lightly because compared to what I grew up with fishing on Erie all that TN has is oversized ponds.

      I took my trusty rapala with me everywhere. If I were to recount all the species I have hooked on a 2 inch rapala it would be:
      Smallmouth bass, Largemouth bass, several species of sunfish, Bluegill, Crappie, Rock Bass, White Bass, Striped bass (ocean dwelling not landlocked), King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Atlantic Mackerel.

      I absolutely love using a rapala, and it is the first thing I tie on whenever I am fishing water I don't know. Fresh or salt water it doesn't matter.

        If only had one, it'd be a large package of black plastic worms. They are the go-to bait for Florida largemouth bass, and as I was using an old one that was only about half there, I found out it would catch bream as well. I've even caught salt water fish on it before.

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

            I think I have caught the most fish on a Kastmaster.

              SE Pa, and most of my fishing lately gets done on the Perkiomen Creek just below the Green Lane reservoir as my house is 70 yards off the bank.
              Lifetime most of my fishing has been the local creeks and lakes from here to the Poconos with a sprinkling of the Delaware River.
              Other than one offshore trip.. now that I think about it, I've never made a cast in another state that I can think of. Not once. Trout fishing has taken me most of the breadth of PA.

              My pick of a 3" plus or minus white grub reflects the fact that it seems to be a great sounding lure. No matter what environment in those limits, moving or still, cold or warm, fish will go for that lure. I'd lean smaller on a trout stream, but I was going for all around utility.

                Depends: one lure and that's it? or one style from a specific brand?
                I would go with a live target bluegill crankbait that ran 8' for the first question, and for the next, I would go with a 1/2 oz. jig from tournament series.

                  Your mention of the .380/9mm is what drew my attention.
                  I meant no offense to you or anyone else.
