If you're anything like me, you've tried a ton of different lures meant for snagging a big bass, and you probably have your favorites. If, however, you are looking to add new bass fishing tackle to your current arsenal, or just getting started with bass fishing, read on to discover my top 3 picks for the best bass lures around!
When a bass wants dinner, he looks for a baitfish...and spinnerbaits look a whole lot like dinner to a bass! These lures tend to snag bigger bass, and are great for covering a wide area of water quickly. They work year-round, even in winter, so make a perfect go-to lure.
With a spinnerbait, you'll rarely lose a fish because the big hook holds them tight.
These look like crawfish (another bass favorite) or baitfish, and come in an overwhelming variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They work well in almost all waters, are the most realistic looking lures around, and are simple to cast.
If you haven't tried them before, your best bet is to grab the same crankbait in several different sizes and colors and see what the bass in your area like. You can always add more...and you'll definitely want to once you start reeling in bass with them!
3. Jig and Pig
This type of bait has stood the test of time, and for good reason. To a bass, it looks like a crawfish...and the bigger bass really tend to go for it. If you don't know, a jig and pig is a lead-headed jig with a rubber skirt and plastic or pork as the frog trailer.
A jig and pig is light enough to fish across rocks and in brush without getting too hung up, and is also good for flipping around heavy cover. Drag, slide and hop it along, just like a crawling crayfish, and you'll attract quality bass.
