In my opinion soft jerkbaits are probably one of the most productive plastics for me. I've never really had the patience or will to learn fishing tubes. Soft jerkbaits such as zoom flukes or bass assassins are great and can be fished pretty versatile. You can fish them weedless, on a jig head, a weighted hook, various depths, etc etc. And you have so much control over their movement and they can look pretty tasty! :D A flick of the wrist can give them alot of life. They're very effective fished at different speeds too. Again, my preference because of their versatility. :thumbsup:

You can get Alluringbaits.com tubes inexpensively and lots of them. They're great for bedding smallies, river smallies, and smallies in grass. Did I mention smallies?

Largemouth eat em too but I'll usually T-rig them and don't use them as often. If I'm fishing a jig lake and want a different presentation go with the tube on a T-rig. It slides through cover and has a bit of a different random action. Hop it and pop it.

When drop-shotting I usually use an 1/8oz weight, if it's deeper water I'll use something a little bit heavier to help get the bait down a bit quicker..but mostly 1/8oz works for me. As far as baits, I like the yamamoto shad shape worm, colors vary depending on clarity, but you can't go wrong with watermelon for most situations. I also use Roboworm 4.5" straight tail worms. They make a ton of different colors and I've had success with most of them. I have found a few other baits I'm going to give a try this year and see what happens.

Did someone mention TUBES??
Now you are talking my language. What type of tubes were you looking for? Meaning , finesse tubes or flipping tubes. There are many brands out there but my main goto finesse 3" tubes are Berkley and WAVE Worms. Check out Alluring baits like Adam mentioned and also a great finesse tube to start off with that is inexpensive are Gizzets. Dicks has bulk packs for like $5. The two best colors are their green pumpkin and the smoked Red Flake. The smoked Red produces very well in the early Spring when the Crayfish are starting to change colors. Green pumpkin is just a great color anytime of year due to how well it matches it's environment.

If you have questions that are in depth, shoot me an email.
