Default Favorite Artificials For Reds

With so many options on the market now I always wonder if there is something better out there that will really make a difference.. maybe the trusty old gold spoon is really the best. Maybe its a new color Gulp!, an exciting top water rapala or mirrolure... post your votes below!

Mine is trust old gold spoon.. why? because its cheap and I've caught more reds on it than any other, including fancy new 7$/lures

To me it depends on the conditions. Really a redfish will hit about anything if its feeding but some lures are better than others in different conditions. A sunny day you can't beat a gold spoon but overcasty days gets me less hits. Dusk and Dawn a topwater is hard to beat...especially with wamer waters (spring through fall). At night my fovorite would be soft plastics like Jerk Shads or swimming fish, DOA's etc. If I could only have one lure I would have to vote for a Jerk Shad because you can use it anytime.

Almost any plastic on almost any jighead. Light colors in clear water, dark colors in dark water. All the rest of the choices are just to catch the fisherman.

Default Redfish Lures

It's gotta be a gold spoon, jig or topwater plug. JMHO C2

Got a nice surprise pup slowly bouncing a hot pink gulp shrimp bayside at Gulf Shores, only at it for a short while.

Generally, I also think a hungry, feeding red will hit almost anything. For stained water I lile a spinnerbait, like a Redfish Magic. I tend to use instead of a spoon 'cause it has worked more consistently for me.

I just bought 2 of those, but I haven't had any luck with them yet... I do like that it kind of combines the idea of gold spoon plus soft plastic, plus it's pretty much weedless.

Spinnerbait is probably by favorite bass lure behind topwater. Especially for river bassin

I hear mirrolures are good but I've never had any luck with them... I use live bull minnows, shrimp... and for artificial baits I like GULP new penny 3" shrimp on a 1/4 or 1/8 oz jighead.
