So we get home today after multi drs appts and the flats out back look pretty good. Then, something starts busting bait. Drug out the yak, took a Badonkadonk, a Vudu Mullet, and a Skitter walk in a baggie (and a pair of pliers).

Forgot how easy the yak is. 10 minutes and ready to fish.

Question: If you have only 5 lures to take which would they be?

1.) Soft Plastic Paddle tail on an 1/8 oz quality jig head. One of my favorite:

2.) Suspending Jerkbait / Twitchbait

3.) Topwater

I would post a picture but there's a Jack swimming around in the sound with my favorite topwater. If anyone finds a Livingston Lures Walking Boss let me know.

I would just want to make sure I had all levels of the water column covered, which the above does very well, assuming that paddle tail is going to be bounced along the bottom.

Great thing about the paddle tail is how versatile it can be.

I fish three lures, if I can't get anything to eat with them, I go home.

1) Mirrolure twitchbait, aka my search-and-destroy lure. I locate where fish are holding with this lure.

2) Soft plastic + jighead. My go-to here is usually Gulp. I bought a bunch of packs for super-cheap about a year ago and haven't burned through them yet.

3) Gold spoon. If the first two fail, then the gold spoon is my last resort. It rarely fails me.

People seem to converge on the same thing.
17 MR and jig heads with soft plastics

The soft plastics I fish are usually either gulp shrimp (color new penny) or gulp white grubtails. I also like paddle tail soft plastics
I keep a bone colored topwater for early mornings, and a gold spoon.

Youtube has videos to show you how to hook the soft plastic properly.
Use 15-20 lb flouro leader too, tie it to the lures using a canoe mans loop for better action

go to

1. Lemon head matrix shad on 1/2oz head in the bay, 1/8oz on flatts

2. 17mr in electric chicken with added pink feathered rear treble

3 chartreuse 8" curly tail with 1oz head in bay, 4" with 1/8 oz on flatts.

I still have mixed feelings on the vudu and gulp shrimps. Sometimes they work good and others not so much. The 3 I listed always work under the lights or early morning
