I know we tried this one before on the old CLF board. The new system of setting up poles should help to get more feedback.

Plastics seem to be leading.

Tubes, worms, or sencos?

I find it hard to beleive that barely anyone has chossen spinnerbaits or crankbaits.But then again the question is FAVORITE lures,which for many the topwater bites are truly the best.Seeing a bass come up and nail a lure is second to none,i even get a kick out of it when they miss it but you can tell the bass is still following a popper.The next twitch usually results in the slam. I wonder what some of you do when you are getting short strikes on a popper,do you keep throwing the popper even though the bass arent quite taking it.Or do you go to some other bait?I often fish poppers and have a hard time going to another lure when this short striking is happening.any ideas on this subject?

When I'm popping poppers - I want nothing but line between my rod/reel and the plug. No swivel, no clip, no split ring, nutt'in. I want my popper to hang tail down with its nose above the water. After a bass whacks it, I start reeling but "try" not to start the rod sweep until I feel the weight of the fish. Otherwise I pull the plug away from my prize. I'm not married to any lures or techniques. I just keep changing this and that until something lands in the net.

Kevin, I liked Pete's idea of tying the tube jig a foot off the end the topwater. I've never tried it but it looks like it would work for short/finicky striking fish.
