SK Red Eye and RatLTrap are great for the price.

I used Jackall lipless a lot last year. I cant say they are better however.

Yozuri Hardcore Drum in Painted Shad has been my favorite and most effective lipless crankbait for years. Unfortunately and I don't know why, Yo-Zuri discontinued them and Now I see one occasionally on Ebay but never the painted shad.

This was my top trap. I fish Arizona year round and catch fish on traps all the time. Now I have gone to the Megabass vibration x. Dad says I'm nuts to pay $20+ for a bait, but after out fishing 8 to 1, he's convinced.

I use a lot of Megabass lures now. They do really seem to perform better. I spend time retrieving them as well. I've returned to a spot a year later where I lost a lure to retrieve it when the water is down.

I still think Yo Zuri rattlin vibes and Spro Aruku shads are productive winners, but I've been stocking up on Jackall TN full tungsten, disk knockers, and skull shells. The color patterns are to much for me to resist. I also have some Jackall TN slim 8s coming.

Doug which model vibration x are you throwing? Also what colors have been most successful for you? I'm going to pick one or two up. I'm fishing mostly clear and semi stained reservoirs in the northeast for smallmouth and largemouth. I got one of the LV500 to try this year but I'll pick up one or two of the vibration x as well.

For me I've had the best luck on the red eye shad because that's the rattle bait I've thrown the most.

As this is my first post since being on here, and since it's a post about my favorite bait to throw, I figured perfect! Saying I'm addicted to a trap bite is an understatement. I love, love , love throwing them. Seems like when I first started using traps, it was with a strike king red eye shad. Gold and black was definitely my most productive color finding I can catch fish on that just about anywhere I go. And now they have the tungsten 2 tap , and that is money for sure. Have used the storm traps and I think those work pretty well. And now I seem to be spending more and more on the hard to find lv100 :D

The Megabass vibration-x ultra ito tennessee shad is the best color I have found but this color has not been made for many years. It has a clear belly with beads, some red.

I picked up a batch used from Japan a year ago.

Yo Zuri has a knack for killing off good baits suddenly with no explanation as to why. What's worse is I've seen at least 2 instances of them bringing back a discontinued bait from the dead (L Minnow & the Snap Bean) at a noticeably lower level of quality ](*,)
