Your top 3 soft plastics

Postby masterbass » Wed Aug 27, 2014 10:41 pm

If you could only have 3 which would you choose? Mine are senkos, gulp jerk shads and fat ikas. I have just about every soft bait under the sun, but anytime I need to catch something I resort to these 3. I wish I had all that money back (could buy a couple of killer combos).

These no name ribbed tubes I get on line in bulk - my money bait.

Zoom Super Fluke

Get ready to laugh - Charlie Brewer 1.5" Crappie Grub. Everything, and bigguns also, will crush these things at times.

Maybe my fish are unsophisticated rubes :lol: I don't know. I can't argue with consistent results ...

Fat Ika,

Gulp shrimp. That last one I don't know if it can qualify as plastic however.

Nice to see Don Iovino get some love! Great guy. I've met him at some shows in the past and he was always willing to talk fishing. Years ago, I placed an order on his web site. I then got a call a few days later from Don and he asked me where I was fishing. He then proceeded to say "...you picked the wrong colors for the lakes you're fishing. These are the colors you want and why..." We then talk fishing for 15-20 minutes. His advice was dead on. Love his spade tail.

Anyhow, I'd choose:

Iovino 6" spade tail in S20 (or Fat Roboworm, depending on how I feel that day lol)
Senko
Hula Grub

It's crazy how effective the spade tail is, especially in certain colors :-$ , in our lakes.
I can't even count how many fish I have caught on it, and what a reasonable price they have on them.
Good to hear that the "The Godfather of Finesse," is a great guy as well.
