Top 10 (+) Smallmouth Bass Plastics

Top 10 (+) Smallmouth Bass Plastics


The "tick." That's what we're all after. That subtle yet electric jolt transmitted up the line, along the graphite, and into your fingers.

It's the sensation being telegraphed by a biting smallmouth that just clamped its powerful jaws down on your bait. Nothing like using plastics and single hooks to harvest ticks. Whether using a jig, an offset hook, a wacky rig, or whatever, feeling bass snarf plastics is special.


These are the smallmouth bass plastics I depend on every day. Not that I don't use other versions of these styles or other shapes. I do. I have to. It's part of the job. And most plastics produce. Some better than others. Some have regional appeal and some are what I call "universally effective." The following list falls into that latter category for me--baits I can count on when I really need ticks anywhere from Maine to Lake Jocassee, or from Pickwick to the Canadian Shield.
