Been some “best baits ever” lists over the years, but don’t think there’s been one zackly like this. We – all of us, should you care to accept the mission – are gonna try to narrow ’em all down to the best 10…in order.
Spend any time thinkin’ ’bout it, that’s a TALL order. But so what – so is fishing slow (heehee!).
What we’re looking for is baits that have stood the test of time into right now – in tourney fishing at all levels. So we’re not talkin’ the Mann’s Jelly Worm, Big O crank, Westy Worm, etc. – this is stuff bass-heads still fish, still win derbies with, and that’s in pro boats regardless of sponsors.
Anyhow, here in no particular order is a starter list…which I only had a little input on. What are we missing? What shouldn’t be there? Please give us your bassin’ thoughts, thanks!
