    I know it's the wrong time of year but cleaning up and sharpening hooks to store for the winter along with a bunker arms build thread gave me the idea.
    Post up your favorite lures, pics of the entire tackle box whatever you want that's fishing related. The boat you use, the rods, the reels, the fish themselves. I'll start with one of my favorite top water lures the lucky 13. It can be used in multiple ways, if you retrieve it fast enough it will dive down about 3 feet max. You can just twitch it on the top or stop and go it will dive down then float back up it's pretty versatile. They come in a variety of sizes and colors however they no longer make the tiny one and if course it was the best. I've had a hard time finding them and when I do they are in bad shape or $25 each. I still buy them, even at that price and fish with them. I wish I could find some more, any leads would be appreciated. Now the pic.....

    The old Excalibur Fat Free Fingerling square bill in Bill Dance Citrus Shad. I can't find a picture of the square bill, but this is the dude. I've had a permanent search on eBay for years to try to snag them when they come up. :D

    It's flat out awesome in clear or stained water. There's just something about it when it deflects off timber, rocks or any other structure that drives the bass wild.


    Another favorite is the Bandit 100 Series square bill crank baits in Pearl Chartreuse and Rootbeer.



    I'm a big fan of Gary Yamamoto's Senko and the 8" single tail Grubs too. It sucks that Yamamoto discontinued the 8" Grub. Awesome for bucket mouths! June Bug and Black and Blue Laminate are hard to beat in all water colors.


    Hell, while I'm at it I really like Case Salty Sinkin' Shads too, especially Pearl White for Smallies! Toss it up in the foam cause that's where they're home! :D

    Fall bass fishing in the Arizona desert lakes, one of my favorite times of the year.
    Spinnerbaits work best for me...

    Here are the two that have caught me the most fish this year, Rick Clunn Jerkbait, and a Cavitron Buzzbait:

    The old classics still catch fish too. I've seen Lucky 13s, Jitterbugs, floating minnows (Rapala, AC Shiner), and even Hula Poppers catch a lot of fish!

    Hula poppers. Had not hear that name in a while. Probably have one decaying in my tackle box.

    I always have a couple of Jitterbugs and Torpedo's in my tackle box "just in case". Life interfered with my normal fishing fever this year, and I just couldn't get into it. This thread is making me wish for an early spring though!

    Can't pick just one.

    Zoom Brush Hog since I caught a 10+ lb bass on it in CA.

    Yamamoto Senko for all around awesomeness. Once caught 2-5 lb bass on 28 straight casts in NY on Senko's. That was crazy.

    Roboworm 6" sculpin. No longer made, but I have a stash. They are smallmouth drop shotting goodness.

    Buzzbaits cause when they work big bass simply destroy them.
