This bait is getting hard to find, but it's my number one producer. 3" charlie brewer slider grub on a charlie brewer slider head. Darn near snag proof and the smallmouth love em. favorite color is a dark coffee brown (not sure of the color for ordering)

I have zero confidence in spinnerbaits. Zero. Cant catch squat on the full size ones.

Senko's catch fish in puddles, but if I'm fishing the river, NOTHING beats a Rebel Wee Craw.

$4.14 at Wally World. When I go river fishing, I grab 3 wee craws, thow them like crazy, and I reel in smallies every single time. It is, in my opinion, the best river smallie lure ever invented.

My 2nd favorite is a dark colored 3 inch tube.

If I can't catch a smallie using those two lures, I go home.

Since 2008, I haven't gone home skunked using that combo. I am NOT an expert fisherman, and I have been spoiled by a private lake for my entire life, but when I do fish the river for smallies, the combo of Wee Craws and 3 inch tubes has never let me down.

In the river, I agree, but then again, my previous post indicates my reliance upon said lures.

Do you have a color of wee craw you always use , or do you mix it up?

In my experience the lighter color ones don't catch as many fish as the Darker color ones. Lately I have had a lot of luck on the Dark Red &Brown Wee Craw , or what I think people have been referring to as the "Nest Robber" color.

I've used the mainly the brown one that fades to orange on the bottom. I just try to pick ones close to the color of the craws in the creeks I fish.

For my area I do great with a arke gold spinner on a 1/8 oz head with pumpkin/chartuse Berley powerbait twister tail for numbers of fish ,but for large fish I catch most on a Rebel fat A in baby bass finish .

Up here I like the Rebel Craws for lures, but honestly seem to catch more smallies on live crawfish that I catch with a small minnow net, nightcrawlers on a small jighead, and live chubs.

If your a fan of the rebel crawl, which you should be try and find the rebel hellgrammite. I catch more fish per cast and more species. Smallmouth, saugeyes, channels, rock bass, bluegill, carp etc......
