Also, try twin-tail grubs in the usual crayfish imitation colors. I like them as a multipurpose bait when I'm traveling real light; they work well with faster retrieves or skipped across the bottom like a tube. I think the ones I usually buy are made by Zoom but that's only because those are the only twin-tails I can usually find.
I don't use soft plastics for Smallies nearly as much as others - Don't seem to have alot of luck with them. I lose more jigheads than I catch fish. Anyway, I always just have luck with 2" Mister Twisters in White or Purple. If water is kinda murky, I'll up it to 3". Usually use a 1/32 ounce jighead w/ 2" and 1/16 ounce with 3". I had also used MadMan Craw tubes too and had alot of luck with those too. I just don't like using soft plastics. Prefer to use Rebel Teeny Wee Craws instead - Firetiger and Texas Red work good for me, but I also have been using a Chrome one too with alot of sucess.
