Traps - windy, cloudy, colder colored water. Spring when it is 55-60 degree water, start burning that thing.
Buzzbait - evening, morning, summer, cloudy
Dropshot - anytime. Just stay with it

I've never had any luck with bass jigs or Texas rigged worms.
I'd say a solid 85% of the fish I caught last year were on really standard Texas rigs. Senkos of various colors and some purple twister-tail worms I picked up (though those only worked in spring in a reservoir, so pretty clear water).

The other 15% were ned rigs and some random catches throwing various "crappie"-sized grubs and such on little jigheads.

As far as things that don't work for me... pretty much everything that isn't those things. I've NEVER caught anything on a buzzbait, chatterbait, lipless crank, etc. IDK if it's because I don't know how to work them or what, but I usually start with those and then fall back onto a Texas or ned rig when those don't work.

It's funny that everyone has a non-favorite so to speak. I've caught a ton of fish on rattlin' Rapalas. I've done well with drop shots. But a couple I have to agree with. Buzzbaits. Thrown them, should have thrown them away. Spoons are made to eat with, not be eaten. And I have never, EVER caught a fish on a Hula Popper or Jitterbug despite my best efforts.

You know it.

What's strange is that, many years ago (in the '50s) we lived across the street from Vic Simich. His son Nick tested lures for Arbogast & to this day, my absolute BEST lure for bass at night is a black 5/8 ounce Jitterbug that he got me hooked on. Surprisingly, I have NEVER fished one during the day!
