Our favorite bass fishing lures are rubber, or soft plastic worms, as shown on the right. We have caught more largemouth bass on soft plastic worms than any other lure.

Purple worms are especially good, but other colors also work.

Rig them Texas Style , which makes them weedless. When you cast them out, let them gently sink to the bottom, undulating as they drop. Often a bass will wack them as they near the bottom.

The Rapala Floating Minnow is a great lure for catching largemouth bass. It imitates a minnow, which is one of the Largemouth Bass' favorite foods.

The original Rapala Minnow is made of balsa wood and floats, great for fishing on, or near the surface. They now have versions that suspend, and can be fished lower in the water column.

When bass are near the bottom rooting for crawfish, lizards and other bottom dwellers, a jig is a good choice to catch them.

This is often the case early in the season when the water is cool, and there are not many baitfish around.

We often add a soft plastic trailer on the hook.
