I agree...

I agree! The first time I pulled the speed craw through the water near the boat to see the action I got excited! I've caught ever type of fish except specks...but then again I have never tried it...I'm sure they would eat it!

Talk to many of the pro's

They all say spinnerbait. There is never any weather condition it can't be fished and it can be fished fast and slow deep and shallow. Hard to fish a worm with heaavy wave action.

Tough Choice

I have never tried the Speed Craw, but it looks like I'll be getting some.

All-around, I would have to go with a long senko-type worm. You can rig it Texas-syle, shaky-head, Carolina, whacky, weightless, and drop-shot. It works everywhere and at all depths. If you need it smaller, you can always just cut some off.

specialized lure

I use a plug, but tweak it. I take off the treble hook, then throw away that useless piece of plastic. Put a live minnow or small crawfish on the hook. Works great.

A 4 inch Zoom finesse worm (watermelon/red or junebug)and a rootbeer/chartreuse 100 series Bandit.

However, if I was stranded on an island and could only have 1 bait, it would be a 1/16 ounce beetle spin with a black/chartreuse tube jig. That catches everything that swims!!

Best lure

I guess the best 'all around' lure would have to be a spinner bait. What other lure can catch fish year round in all conditions while giving an angler several different methods of fishing it? You can work it in the grass or open water when fish are schooling. You can slow roll it deep. Flip it. Pitch it. Buzz it. Burn it. You name it. How many people do you know who caught their first bass on a spinner bait? You can tie one for someone who's never fished a day in their life and tell'em to just crank it back to the boat or you can win a classic with one like KVD did this year(AND A CRANKBAIT). Spinnerbait......best all around no doubt.

Ultravibe Speed Craw

I agree. The speed craw can be drug on the bottom, jigged, swam like a spinnerbait, or swam on top. You don't even have to adjust the bait, all you have to do is reel it in differently.
