Just wondering what everyone's favorite big fish bait is. I know the common ones are frog and jig, but just one other people's input.

I've had my best luck catching bigger fish on a big swim bait.

Picasso Shock Blade

Definitely this bait right here! I've caught numerous 7+ pound fish on a vibrating jig. I was led on to the scene by a Lake Fork guide about vibrating jigs and I've never looked back.

The Picasso Shock Blade is a great vibrating jig. It's made up of super high quality components with a realistic paint job on the head. It has a good hook and it stays straight and sharp. There's plenty of color to choose from! Add a fluke or a small paddle tail swimbait on the back and you're good to go!

Tip: the slower, the better, when you reel these.

Over the years, I've caught more really big fish on spinnerbaits than anything. Three 10+ fish have come on spinnerbaits, two in one day. After that it would be a lizard, caught a 13 and a 10.75 on lizards, plus many 8-9 pound fish. Sub double digit fish in the 8-9 pound range have come on a wide variety of baits, jigs,spinnerbaits, cranks, never caught a fish over 6 on a topwater though. I'd sure like to though. Smallest lure I ever caught a big fish on was a 10.25 on a 3" tube bed fishing.

These are my big fish custom baits that I have thrown all my life. I have lost count of the 10's on them. It is not so much the lure that you are throwing; but how you have it loaded up. It must present itself with all the the things that Big Bass are looking for, (Sight, Sound, Smell, Viberation and Presentation). I will list them in the order of the most big bass caught on each.

- Custom Flash Shad Spook
- Custom Hank Parker Spinner Bait
- Custom Halloween Spinner Bait for Bad Weather Conditions.
- Custom Baby Doll Jig made from scratch
- Custom Mexico Spinner bait has produced the most Big Bass in Mexico and Lake Falcon.
- Brush Hog has produced the most 6-8 lb. bass in Mexico, Falcon, Amistad and Ivie.
- Custom Flukes fished pinch weight on nose and deep water C-rig on the contours.
- Custom 10" ring worm (like the Lake Fork Secret).
** There is no doubt in my mind that having each of these baits dripping in the appropriate Pure Extracts has sewed up the deal on many fish over 10 lbs.

Even through all the crazy new baits and sensations these days I think the jig is the number one big fish bait of all time. Ive caught big ones on swimbaits, chatterbaits, and others, but if theyre eating and I wanna upgrade to a bigger bite I'll put that jig rod in my hand every time. Jig with a rage craw has caught me more 6+ fish than anything.

Yep a big worm and a jig catch the most big ones for me too!
