Fin Junkie Football Jig
I've fished Lake O' the Pines with this jig in the watermelon/brown color and had phenomenal success! I consider Lake O' the Pines "East Texas". I like this jig and it's the best football jig out there if you ask me. I like the head design, and the hook is super sharp! Great quality skirts too. Missile Baits Twin Turbo
As far as trailers go, the majority of the time I use this double tail grub in the "Green Pumpkin" color or "Bamer Craw" color. This is my go-to double tail grub. I love the action of this grub and it's great for football jigs! Netbait Paca Craw
I do like to use this craw during the Summer. Everyone knows that the Paca Craws are top notch baits and are in a lot of anglers' tackle boxes. The flappers on this bait move and kick a lot of water and are great for helping the fish find the bait. It's also loaded with scent and pork fat so the fish hold on longer. Gene Larew Biffle Bug
Another great option is a Biffle Bug. These things have crazy action and I use these when the water is stained or muddy. I've always loved the Biffle Bug and they're great fish-catchers! Berkley Gulp Alive Attractant
Don't forget to spray this on your baits. This stuff is awesome and I spray all of my baits (soft & hard) with this stuff. Using spray will not only mask your human scent but it will help the fish find the bait better in deep water. It won't make them bite better, but they'll find it easier and hold on longer. It's potent so use just a little bit. And if you happen to get this on your boat, it comes off super easy. Just splash a little water on it and it's gone. Good stuff!
