I’d have to go with the original silver 2 hook Rapala and black and yellow H&H spinnerbaits as the best for me. The worst...I have a whole tackle box full of demoted baits. I hate to throw them away, but neither do I see the point at throwing them at bass.

Worst- Berkeley J Walker 120! Bought from BPS 2 weeks ago, used 3 times caught 2 small bass, it started sinking in the back, I looked at it and it had water in it and a crack along the back approx. 1.5”... Emailed Berkeley, no response, worst $8 I’ve EVER spent on a lure!


If you take it back with you on your next trip to Bass Pro, I'm sure they'll swap you out for another one. I do like the J Walker, but the Drift Walker is my go to topwater.

Lateral Perch comes to mind. I know some caught a few but I don't remember getting 1 bite on those things. Anybody do any good on this?

Blinko! I worked in a big tackle store for 13 years and when that lure first came out we sold a bunch of them.
I think they are fairly valuable collectors items now.

Worst Whopper Plopper I know they catch fish but I am zero for 2 years on them.

I bought a few icast winner Livetarget lures, they all look like multiple shad in one lure, never really had much luck with any of them, I guess they catch more fisherman than fish, and they weren't cheep at the time I bought them. I really thought they would work better than they had.
