TOP 5 BAITS FOR BASS FISHING
If you could only use 5 baits for bass fishing anywhere in the country, these baits pictured and described here would be the top choices the owner and staff here at The Bass College would suggest. Over the last 40 years of bass fishing from coast to coast, for trophy bass and for tournament limits, these baits have proven themselves to be in the top 5.

Overall, just about anywhere in the country, be it lakes, ponds, or rivers, the jig has proven itself to be one of if not the TOP BAIT for bass and BIG BASS. More recently, the swimjig techniques have proven to be an invaluable tool all over the country
2. CHATTERBAITS/BLADED JIGS
The Chatterbait has taken more limits in tournaments and produced some of the biggest bass we have caught all over the country. Recently, the chatterbait has won major events in the FLW tour.
The crankbaits are a staple in our tackle boxes, In rivers, lakes and ponds, all times of the year shallow and mid depth crankbaits such as the Lucky Craft, Manns, and Spro have been the reason for winning a tournament or just flat out producing a ton of bass for videos or for fun.
while we use the chatterbaits most of the time, spinnerbaits still have their time and place and are a mainstay for us here at The Bass College. The best spinnerbaits we have ever used are the War Eagle, Lucky Craft, and Terminator. The new Delaware State Record bass pictured here in our gallery, was taken on a spinnerbait!!
Buzzbaits not only work on feeding bass or in the summer, or at low light periods, they will flat out work all day long worked the proper way in the proper places. There are specific techniques we use to catch giant trophy bass on buzzbaits and they are shown in our videos here and on YOUTUBE.
The best buzzbaits we have used so far are the Black Flash clacker which is no longer produced, the BOOYAH black clacker buzz, and the Megastrike Cavitron clacker.
Soft plastics, such as a Senko, of course are a necessity as well, but these are the top 5 we picked here. There are times when a Senko or thin worm rigged weightless or on a drop shot are the only things to use, but, if you had these 5 baits for bass you would fair pretty well most of the time anywhere in the country.
