Its nothing fancy but my "all time" favorite lure has to be a 7" black with blue flake or green pumpkin curly tail worm texas rig. I have caught a lot of fish with that lure over the years.

For pure enjoyment of fishing, Zara Spook. (Spro Bronzeye is close behind though).

For catching numbers of fish, white/red chatterbait.

For fun, nothing beats a buzzbait over thinning weeds in the fall. Man, thinking about it almost makes me want September to get here....

For shore fishing, I have caught more bass on rapala original floaters of various sizes and colors than anything else.

For some reason I didn't even really start throwing them more often than anything else in the tackle box until last summer, but I've really been convinced that they are now my go-to lure.

My favorite lure for catching fish is a black and blue jig, that would be my go to lure, but my favorite lure to fish is a sumo frog in the slop.

My favs are the spinnerbaits and weedless jigs I make -

Jigs in black/blue or watermelon with zoom worms

Spinnerbaits in with watermelon/chartruese skirts and white twister trailers.

If you pinned me in corner and said, "you have one presentation for the day and need to catch 5 fish or we'll make you spend the rest of your life on sunny, 80 degree days sitting in line to get your boat out of Prior Lake," I would take a 4" ringworm and an 1/8 oz. mushroom head.

For numbers I'm with Ray on this one. A 4" straight tail power worm (black/Char.-( no longer in production) on a 1/16th or 1/8th oz. mushroom head jig.

For that pig. A Black power slug and a 1/40z. mushroom head jig.

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
