Top 10 Plastics for Bass

Open up the tackle box of any serious bass angler and you’ll find a sizeable stash of “go-to” soft plastics. The reason is simple – these tantalizing artificials often produce – even when the fish are tight-lipped and showing little interest in other types of lures.

All soft plastics are not created equal, however. Some are simply more effective and enticing than others.There will be myriads at this week’s ICAST in Las Vegas, all hoping to make their way into a store near you.

There could be a hot soft plastic to come out of the fishing industry’s largest show, but that will be determined down the road if and when it becomes a stock weapon in anglers’ arsenals.

So what are the soft plastics that anglers heading out today should stock up on?

The pro staff of Fishhound.com got together with award-winning outdoor writer and editor, Dan Johnson, and compiled the following list of 10 top-producing plastic worms, creature baits and swimbaits.
