There’s no lure in your box that won’t catch bedding fish, but there are some that will catch them better.

Before Grigsby leaves the dock on a sight fishing day, he’ll have the following Strike King baits tied onto rods; Rage Tail Lizard (watermelon red or green pumpkin), with the tail dipped in chartreuse dye; Rage Tail Craw (white); Bleeding Bait tube (white with some red); 10-inch Thumper Worm (black/blue); and Hack Attack Jig (white) with a Rage Tail Craw (white).

“Lure color generally isn’t as important as is your ability to see the bait and know when the bass sucks it in,” he says. “That’s why I like lighter colors on small baits or will add some chartreuse to the tails of others.”

However, he says there are days when color or lure size make a difference. Baits that undulate or move with natural water currents while sitting still can aggravate a bass into biting. “If a fish is locked on there and big enough to fool with, keep experimenting with baits until you hit one that the bass seems to notice more,” Grigsby says. “It can be a nerve-racking process, but big ones make it worthwhile.”
