Bass Pro Shops Finesse/Drop Shot Goby
I don't know what the other guys were doing, but I caught'em like wild fire. Best Drop Shot bait that I have ever used and I also live in the south. I've also had great results on a Carolina Rig and even Flippin Mats at the big 'O' in south FL. Guys wake up, try these baits when bass get hard to catch. You will be 'The Man' at the boat ramp.

Unusual soft bait
I picked up a package of these in green pumpkin to add to my soft plastic arsenal. These are very nice in the water. Even when rigged with just a worm hook and no weight they are head-heavy enough to sink nicely and the tail has a good movement as it falls. While I doubt that this will end up being my "go-to" bait, I do think this is worth pulling out when the fish aren't biting on anything else. Eventually I will pick up more of these in different colors.

Not Great but Good
I tried the natural colored gobies on a lead jig head kinda like rigging a tube, casted it out, let it sit on the bottom and slowly dragged it, the smallies love 'em. Even in ponds where the main food source is bluegills they catch fish. The only downside is after a couple of fish, the nose and skinny tail starts ripping.

not a southern bait.
I thought I'd give this bait a try but turned out not to like it. It's not a bad bait but it's definitely not a southern bait. It's probably good for smallies but where I fish, we don't have smallies. I tried drop shotting and shakyhead with these but they didn't produce.
