A masterpiece from a Bassmaster champ—a Bass Pro exclusive, made to Kevin's own specifications by Strike King!" I create a lot of baits for Strike King. They build the baits that I depend on in tournaments. I know that Strike King baits have components that are made to stand up to tough fishing conditions. Why would I fish anything else? The answer is simple -- Strike King lures are the best!"
NOTE: The head will be either solid or scale, depending on current stock.

I would stick to the bright colors for everything.
If you like throwing soft plastic, try Strike King's Caffine Shad, or Reaction Innovations Dipper, or a Swim Senko. Any of these will work well all through the fall.
Flippin' is another way to fish it if you come across heavy cover. Just drop into cover and work up and down.

*In light of the Gulf catastrophe please be a responsible angler. We need to protect the fish and their environment.
For heavier tackle (rod and line) and flippin', use a heavier jig, at least 3/8oz. For swimming the jig, 1/4 or 3/8oz. may be enough.
In clear water, use a natural color, blue or smoky shad, grn pumpkin, or black blue. Stained water, black still good, but a little chartruese helps.
USE THAT COLOR
Normally, grn pumpkin is a good solid color too, if more of a dark olive shade.
In areas that have shad, white is dynamite.
I tend to use Texas Craw, Bluegill or Green Pumpkin in the natural lakes of Minnesota.

For more of a craw look and for good balance and a slower vertical drop, use something like a craw, or a chunk which has claws.
