a senko is a lot of peoples favorite or  a lizard but i know a lot of people love baby brush hogs but you cant go wrong with soft plastics so long as you get the color right that is the major factor

In a new area I usually throw a crankbait. If there's a lot of weeds in the area use a weedless frog they have great results. I've also had great results with a jig with a grub on the hook.

Topwater   Try a popper or a top runner, jitterbug, buzz bait along the weeds or some soft plastic. Give it time and you will have a bass and be hooked

I use a prerigged worm called a Bass Stopper. 5 1/2 inches in the natural color with 3 hooks and anise scent. http://stopperlures.com I recently bagged a 7 pounder with a 1/2 oz. Bill Lewis rat-l-trap Chrome/Blue Back

You should base your bait on season, temp and condition of the water. For ex. cold water early spring use a lizard for a reaction bite.  As far as fishing from the shore just keep in mind theat bass are Ambush predators.  Look for cover that a bass can use to hide in like: logs, edge of lily pads, under water ledges and so on.

I never gave into the jerkbait hype for prespawn bass, but my goodness they are freaking amazing.  Been using the rapala versions right now, loooking to upgrade to luckycraft in the near future.
