Are there any bass lures you always have in your box?

Every good bass fishing enthusiast will have knowledge of how to use a vast range of bass fishing lures so that they can change those that they are using as often as necessary. After all, you have no idea how well certain lures are going to work on any given day. The weather, fishing conditions and any number of other factors can play a massive part in determining what your haul for the day is. As such, you need to be able to reach into your box and change your lures at a moment’s notice. There are 3 that you should have in there at all times, and another one during winter. The first absolute must is the plastic worm. This works wonders in all conditions. Without it, you may seriously lose out because if nothing else works then the plastc worm often will. The bass tend to go mad for it and it works with all species of bass. The second lure that I always have in my box is the spinnerbait. A great alternative to the plastic worm, it works well in shallow waters as well as in top and mid depth ranges in deeper lakes. It is also perfect for use in more choppy waters should they become rough when the weather changes. The third is a spoon. If the bass are not biting at the surface then the spoon is ideal for use in deeper waters. It is also incredibly easy to use and achieves good results. Finally, in cooler weathers always make sure that you have a buzzbait available because that will draw the bass that may not otherwise bite out. It can turn a day around in less than ideal temperatures.
