    Want to see what you guys are using. Post up pics of your tackle. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Mines pretty small. Want to see what I should add. I have 2 crank baits and a jerk bait not pictured. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Mines not much bigger, but if I was you I would add more spinner bait options, a couple buzz baits, and some red and purple color schemes(ex:watermelon and plum crazy purple) for soft plastics. You've got me beat on frog choices though.

    I've got watermelon senkos and some purple assorted soft plastics. Mostly just buried under stuff.

    On my second look I think I see them in a tackle box on the right. I always keep a couple rattletraps ready to go too, I've caught a lot of my bass on chartreuse spinnerbaits and rattle traps over the years. I've been trying to master using senko's but I have yet to get the results from them that my better fishing friends have.

    They're my most successful bait. Texas or Carolina rigged I can catch large mouths and small mouths year round. Cris are pretty good for me. Just started trying jigs but crank baits are my least effective. Don't know what it is, just can't catch fish on them.

    I'll post a picture of my tackle box tomorrow as that is what you originally asked people to post.

    I have some Gary Yamamoto senkos if anyone wants to buy them. I have 7 packs, I think 2 or 3 packs are unused and the rest have 1 or 2 missing.

    My tackle isn't much besides a couple frogs, scatter raps, x raps, 5 spinnerbaits, 2 buzzbaits and a 10"x6" tackle bag filled with plastic baits that I barely use because I throw x raps most of the time. I would post pictures but I'm about 2.5 hours away from my tackle.

    Well I recommend x raps, the bass here hammer them as well as the occasional pike. If you get the smaller ones the crappie here love them.

    My go to is a Strike King KVD 1/4oz Red Eye Shad - Chrome Sexy Shad. As far as crank baits, I don't use them often, but when I do, it's Bandit or KVD. Finesse fishing, it's watermelon, black or motor oil color Zoom Trick Worms on a 3/0 EWG Gamagatsu. Lastly, my favorite, topwater - hands down...Ribbit frogs.

    No pics on hand but I generally roll out of the dock with at least 1 senko, 1 flipping bait/jig, 1 deep rig plastic/jig, 1 square bill, and depending on the time of the year a jerk bait or rat'l trap on the boat deck, ready to go. I suck at deep cranking, so despite having a good collection of deep divers, they rarely see the water anymore. Wacky rigged senkos have won me more money in tournaments than any other lure.

    Hammered the white bass on the Illinois River last night on a Xcalibur One Knocker. Me and a friend caught about 30 in a hour right at dark.

    Fly fishing tackle box at it's adolescence.

    I also have a ton of spinning rod lures. Mostly crank baits. Never could master the Texas or Carolina rig.

    Nice flies. It's the opposite for me. Can't get a crank bait to work but Texas and carolina rigs are my specialty.

    Here's mine. As you can probably tell, I'm going to try cranking more this year.
