My 2 cents, since there are no defined areas or time of year.
Bass LM or SM - Cabin Creek Spider Jigs never let me down.
Trout - Flies, mostly nymphs like the Zebra Midge.

If you are talking live bait...all fish will eat a worm.

Learn how to fish a Senco type worm for bass. Watermelon color and black work well in many areas. Trout an old stand by is a phebee in gold color or a rooster tail lure. Both have brought a lot of fish to the boat.

I caught my biggest trout on a jerk bait , yes they work on trout. It was a breeder though so it took the bigger bait. Spinners do work on both, but bass are touchy on the temps and water conditions for bait's. Must be why the tackle box is so big. LOL

I believe that every fish loves its food, and when you catch it you need to think it over carefully than to entice it to catch it. I've read a lot of articles on the Internet, and if I'm really confused by this information. But I found a guide for fishermen I'm sure every fishing will bring a good catch Fish OnFish OnFish On

For catching any species that strike lures, you can't go wrong with small ball head jigs and soft plastic lures, the reasons as follows:

1. a huge variety of lure shapes and actions that work
2. being able to fish a river or lake at a slow or medium retrieve
3. a few colors will do for all species
4. being able to search larger areas and depths with lures versus live bait
5. strike detection is better felt than for many lures, allowing you to set the hook faster

Jig head weight should range from 1/32 oz - 1/16 oz. Jig heads should be unpainted in order to not be a distraction from the lure or add to its length.

Here are a few:
Crappie Magnate


thin prong tail grub:


blunt tail:


Slider Worm:


Curl tail grub:


A 4 or 6 lb test fluorocarbon leader allows a good lure action and a light action rod helps cast long distance as well as a good hookset.
