I like swimmers, all kinds, 7" Bombers, Mambo minnow. Metal lipped swimmers, etc. Some like to swim them slow, I like to work a plug. I'll retrieve , lift rod tip quick two or three times, wait a second, then retrieve again.
I like bucktails, with a curltail, green. I like to bounce these off the bottom from a jetty. Have to keep this moving.
Darters are my favorite, another rod tip lifting plug, moderate retrieve. Retrieve, lift, wait, do over.
Poppers, shallow water with rocks, surface action. Cast plug, pop rod tip, repeatedly. About two reel handle turns, then pop. Repeat till plug is in.
I use all of the above and more.
