1. first tied on would be a 1/2 ounce spinner bait, yes it is hard!

2.rapala ssr5 shad rap in suspending.

3. youzui rattle trap,in grey gohst colour.

these three would suit all fishing situations with out the plastics .

How long is piece of string mate. All depends on location I suppose. ???
But without knowing anything I'd go for a Deception shrimp for river bass & some lake work. Blitz Baga for Lakes (Ultra deep) & probably a Rattling Spot or similar type for work at any depth.
Trying to cover all the bases with that selection. :-/
Extend the list out to top 10 & the Voodoos will get right up there mate, but three makes me think too much. Ouch, that hurts.

ok then lets say for impoundment bass Somerset Cressbrook Boondooma.

I was thinking of top 5 but whooooooooo boy the selection does open up. :) is just for interest is all :)

Mate, I'm still trying to think of three different lures that I have actually caught Bass on #??? O.K. here goes,

1. #Jaysea Patriot 65 (Gold and Black)
Dives to 5m and has produced bass in Somerset and North Pine Dams.

2. Eddy Mini Dam Buster (Black with thin White stripes)
A must for Cressbrook Dam, trolling the shallows on a late afternoon Summers day.

3. Walley Diver (Green and Silver) Small version.
Caught my first few Bass on this lure in Hinze Dam.

No 1

Tilsan Bass in grey/green herring colour. This is a top lure in clear impoundments,particulary at Borumba


Manns 10+ in metalic blue. Top lure just about anywhere on sunny days.


Merlin deep diver in pink/purple/blue.Get the one with the arrow shaped bib.Caught heaps of bass on this one in Bejelke one day when nothing else worked.Don,t be afraid to troll/work this one a little faster than normal.

It would be biased if I made my choice, as you might know. Don't forget the Fyshee's deep somerset (purple) and the Brolga

Only 3, OK

Purple and Black Voodoo, (54cm at North Pine)
Red and Black Scale Voodoo, (Too big, lost fish and lure at North Pine)
Pink and Silver Micro Mullet behind the downrigger. (Get sick of catching them at Cressbrook.)

Yes i know u would be bias Blitz,:) as i would be at what i use :), Nice fish aussie ;D. another voodoo bites the dust to the fish gods mantle aussie :o

I never forget about Fyshee lures.

1st Choice - Chartruese 15+ Flick Cobra for fish at 5-6m.

2nd Choice - XXXX yellow coloured 10+ Ken Radunz Mongoose for fish at 4m.

3rd Choice - Stumpjumper No. 3 in chromed green back and gold underbelly for fish at 3m.

Could substitute any Mongoose, Blitz Baga or Cobra in 10+ or 15+ for choice 1 or 2.
