BassFIRST had a couple of additional anglers weigh in on their personal choices for early season soft plastic choices. So, why not share them with everyone?

Berkley pros Justin Lucas and Adrian Avena both feel strongly about their soft plastic baits and what to use early in the year. Check out their choices.

“I use a Havoc Bottom Hopper on a ¼-ounce shaky head,” said Lucas. “Green pumpkin is my main color. I dip a tiny bit of the tail in chartreuse dye.

“A Powerbait Bearded Deuce on a football jig is another good option. Usually a ½-ounce jig with green and brown colors.

“Also, a Powerbait Maxscent General on a neko rig, colored green pumpkin party.”

Adrian Avena

“A Pitboss on a Z-Man Jack Hammer,” said Avena. “Black and blue is the color.

“Another one to try is a Powerbait Maxscent General. Green pumpkin color… fish either a wacky rig or on a shaky head jig.

“The Berkley Gulp 3-inch Minnow in the smelt color. Fish that on a jig head or a drop shot.”
