Ok so this is similar to my last poll, but this time you can select only one shape.
Your stuck on a remote island, you find a crate of softbaits thats fallen out of a plane over the island (man im getting good with my setting the scene hun :P ) there is a huge selection of flavours, but they are all the same shape.
So what is it?

Let me know if there is one that you want that is not on here, otherwise vote away.
Heres some to get us started.

I catch most of my fish on the 5" Jerk Shad but have caught the bigger ones on the 7".

Didnt realise until just now the Jerk Shads come in 4" and 6" as well.

I think your right.
Would be interesting to see if its a location based thing also (different baits work for different areas)....

Im still waiting for the obligitory "I dont use softbaits" comment :lol:

Not that I could EVER see myself restricted to just one bait or lure (gawd, just been surveying my several large tackle boxes :$ ) combining the last two polls would see me fishing with the 7" Grub (curly tail) in pink shine. Mmmm... I could live with that if I really really really really REALLY had to :lol:
