Here is a revised list of my top 5 favorite smallmouth bass baits. I primarily fish these baits on the Great Lakes for big smallmouth, so several imitate the goby, and I believe these are some of the best baits to catch smallmouth. Either way, these baits will work anywhere and will catch largemouth bass as well. I will link these five baits below!
