I am anxious to see this list develop. My recent experience is limited but I will mention a couple lures that have worked for me over the long term.

My favorite all time jig is a simple single curly tail soft plastic in motor oil, chartreuce, yellow or white. I prefer 1/16th oz.

I also like a few classic crappie jigs in the same size. My favorite patterns are black/white/red, yellow and white.

I like some of the new soft jigs that look like a real fish but they have yet to catch the numbers of fish for me that the oldschool lures have.

If we can add a category for spoons, I will again bring up an oldschool lure, a small red/white daredevil.
Spoons would be great to any lures to catch big gills appriciated
For jigs I use just a 1/16oz round ball head, orange being my favorite color
Crankbaits, don't throw them often but, I love F49 minnow from Rebel
Mepps is my go to in-line!
Plastics, 2.5 inch Berkley Gulp! in Emerald Shinner,#1 #2-Bass Assasin's Panfish Assasin in white, and #3 Mister Twister Exude Nymph in white, crawfish, and black!
Great topic Andrew! From my experience here goes:
Jigs:Feather Jigs...Mister Twister 'Lightnin' Bug' or tie your own feathers to 32nd oz. or smaller jigs.Red feathers work great.Blue and white also.
