If it were a lure to just catch A FISH of any random species I'd have to go with a small minnow crank.....Rapala. I'll be honest and say that a small fly with rubber legs will catch maybe more than anything though. For bass I'd have to go with a basic black trick worm. Works any time of year.....fish it as slow as needed, when needed.

If you stranded me in a remote area with a rod and one lure it would be a gold bladed white tailed rooster tail. If anything is hungry it will hit it eventually.

A small tub of bait shrimp #1 choice. I have caught Largemouth bass, Striped bass, Lot and lots of Bream, Crappie, Channel Catfish, Blue Catfish, Pompano, Drum, Croaker and more that I've forgotten. People don't know that it works as good for freshwater as it does for saltwater. Artificial I have caught more fish on a white zman paddletail and jighead than any other bait. This year I plan to focus a lot more on hardbaits tho.

well so far for what I see its the rooster tail in the leed .For fresh and salt warter.
But they got the colors wrong. :) White with black spots, silver "ripple folded" (whatever you call the surface like a crinkle cut fry) blade caught most of my fish until I was a teenager, mostly bank fishing. I didn't start soft plastics until much later.

Growing up we didn't fish that much. If we did when I was a little boy we were mostly bank fishing with crickets etc. Usually my dad would end up pulling out a Roostertail and catching a bass or two on it. Hence my handle. I think it was the only artificial that I thought worked until I began fishing seriously myself.

It was my dad's lure also. My uncles (who were actually better fishermen) used mostly bait and jigs in FL when we visited, but at home in AL and GA my dad took me to farm ponds (he worked for a large poultry company) and we fished what is basically the Rooster Tail, though the actual brand he bought was Abu Reflex. I just found an old (sold on Etsy) vintage one:
