Favorite Artificial Bait?

It’s been too quiet figured I’d get a couple posts to get some conversation started post Ian hope everyone made it out ok. My go to is as simple as it gets! Stinger tail(vertical/perp to bottom) grub white body and red tail 1/4 or 3/16 oz red jig head with a peace of gulp of tipped with shrimp to get some smell in the water. Have heard it’s better to mimic the color of the tonic water with root best etc colors but can’t beat red/white. We do mostly backcountry creeks catch all the species in this set up! Like paddle rails too but when snapper are around they seem to get the tail more than the hook. What do you say guys?
