I'm very new to this but my favorites are Fluke styles and frogs because thats what I fish the most of.

I own a LOT of creature bait molds and my favorite is the Berry Bug in both sizes. The swimming legs are really effective.

It's a great creature, works well in the slop as a frog, as a trailer and is da bomb on a swing jig crawled along the bottom in the fall.

I like it because the body is not too thick so you don't need really large hook sizes.

I always have one rigged up. For the summer it's Texas rigged with a 1/4 oz bullet weight held tight to the body with a bobber stop. I fish it like a frog and then let it fall at the edge of the weeds. Then reel in back slowly for a few feet.

I also pitch it into holes in the Lilly Pads and watch the line for the hit. I like the slow fall.

I'm looking to get some opinions on your favorite molds.

-craws
-creature baits
-worms
-large worms
-lizards
-frogs
-small swimbaits (under 6")
-large swimbaits
-fluke style baits
-drop shot
-other

Let me break down the ones I like:
Craws: Mad Dad, 702 and 706 craw, Z craw
Creatures: Stinger, brush hog style, cherry picker, Biffle bug, Crazy Flapper
Worms: 4" fat finesse worms from BassTackle, 6" finesse worm, stick bait from BaitJunky
Large worms: Ol' Monster style from BaitJunkys
Lizards: I have the 6" and 7.75" from bass tackle both are great
Frogs: Keitech noisy flapper from Ukraine, Do it frog is great for the plopping legs
Small swimbaits: you can't beat the Do it Ripper line
Fluke: Again, you can't beat Do it with the original or fork tail Wutz it
Drop shot: 4" fat finesse worm, 1015 from BassTackle, Minna from Angling AI, Small Carrot from Do It

There are a few other molds I have that I really love.  I've got some hand pour molds I use to make some drop shot baits that are absolutely killer I got from LureCraft years ago.  My advice would be to buy what you'll use most often.  Buying molds gets expensive quickly and if it's a bait you simply don't use that often you'd honestly be better off buying it off the shelf.
