Which Freshwater Lure is the Right Choice?


Successful fishing depends on the fundamental fact that the lure plays a pivotal role. If you’re having difficulty figuring out which lure to use in a certain situation then follow these steps for the best success.The most effective fisherman is an informed fisherman, so first thing you would want to do is match the lure to fish. There are about 6 categories of fishing lures that we will look into:

-Spinner baits
-Jigs
-Plastic Worms
-Spoons
-Crank baits
-Flies

Spinner baits can be fished with a slow or rapid retrieval across the surface. They have propellers/blades that flash and splash, luring interested prey.

You can dance a jig around a jig bait. These lures have a hook and weighted head. They are normally retrieved in an up and down motion and can be fished in warm or cold water situations and are great for catching walleyes. They are light and small enough for fish to bite while still heavy enough to stay near the sweet spots at the bottom.

The plastic worm attraction is mainly a large-mouth bass fascination. They measure in length 4-10 inches, come in a plethora or colors and are so consistently effective that the concept has spawned a number of other soft plastic artificial lures into production including grubs, crayfish, and salamanders. This lure is good for surface fishing, in/near timber, brush, weeds and along rock drop-offs.

Spooning the paraphyletic is one of the oldest lures around and is an excellent way to draw fish to you. Spoon baits resemblance to the bowl of a spoon causes spoons to wobble from side to side as they are retrieved, which is what fish like.

Crank baits or plugs are made of hard plastic and are designed to be cast out and retrieved. They come several varieties: top water is specifically for surface fishing: poppers, wobblers, stick baits. Thin minnows are colored like minnows. Swimming crank baits and diving lures are common crank baits that enable deeper diving.

Flies are generally an annoyance, but not when you’re perched on the bank for the long haul. Fly lures are a big assist when fishing for trout. The are categorized in specifics to help you zero in on your search and conquer: dry, wet, nymphs and bugs are to name a few.

Get familiar with your prey and snag a bite today. Dress your hook for the part, make it relatively attractive to the fish and you will no doubt become a more relatively attractive fisherman to friends and family (i.e., hungry villagers).

10 “little things” for some big fishing results this season.

#1 – Back a Boat Trailer
Place your hand at the bottom of the steering wheel. While watching the mirrors, move your hand in the direction you want the trailer to go. Move (don’t turn) the wheel in increments.

#2 – Anchor a Boat
With the anchor line attached to the boat, and an anchor sized and configured correctly for your vessel, gently lower the anchor over the bow with the boat facing into the wind or current. Never throw an anchor; the line may foul.

#3 – Prevent Bird’s Nests
The automatic bail on your spinning reel is a cool innovation, but it should be used sparingly. Automatic bails put undue twist in fishing line, which can eventually cause bird’s nests. It’s best to flip the bail manually.

#4 – Pick a Spinnerbait Blade
When the water is murky, a Colorado blade provides the best vibration and attracts more fish. In weed-choked areas, willow-leaf blades, with their narrow design, slip through vegetation easier and with fewer snags.

#5 – Learn The King Sling knot
Run 8 to 10 inches of the tag end of the line through the bait’s eye. Hold the tag end and main line in your left hand to form a loop. Make four turns around the tag end with the bait in your right hand and the standing line above the loop. Slip the bait through the loop. Tighten.

#6 – Tune a Crankbait
If your bait runs to the right, gently bend the line-tie eye to the right with a pair of pliers. If it runs to the left, bend the eye gently to the left. It doesn’t take much to correct the problem, so bend the eye very little.

#7 – Spool a Baitcaster
With the line tied to the reel spool, lay the filler spool on its side in the box. Make sure the filler spool is parallel to your reel’s spool. Reel until full. With spinning reels, load line onto the reel spool in the same direction the line leaves the filler spool.

#8 – Fish a Trailer
If you’re fishing a bait with a trailer and getting plenty of strikes but not hooking up, try this: Remove the trailer from the hook. Reaffix it by hooking it through the head. Do not run the trailer down the hook shank. You now have more hook shank to hook the fish with.

#9 – Handle a Fish
Catch-and-release is great. However, if you damage your fish prior to releasing it, it’s all for naught. Never hold a fish out flat by the lower jaw, as most bass jocks do. This puts undue strain on the fish’s skeletal structure. Instead, support its weight with both hands.

#10 – Hold a Reel Right
When spin-fishing, place your entire rod hand in front of the reel’s stem. This gives you a mechanical advantage on the rod. And at day’s end, your hand won’t ache from having had a reel’s stem jammed between your fingers.

Bass fishing tip of the day

A drop-shot is best suited for clear water, Choose colors that blend in with the environment and imitate local forage. Fish a drop shot rig by dragging the weight slowly on the bottom. If you feel the weight snag just shake the rod tip to free it. Keeping the bait in the strike zone with a natural presentation of struggling forage. Shake the rod just enough to quiver the bait. A strike will feel like the weight has snagged. If you feel any kind of resistance, it don’t cost anything toset the hook!
