If your first time out on the water didn’t produce a single fish, the cause may be your lure. Choosing the right fishing lure is dependent on fish size or species and water conditions. If you’re unsure what type of lure to use, we have complied a handy list explaining what you need to know.
Picking Your Lure
- Plastic Worms- When fishing for a largemouth bass use a plastic worm. It comes in serval sizes and colors so they are great for larger fish.
- Jigs- Jigs are versatile lures in that they can be used all- year round and in warm or cold water.
- Spoons- Spoons are the oldest lures and can be used for different species. They are designed to fish below the surface.
- Flies- If fishing for trout, use of flies are your best option. There are five different types: dry, wet, nymphs, streamers, and bugs. Each are designed to mimic the type of fly a trout will feed on.
- Color- Water conditions will affect the color of bait you choose. For a clear, sunny day choose bright lures. For dark, dirty water days, use darker lures.
