The purpose of a fishing lure is to attract fish, but it’s not that simple – fishermen choose their lures based on preference, experience, type of fish they want to catch, location, and more.
What Are the Types of Fishing Lures?
Fishing lures are available in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, and types. Not all fishing lures are created equal and they each perform a certain way based on how they’re designed. The most common types of fishing lures are spoons, spinners, jibs, and soft plastic baits. Just about all fishing lures are made to resemble live bait in movement and appearance.
Fishing lures tend to come in extremely bright colors, but there are some that look more naturally-colored. Certain lures make a sound so that fish in murky water can locate the bait. The type of fish you want to catch and the fishing conditions will determine the correct lure to use. For example, spoons are best in areas with a lot of vegetation.
How Do Fishing Lures Work?
Lures are made to work either with or against the water. It’s impossible to see how a fishing lure is intended to work without putting it in the water. Once the lure is submerged, you can move the line to see how it works. Some lures will displace water while others (like those made from feathers) will more freely.
