If You Can Cast Them Out – They Will Come.
Or you will catch the fish. Or you hope you will catch the fish. We all know how that goes.
Every Angler has their favorite lures and wouldn’t leave the house without them. When the fish aren’t biting as hoped these lures are always tied on the line, to turn the day from fishing to catching.
Growing up my fathers tackle box always had a Dardevle spoon, the red and white metal catching your eye as the box was opened. And my box has that same spoon. I smile every time I see it. Remembering our past fishing trips.
I came across this amazing article. It’s great and very helpful. They go right into colors, size and technique.
Check it out. Tells us your favorite Lures.
Mike Iaconelli’s lure inventory matches his personality—wide-ranging and colorful. Yet, when asked what two lures he thinks anybody can catch a bass on, it didn’t take but seconds to pinpoint the answer.
“A grub and a spinnerbait,” says Ike.
If obligated to choose just one particular grub, Iaconelli goes with a 4-inch Berkley single-tail Power Grub on a ¼-ounce jig head. If reeling it through the middle of the water column to imitate baitfish, he says smoke is a great color. If hopping it along the bottom where crawfish live, green pumpkin is the winner. He ties both to 8-pound line, and prefers a spinning reel versus a baitcasting reel.
Shades of chartreuse and white win when it comes to spinnerbait colors, and ¼ or 3/8 ounce models are hugely popular. A ¼ ounce on 10-pound line would be best matched to those who prefer spinning tackle, while tying a 3/8-ounce version to 15-pound line is best for folks who favor baitcasting.
