In this article Im going to list the best lures for bass fishing. The lures are being listed in no particular order as it would be impossible to say that one bass fishing lure is the "most effective". All of these lures are effective for bass fishing and if any of them arent a part of your bass fishing repertoire, they should be. These lures are definitely the best lures for bass fishing. When I use the term bass fishing Im referring mainly to the twp most popular species of bass, large and small mouth bass. All of the bass fishing lures listed in this article can be used for both species. The key is to use smaller versions of whichever lure you choose when fishing for smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass obviously have smaller mouths and therefore eat smaller prey than their large mouthed cousins.
Sinking lures. These are perfect lures for deep-water fishing, where you can establish a preferred depth where the trout will strike the lure. The preferred depth is established by a counting down prior to the retrieval process. The same depth can then be applied in other casts to locate the school of trout. The distance of the sunk down lure within a given time is known as the sinking rate of the lure, which suggest the depth or distance of the fish location. Soft baits. This type of lure is made of soft rubber and comes in a wide variety of forms and shapes, with attractive marching colors and sizes. It is suitable for saltwater and freshwater fishing. Soft baits can be used on weighted jig heads applied in the same way as the jerk bait providing a plug is used. Jerk baits. These are passive or still lures that do not move by it self but should be made alive by the angler. Motions are created by shaking or jerking the fishing rod, or any movements that make the bait look alive. As far as it can go, the jerking of the lure can imitate a wounded or injured fish which is quite tempting for the trout fish.
Arbogast Hula Popper - The Hula Popper has been around for more than sixty years, and many anglers swear by its pulsating skirt for attracting hungry predatory fish such as bass. This top water lure is deadly when "popped" over weed beds or submerged timber. This popular lure is one that every angler should have at their disposal. Rapala Fat Rap - This fishing lure is made from balsa wood and manufactured by Rapala, one of the most well respected names in the fishing lure game. When crank bait anglers encounter open water and weary fish, they can reach for their lightweight outfit and tie-on a Fat Rap. The tight swimming action of this balsa lure has been proven to be effective for many species of fish in various fishing situations.
In this article Im going to outline some of the best bass fishing lures that we as anglers have access to. These lures can be used to catch both large and smallmouth bass. As a general rule of thumb, the same fishing lures can be used for both species of bass the only difference being the size of the lure. Obviously as the name of the bass denote, when fishing for "small" mouth bass, smaller lures should be employed. Before we discuss the types of lures, its important to know some simple information about these fish. Both Large and smallmouth bass are part of the black bass family and the word "bass" comes from a word originally meaning perch. Both species are opportunistic eaters and voracious feeders.
