Top Water Fishing Lures - Top water fishing lures are just what the name suggests...fishing lures that are fished on the surface, or top, of the water. These fishing lures can imitate wounded bait fish, frogs, or even small mammals. Ive always had success with frog imitation poppers and minnow imitation top water plugs such as the Zara Spook. A great tip for fishing top water lures is to do it when the water is as calm as possible, the more the surface of the water is like glass, the better top water fishing lures will work. Spinners & Spoons - Im grouping spinners and spoons together because I believe they are in the some family. The both imitate baitfish (for the most part) and can both be quite effective as fishing lures. The two most popular versions of spinner and spoons are probably Rooster Tails for spinners and Daredevils for spoons. A daredevil spoon in the colors red and white have long been known as a great pike bait. Rooster Tails are wonderful for trout and smallmouth bass fishing. Are spinners and spoons the best fishing lure? Thats for you to decide...
I recall when we were kids we axed large holes in the ice in shallow areas and we laid on isolating plates with covers over the head. This way we could see everything down there, and it was amazing. We saw lots of different fish pass by, some sniffing the bait but moving on, while some took the bait. We often saw large pike sniffing and studying our pike fishing lures before they moved on, but we caught some of those too. I highly recommend this as this is another exiting aspect to type of fishing. Pike ice fishing jigs are a good choice and swimming jigs are most effective in my opinion. I recommend jigging rapala or jigging shad rap. Jigging spoons are also good. Bomber or Dick Nite make great pike lures.
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. Bass are found throughout the world, and are a very popular game fish in the United States.
William Shakespeare, Jr. founded his company in 1897 with a first product that wasnt a fishing lure. He started out with reels before expanding into the lure market. Shakespeare began making fishing lures around 1900 and the first catalog was issued shortly after that containing only four lures: the Revolution, Bucktail, Evolution and a Frog. The Shakespeare Revolution is one of the most collectible of the Shakespeare vintage fishing lures. Many of Shakespeares early products were rubber lures, including rubber frogs that mimicked real life motions of a frog when in the water. A very rare collectors item is the Shakespeare Tournament Casting Frog, which is a prize find for any vintage Shakespeare fishing lure enthusiast.
