Another popular trout fishing lure is the mini-stick bait. They are designed to resemble minnows, which are small fish that are natural prey for trout. Trout may also look at mini-stick baits as fingerlings, which are baby trout that the adults may also eat. Gasp! Yes, such a shocker, but adult trout do sometimes eat their young. Remember that when going trout fishing, always bring many kinds of lures with you. Bringing a single lure that you think will be effective will not give you positive results. Always try out different types of lures with you because you will never know which one will bring you the most success in catching a beautiful trout. So weve tackled the basics about trout fishing lures! Go out and try using them, compare them with each other and with live bait, and decide which one you prefer the most... and the next time someone asks you about your preference between lures and natural bait, youll definitely have an answer.
Once you know the various preys, their appearance and behaviors, you can create your own lures with materials easily obtained from sports or hardware stores or even from your junk drawer. You can even make your lures out of such common material as corks, buttons, odorless paints, plastic beads, propellers, rubber shags, and, of course, fishing hooks. Many fishermen avoid commercial fishing lures altogether. They look at fishing as an intricate art calling for their own intelligence and creativeness, for their own innate hunting skills which, like the fish, has a deep history, perhaps as old as a 100,000 years. One thing is certain when using fishing lures youve created yourself: youll feel the maximum joy possible when you get that first bite on a lure youve crafted yourself. Somehow, that fish will taste just a little bit better than all the others youve caught. Man over nature, with your own lure, it a seasoning like no other, aged a 100,000 years in the heart of man.
You might come across someone who asks you what you prefer to use when going trout fishing: natural bait or lures? Of course, we all know what natural bait is... but lures? "What are those?" you ask. Well, worry no more because after you finish reading this article, you will be quipped with sufficient knowledge about trout fishing lures. First of all, lures are designed to imitate not only the appearance, but also the movement of the prey of fish. They come in many different colors, sizes and designs, and this is important because a specific kind of fish may prefer specific prey, so the lure you use must be similar to the said specific prey. For example, if a trout you want to catch typically eats minnows, then choose a lure that looks like one.
Spinners. A spinner includes a blade that can freely move on a spindle to create a spinning or turning motion when it is retrieved from the water. The spinning movement creates a flashing effect caused by light reflection on the turning blade. This resembles the glittering fish scales and motion. It also provides the possibility to change the rotating speed of the blade by speeding up or slowing down the retrieval of the spinner. Topwater lures. These kinds of lure are able to float on the surface of the water. Using this lure will create some excitement since you will be able to witness the trout fish taking down the lure. Providing the possibility to retrieve the lure on the water surface, top water lures are suitable choices for fishing in location with plenty of weeds.
