Shawna Farrell Fishing Lure December 27th, 2017 - 11:42:17
The Flutter Bug Spinner is also a weighted lure with the same type and size of blade as the magnum spinner. But the weight bodies are brass painted, so it gives a darker impression. The darker lure colors are good for clear water fishing, while the brighter colors are good for night fishing. Another popular lure is the spoon lure which is imitating a small bait fish instead of a fly. The well known Little Cleo is a fantastic trout fishing spoon lure. The water vibration creates the natural movement of the imitated bait fish. Spoon lures are available in two major colors, gold and silver, although there are other color selections which I do not recommend
Spinners imitate prey fish and attract pike by sending visual impressions and vibrating signals to the pike since they are sensitive to all kind of vibrations in the water. These northern pike lures are often used by new and young sport fishermen and are a good choice because they usually attract several types of predator fish as perch, pike, bass and walleye. In the wintertime all fish eat very little and their metabolism is slow. They do not grow at all and therefore their appetite is very poor but they do eat sometimes and anglers usually catch them with dead bait or many kinds of pike jigs. Ice fishing can be a test of patience and often you dont see many fish under the ice , but it can be very rewarding as well.
It is a fact that pike eat large amounts of ducklings or frogs each year, so the combination of small birds, frogs, small mammals and dying or injured fish on the waters surface triggers ambushes from these predators. Todays top water lures are developed to imitate this group of prey both in looks and in movement. Another fun and exciting aspect of this kind of fishing is that a reaction from a pike is very visible. Often you will feel a powerful pull on the line combined with a huge splash that tears you out of your quiet relaxing state and the adrenaline rushes instantly into your veins. Personally, this is my favourite way to fish. Large buzzbaits or Spook are excellent top water lures for pike.
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.
