Pike jerkbaits are very popular among pike fishing enthusiasts because they are very effective for catching pike too. These pike fishing lures are made to look like a fish and must be reeled in with jerks and snaps. This is done by nibbing with the rod tip pointing up. Different types of jerkbaits are made for fishing in different depths of water. Jerkbaits are made to represent dying fish or a weakened fish trying to escape. Fishing with pike lures that are moving on or just under the surface of the water is exciting. Pike that are in relatively shallow areas are always aware of whats going on on the surface as prey in these areas are often very easy to catch, and predators are always looking for the easiest way to fill their stomachs. Because of this, different kinds of pike poppers, jerkbaits or other top water lures are great choices for surface fishing.
Today learning how to make fishing tackle doesnt have to be like back when I was boy. Even though there isnt a ton of information available the art of making fishing lures has come a long way to helping the beginner. The first step is having a basic knowledge of fishing tackle, design and function and knowing of what lure making supplies you really need. After that the fun can begin as you try your hand at making fishing lures. Here are a couple quick tips to help you out in making wooden fishing lures. 1. Most wooden lures in your tackle box are made of a few different types of wood. Balsa and Basswood are the most common woods used to make fishing lures. However you can make some really great fishing lures out of more common wood found in you local home improvement store. Cedar makes some great fishing lures and you can use both red and white cedar. I have had great success using both. They carve and shape fairly easily and due to the woods water resiliency finish up nicely.
A lure is something that tempts and entices, and a fishing lure is enticing and tempting to a fish. This description may apply to live baits, but we generally do not mean something live when talking about fishing lures. We mean something which acts as if it were alive, that appears alive, that creates, for the fish, an illusion. You might think that since fish have tiny brains, they are easily fooled into thinking a lure is a living, edible thing, but fish are one of the oldest creatures on earth with a past that has sharpened their instincts, their eyes, their ability to detect real from the fake when it comes to food. They have an innate memory of the way their prey moves through the water, the way it wiggles and squirms and moves its appendages, its natural form and face, its oils, its smell. To fool a fish with a lure is not as simple as you might think, but yet, with the correct combination of elements, the larger brain of man can create a lure that will not only fool a fish, but spark its appetite.
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.
