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...
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.
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.
In most cases these lures are made to imitate bait fish and are fished in a variety of manners. An important thing to remember about crank baits is the more realistic the look in the water, the more effective they will be. Rapala and Bagley make very realistic crank baits that work for both species of bass. One of the most realistic and effective of the bass fishing lures on the market today is the KickTail Minnow. This lure looks as much like a live baitfish as any bass lure that Ive ever seen. Top Water Lures - Top water lures are very effective when fishing for either species of bass, especially in the early morning or late evening. One of the keys to fishing top water lures is for the water to be as flat as possible. The more the water is like glass, the better luck you will have when fishing top water lures. Some great choices are the Jitterbug and the Pop-R. Fishing for bass with top water lures is a ton of fun and as exciting as fishing gets.
