In this article Im going to list the best lures for bass fishing. The lures are being listed in no particular order as it would be impossible to say that one bass fishing lure is the "most effective". All of these lures are effective for bass fishing and if any of them arent a part of your bass fishing repertoire, they should be. These lures are definitely the best lures for bass fishing. When I use the term bass fishing Im referring mainly to the twp most popular species of bass, large and small mouth bass. All of the bass fishing lures listed in this article can be used for both species. The key is to use smaller versions of whichever lure you choose when fishing for smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass obviously have smaller mouths and therefore eat smaller prey than their large mouthed cousins.
Creek Chub was founded in 1910 by three friends in Garrett, Indiana. The company is named after the creek chub, which is a small fish commonly used for live bait by fishermen. Henry Dills created Creek Chubs first lure, The Wiggler, which had a metal lip that caused the lure to wiggle in the water leading more fish to strike it. Another early lure was the Pikie minnow. This bullet-shaped lure had more than one variation available, allowing for choices on the amount of movement in the water desired. The Open Mouth Weedless, later renamed the Open Mouth Shiner is another early lure. These lures were designed to be weed proof and featured long-shanked double hooks facing backwards so they would drag over snags without hanging on them. Open Mouth Weedless lures are a hard to find vintage fishing lure and all three of these are great examples of Creek Chub vintage fishing lures and collectors items.
2. Easy Ready to Go Painting Patterns. Did you know you can use your wifes or mothers used nylons to get some great patterns on your fishing lures without a lot of fuss. By using an airbrush you can take advantage of some of the patterns on used nylons to make some great subtle patterns on the sides of wooden fishing lures just make sure to use an old pair or you just may find yourself in the dog house if you use your wifes best Sunday nylons. 3. Always seal your wooden plugs before painting. This was something I didnt even know to do when I was a boy during my early fishing lure making attempts. It may sound like a small tip, but it goes a long way to making some nice fishing lures. Just use some wood sealer from your local home improvement store but here the crucial tip. After doing so sand down the fishing lure once more using very fine sandpaper, or even a brown paper bag. Wood sealers have a tendency to raise to raise the grain in wood, and this would result in an un-even paint job. It doesnt take a lot of time to do, but it helps to create a better looking fishing lure.
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.
