How to make fishing lures is one of those hobbies that is extremely fun to learn and very satisfying. Theres no feeling that can describe catching your first bass or trout on a fishing lure that you made all by yourself. The problem is there isnt a lot of information out there in learning how to make fishing lures. Most people start off in the hobby through a lot of trial and error. I was no exception to this. Back when I was a boy I used to marvel at all the fishing and experience for a 12 year old boy, trying to carve out fishing lures out of your moms lures in my tackle box and wonder at how fishing lures were made. My first few early attempts at making fishing tackle didnt quite turn out. In fact the results were down right hilarious. Back then there wasnt hardly any information about how to make fishing lures at all, so everything had to be learned through experience broom sticks and painting them with your car modeling testor paints. I still remember running down to the water with my first fishing lure that I had made. It didnt wobble, I think the paint job only lasted a few minutes before starting to peel and hang off my lure like wet noodles. But it sure was a lot of fun.
In this article Im going to outline some of the best bass fishing lures that we as anglers have access to. These lures can be used to catch both large and smallmouth bass. As a general rule of thumb, the same fishing lures can be used for both species of bass the only difference being the size of the lure. Obviously as the name of the bass denote, when fishing for "small" mouth bass, smaller lures should be employed. Before we discuss the types of lures, its important to know some simple information about these fish. Both Large and smallmouth bass are part of the black bass family and the word "bass" comes from a word originally meaning perch. Both species are opportunistic eaters and voracious feeders. Bass are found throughout the world, and are a very popular game fish in the United States.
Ernest F. Pflueger founded the Enterprise Manufacturing Company in 1881 making fish hooks. When his son took over the business in 1906, it changed names to the E.A. Pflueger Company. During this time, Pflueger was the first company to open up commercial production of wooden fishing lures. The company would also grow from being only a hook maker to all areas of fishing gear. As competition in the industry became more fierce the company began to focus more on reels than lures. Two of the lures that the company started with were the Flying Helgramite and the Luminous Crystal Minnow lure. These are two very vintage fishing lures from Pflueger that incorporate the founding E. Pfluegers invention of a luminous lure paint.
Worden had already been selling his Bucktail baits since 1894 prior to the official company founding. These bucktail baits were wooden minnow shaped lures that were invented and popularized by Worden. The South Bend Bait Company also made the famous Oreno fishing lures. The Oreno was also a minnow shaped lure and would become a popular long term seller for South Bend. The Bass Oreno, which started production around 1915 and was still in production into the mid 1960s, was the most popular South Bend bait. Another popular vintage South Bend lure is The Vacuum Bait which can be quite hard to find and is a nice collectors item.
