One of Creek Chubs most important innovations in the lure industry was the process of spray painting lures by spraying the paint through netting. Paint applied to this netting (originally from ladies hats!) was used to create the now common scale patterns on Creek Chub lures. Creek Chub was a very innovative company in other areas as well. Their early adoption of the use of glass eyes on lures and the invention of the weedless bait mentioned above are great examples of this spirit of innovation. Creek Chub also held numerous other patents related to lure improvements.
Spinners. A spinner includes a blade that can freely move on a spindle to create a spinning or turning motion when it is retrieved from the water. The spinning movement creates a flashing effect caused by light reflection on the turning blade. This resembles the glittering fish scales and motion. It also provides the possibility to change the rotating speed of the blade by speeding up or slowing down the retrieval of the spinner. Topwater lures. These kinds of lure are able to float on the surface of the water. Using this lure will create some excitement since you will be able to witness the trout fish taking down the lure. Providing the possibility to retrieve the lure on the water surface, top water lures are suitable choices for fishing in location with plenty of weeds.
One popular lure is the Panther Martin which is actually a spinner lure, and since it has a little spoon on it, it may be considered as a spoon lure as well. Now, before you choose the right lure, I recommend you to inspect the spot where you are about to fish. If the trout in that spot typically enjoys nymphs, you should use the nymph lure. Likewise, if the trouts prey is silver fish, then you should use the silver blade lure for maximum results. You should even check under rocks or sinking logs to look for whatever trout prey is hiding down there. Then you can select the appropriate lures that can perfectly blend in with its surrounding.
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.
