One of the first things a person new to the world of vintage fishing lure collecting will hear about are the so called "Big 5" companies that dominate the news about the pastime. Knowing who these companies are (or were) and a little bit about them will go a long way towards alleviating any fears of someone new to the hobby who is feeling intimidated by all of the information available online. The Heddon Company was created by James Heddon, the man who is given credit for the invention of the first artificial wood fishing lures in 1894. The often repeated story is that he had his light bulb moment when he tossed a hand carved wood plug into the waters of the Dowagiac, Michigan mill pond and watched as a bass struck it. With this insight an industry was born. The original lures were frogs hand carved from broomsticks by Heddon himself. The lures were originally made by hand in the Heddon family kitchen located in Dowagiac, Michigan, but by 1910 there was a new factory in Dowagiac and expanding sales.
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.
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...
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.
