A lure is something that tempts and entices, and a fishing lure is enticing and tempting to a fish. This description may apply to live baits, but we generally do not mean something live when talking about fishing lures. We mean something which acts as if it were alive, that appears alive, that creates, for the fish, an illusion. You might think that since fish have tiny brains, they are easily fooled into thinking a lure is a living, edible thing, but fish are one of the oldest creatures on earth with a past that has sharpened their instincts, their eyes, their ability to detect real from the fake when it comes to food. They have an innate memory of the way their prey moves through the water, the way it wiggles and squirms and moves its appendages, its natural form and face, its oils, its smell. To fool a fish with a lure is not as simple as you might think, but yet, with the correct combination of elements, the larger brain of man can create a lure that will not only fool a fish, but spark its appetite.
The Flutter Bug Spinner is also a weighted lure with the same type and size of blade as the magnum spinner. But the weight bodies are brass painted, so it gives a darker impression. The darker lure colors are good for clear water fishing, while the brighter colors are good for night fishing. Another popular lure is the spoon lure which is imitating a small bait fish instead of a fly. The well known Little Cleo is a fantastic trout fishing spoon lure. The water vibration creates the natural movement of the imitated bait fish. Spoon lures are available in two major colors, gold and silver, although there are other color selections which I do not recommend
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.
William Shakespeare, Jr. founded his company in 1897 with a first product that wasnt a fishing lure. He started out with reels before expanding into the lure market. Shakespeare began making fishing lures around 1900 and the first catalog was issued shortly after that containing only four lures: the Revolution, Bucktail, Evolution and a Frog. The Shakespeare Revolution is one of the most collectible of the Shakespeare vintage fishing lures. Many of Shakespeares early products were rubber lures, including rubber frogs that mimicked real life motions of a frog when in the water. A very rare collectors item is the Shakespeare Tournament Casting Frog, which is a prize find for any vintage Shakespeare fishing lure enthusiast.
