Sinking lures. These are perfect lures for deep-water fishing, where you can establish a preferred depth where the trout will strike the lure. The preferred depth is established by a counting down prior to the retrieval process. The same depth can then be applied in other casts to locate the school of trout. The distance of the sunk down lure within a given time is known as the sinking rate of the lure, which suggest the depth or distance of the fish location. Soft baits. This type of lure is made of soft rubber and comes in a wide variety of forms and shapes, with attractive marching colors and sizes. It is suitable for saltwater and freshwater fishing. Soft baits can be used on weighted jig heads applied in the same way as the jerk bait providing a plug is used. Jerk baits. These are passive or still lures that do not move by it self but should be made alive by the angler. Motions are created by shaking or jerking the fishing rod, or any movements that make the bait look alive. As far as it can go, the jerking of the lure can imitate a wounded or injured fish which is quite tempting for the trout fish.
Suspending lures. These kinds of lure provide neutral floating effect hence it will neither sink or rise. When it is placed at a certain depth it will remain at that level of depth. This makes it most suitable for chasing hidden trout close to the weed beds, rocky stones or banks. Floating lures. Unlike the top-water lures that float on the surface, these floating lures float just beneath the water surface and is able to float to a depth of more than fifteen feet. The diving depth is determined from the fin point of view to the lure body. The smaller the angle to the lure body, the deeper its able to dive. The movement of the floating lure is also affected by the shape and size of vane and lure body. Floating lures are considered as a "must to bring along" for all lure anglers.
Fly fishing for pike has become very popular and pike seem to like both poppers and large colorful and flashy flies. This type of fishing can be done from spring to autumn in relatively shallow areas. Northern flies are very effective during the spring when the water is cold and the pike are slow. Pike flies can easily be presented slowly to trigger attacks from pike. When the water is warmer and the pike hide in the weeds, it is time to use poppers. Poppers are "flies" with a bit of floating material which will dive under the surface when you pull the line. When stopped, the popper will pop up and make waves and lively movements. This is irresistible to pikes and an ambush will soon be under way when a pike spots the popper. Haggerty lures has numerous northern flies for sale and I recommend purchasing several of those if you are new to northern fly fishing.
Spinners imitate prey fish and attract pike by sending visual impressions and vibrating signals to the pike since they are sensitive to all kind of vibrations in the water. These northern pike lures are often used by new and young sport fishermen and are a good choice because they usually attract several types of predator fish as perch, pike, bass and walleye. In the wintertime all fish eat very little and their metabolism is slow. They do not grow at all and therefore their appetite is very poor but they do eat sometimes and anglers usually catch them with dead bait or many kinds of pike jigs. Ice fishing can be a test of patience and often you dont see many fish under the ice , but it can be very rewarding as well.
