Arbogast Hula Popper - The Hula Popper has been around for more than sixty years, and many anglers swear by its pulsating skirt for attracting hungry predatory fish such as bass. This top water lure is deadly when "popped" over weed beds or submerged timber. This popular lure is one that every angler should have at their disposal. Rapala Fat Rap - This fishing lure is made from balsa wood and manufactured by Rapala, one of the most well respected names in the fishing lure game. When crank bait anglers encounter open water and weary fish, they can reach for their lightweight outfit and tie-on a Fat Rap. The tight swimming action of this balsa lure has been proven to be effective for many species of fish in various fishing situations.
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.
You might come across someone who asks you what you prefer to use when going trout fishing: natural bait or lures? Of course, we all know what natural bait is... but lures? "What are those?" you ask. Well, worry no more because after you finish reading this article, you will be quipped with sufficient knowledge about trout fishing lures. First of all, lures are designed to imitate not only the appearance, but also the movement of the prey of fish. They come in many different colors, sizes and designs, and this is important because a specific kind of fish may prefer specific prey, so the lure you use must be similar to the said specific prey. For example, if a trout you want to catch typically eats minnows, then choose a lure that looks like one.
Another popular trout fishing lure is the mini-stick bait. They are designed to resemble minnows, which are small fish that are natural prey for trout. Trout may also look at mini-stick baits as fingerlings, which are baby trout that the adults may also eat. Gasp! Yes, such a shocker, but adult trout do sometimes eat their young. Remember that when going trout fishing, always bring many kinds of lures with you. Bringing a single lure that you think will be effective will not give you positive results. Always try out different types of lures with you because you will never know which one will bring you the most success in catching a beautiful trout. So weve tackled the basics about trout fishing lures! Go out and try using them, compare them with each other and with live bait, and decide which one you prefer the most... and the next time someone asks you about your preference between lures and natural bait, youll definitely have an answer.
