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.
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.
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.
I recall when we were kids we axed large holes in the ice in shallow areas and we laid on isolating plates with covers over the head. This way we could see everything down there, and it was amazing. We saw lots of different fish pass by, some sniffing the bait but moving on, while some took the bait. We often saw large pike sniffing and studying our pike fishing lures before they moved on, but we caught some of those too. I highly recommend this as this is another exiting aspect to type of fishing. Pike ice fishing jigs are a good choice and swimming jigs are most effective in my opinion. I recommend jigging rapala or jigging shad rap. Jigging spoons are also good. Bomber or Dick Nite make great pike lures.
