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.
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.
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
Plastic Worms & Grubs - Plastic worms have long been known as a great lure for fishing. Plastic worms can be rigged in a variety of manners such as the Carolina rig and the Texas rig. Plastic worms are most effective for largemouth bass. Plastic grubs are normally rigged on a lead head jig. Grubs are normally thought of as smallmouth bass bait. A great breakthrough in the plastic grub and worm market are Berkleys Gulp and Power products. These products are just like the plastics that youre used to except for the fact that the have been impregnated with fish attractants. Gulp grubs and worms are extremely effective lures for bass fishing. Crank Baits - Crank baits are extremely and versatile bass lures.
