Jersey’s winter flounder season just opened on March 1st, and if its anything like last spring, we could be in for a heck of a spring fishery. Flounder poundin is a light tackle affair, but you can up your odds to catch more… Read More
Artificial bait or fishing lures have been used to catch fish for thousands of years. Made from a wide variety of materials, colors, sizes, and styles, lures are used to attract fish and convince them to bite into the attached hook. If you want to fish with lures, you need to know the most common lure techniques and how you can use them to catch a fish.

Take largemouth bass, for example. In his book Knowing Bass, Dr. Keith Jones, who has studied bass senses for decades, notes, “Their color vision is strongest in the areas of medium-red to green. It fails rapidly moving into the blues and purples, as it does toward the far reds. These color extremes are seen as lighter or darker shades of gray or black. Very pale colors of any shade are likely seen as simply light-colored, whereas dark reds, greens, blues and purples are interpreted as simply dark.”
Movement – Detecting movement is one of the primary ways a fish hunts for its dinner. This is why lure fishing is so effective. In many instances, a fish recognizes its food simply by the way it moves. If you learn to make your lure dance just right, it will become irresistible to fish.

In-line spinners and crankbaits are the basic hardbody lures that represent little fish. With these lures, you’ll catch hatchery fish, but you’ll also catch mature fish that have grown large enough that they’ve acquired a taste for other fish and have started hunting rather than simply grazing on insects. You may occasionally find trout waters that do not have a sufficient population of aquatic insects to support the resident trout, other than teeny tiny “no see ums.” In this case, trout will often take up a role higher up the food chain. The little fish eat the itty bitty bugs, and the trout focus on eating the little fish. These streams can be very frustrating for fly fishermen. Lure fishing these waters, however, can be an absolute blast.
Regulations may limit the size of, number of, and season that a type of fish may be caught, and may require a license to fish. In some cases, only “catch and release” fishing is allowed, which means the fish must be let go. Some bait is illegal in certain areas.
The option of having full fingered gloves is the fact that you know all of your fingers will be protected from both the sun, as well as other items which could cut your fingers, including teeth, gills, scales and other errant hooks. Once again, it all depends upon what kind of fish you typically fish for, and knowing what the chances are that you will be cut from a fish. Due to the fact that you only need fishing gloves if you are fishing for larger fish, there is more of a chance that you will get cut from this kind of fish, as there is more body to hold, and more of a wiggling factor.
Find a place where deep water meets shallow water. Most fish big enough to catch will spend most of the day in deeper water and come into the shallows to feed. They won’t spend much time swimming around shallow water, however, so you’ll want to find the places they’ll come up for quick food sorties before darting away.
Michael Ernst is a diehard fishing transplant from Minnesota. He grew up guiding for muskies from a Ranger Z20 Comanche and now plies the rivers and reservoirs of Tennessee in his Jackson Big Tuna kayak for everything from muskies and stripers to crappies and trout. “In all my years of guiding from my Ranger,” Ernst says, “I was never able to spot a big muskie, target it with a lure, and make it bite. They can see you or are affected by the vibration of the trolling motor, and your odds of connecting with a trophy fish are reduced. But I‘ve often spotted muskies in clear Tennessee rivers, paddled close enough to make a good cast, and watched the fish eat the lure. The paddle strokes associated with a kayak seem like a natural splashing sound to fish that doesn’t register as threatening. They continue their feeding routine, even though you’re only a couple yards away.”

Første og eneste “smutter” fra deres side. Der manglede en enkelt ting, da jeg modtog en pakke. Sendte dem en mail, og 1 time senere blev jeg ringet op. Fik en stor undskyldning, og næste morgen blev …det leveret hjemme hos mig selv, incl. lidt ekstra, som plaster på såret 🙂
Aberdeen hooks are composed of a lighter wire than Siwash hooks and are often used for bait fishing. The thin metal easily hooks bait with minimal damage so it stays lively. Light wire also makes them a good option when fishing timber for crappie. When snagged, you can sometimes bend the hook and pull it free with a bit of pressure. The Eagle Claw Cricket Aberdeen hook is a top rated hook on BassPro.com.
As mentioned before, fish are attracted to differences in their environment. If your retrieve doesn’t change, fish will start to ignore it. Something as simple as a slight pause or a little tug can evoke a sharp attack if the moment is right!
There are a large number of different types of fish hooks. At the macro level, there are bait hooks, fly hooks and lure hooks. Within these broad categories there are wide varieties of hook types designed for different applications. Hook types differ in shape, materials, points and barbs, and eye type and ultimately in their intended application. When individual hook types are designed the specific characteristics of each of these hook components are optimized relative to the hook’s intended purpose. For example, a delicate dry fly hook is made of thin wire with a tapered eye because weight is the overriding factor. Whereas Carlisle or Aberdeen light wire bait hooks make use of thin wire to reduce injury to live bait but the eyes are not tapered because weight is not an issue. Many factors contribute to hook design, including corrosion resistance, weight, strength, hooking efficiency, and whether the hook is being used for specific types of bait, on different types of lures or for different styles of flies. For each hook type, there are ranges of acceptable sizes. For all types of hooks, sizes range from 32 (the smallest) to 20/0 (the largest).
The outer glove and the index finger area is made of super sturdy Armortex which makes it easy to catch big fishes. The tacky grip and the nylon palm which is meshed increases tackiness for ease of fishing in the ice.

If you’re going fishing in a boat, bring the necessary gear to be on the water. Life vests and a boating license are required. If you’re going to be on shore, you might want to bring a lawn chair and some waders to keep your feed dry.

Point: This is the business end of the hook. In recent years manufacturers have been in a race to develop the “newest and best” point. Whether chisel, trocar, needle, knife edge or rolled–they must be sharp to land the big ones. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
