Top 4 Types Of Lure To Use For Bass Fishing

If you want to take up bass fishing this year, you need to make sure that you have the right type of lure in your tackle box. Here are the top four types of lures that you should carry with you if you want to be a successful bass fisher this year.

#1 Plastic Worms

Sometimes, the classic choice is really the best choice. You should always have a supply of plastic worms in your tackle box because they are not only classic, they are effective. Plastic worms do a good job emulating real worms and are a natural food choice for all types of fish, including bass.

For bass fish, you are going to want to stock up on Texas worm rigs. Other good types of plastic worms for bass fishing include Caroline, Wacky and Drop Shot worm rigs. 

When you use plastic worms, be sure to keep your line tight so you can feel if a bass nibbles or eats the worm so you can hook them and reel them in.

#2 Crankbaits

Crankbaits are great because they allow you to attract fish from within a large area in not a lot of time. When you fish for bass with crankbait, you are going to want to do a lot of casting and reeling. When the crankbait is in the water, you need to make sure you jerk the rod a bit. This will cause the crankbait to move around and potential attract the fish in the area.

The key is using crankbait is to figure out how deep in the water the bass in the area you are fishing like to hang out, and cast your line at that depth.

#3 Spinnerbaits

Spinnerbaits work really well at catching bass because they create a lot of light and movement under the water, which attracts bass fish. All the light that a spinnerbait creates allows you to attract bass that are within a fairly large radius from where you are casting your line. 

When fishing with a spinnerbait, you are going to want to cast and reel the line in a straight line. This is the best way to get the most movement out of the spinnerbait. As you reel the line you, you should occasionally pause for a few seconds. Doing this will allow the bait to sink and create fluttering motions under the water, which will help attract local bass to your line.

#4 Jigs

Finally, if you are a very skilled fisherman, you may want to try bass jibs. These are a very effective type of lure to catch bass fish with but require a higher level of skill to use. 

To use a jig, you need to be able to pick the right one. The right jig depends on where you are fishing as you want the jig you use to weight enough to sink to the bottom of the body of water where you are fishing and stay on the bottom. Jigs are designed to look like catfish, which live on the bottom of lakes and rivers. You have to really know the area you are fishing in order to fish with jigs.

Additionally, when you fish with jigs, you need to be skilled at flipping and pitching your reel; jigs are not designed for distance casting. This is a type of bait that you should use for bass when you are really comfortable with your reel and your location. 

Each of the four types of lures listed above will allow you to effectively catch bass fish and are all lures that you should keep in your tackle box. The type of lure that you use should depend on where you are fishing and your fishing skill level. To learn more, contact a company like CAROLINA FISHING TACKLE LLC.
