There may be plenty of fish in the sea, but they are bound to swim right by if the rod does not have the perfect lure. The colour, size, and design of the lure all play a part in landing the catch of the day, but finding the ideal bait can be a daunting task thanks to the abundance of lures on the market. While choosing tackle greatly depends upon the species and water conditions, there are certain lures that tend to snag more fish than others.
Mepps Aglia Spinner
The Mepps Aglia Spinner is ideally suited for freshwater fish, as well as a variety of different saltwater species. It features a plain treble design that includes a French blade that makes it more visible underwater by creating a constant vibration. The hooks are razor sharp with vibrant and flashy strike-attractor sleeves, while the stainless steel shaft of the lure provides extra durability. The Mepps Aglia is also available as a dressed treble, which is perfect for large saltwater fish.
Johnson Silver Minnow
The Johnson Silver Minnow fishing lure features a brass blade that is ideal for long angling casts. It offers plenty of flash when underwater, thanks to its pure silver or 24K gold plating. This bait claims to be the "Original Weedless Wonder", as its metal weed guard helps to not only catch more fish, but to keep the lure from catching on weeds and slop. It is available in a variety of colours, sizes, and lengths, making it easy to find the right Johnson Silver Minnow for virtually any species of fish.
Herb Reed's Slug-Go
Herb Reed's Slug-Go lure is the ideal addition to any fishing rod, thanks to its wide range of sizes and unique design. The design of the Slug-Go lure mimics the natural motions of prey when in the water, which draws in predatory fish that mistake the bait for an injured fish. Anglers can choose from seven different sizes and a variety of colours and patterns, ranging from lifelike lures to those that sport more colourful designs for easy visibility.
Storm WildEye Swim Shad
A WildEye Swim Shad by Storm features a soft and durable outer shell and weighted body, which helps the lure to mimic the motions of prey fish. It is available in a variety of different patterns and colours, all of which feature an I-Bolt holographic eye to add to its life-like appearance. A Storm WildEye Swim Shad lure comes in six different lengths, with the largest size sporting not one, but two rigged needle point hooks.
The Kastmaster boasts an innovative, aerodynamic design that produces the life-like action of prey, without twisting the fishing line and letting the daily catch slip away. It attracts a variety of different fish species, from small trout to salmon, in both freshwater and saltwater conditions. It features solid brass construction, which means that it is less likely to bend, crack, or corrode, even after extended use. Kastmaster lures are available in five sizes, with the largest ideally suited for big lakes, seas, and surfcasting.
The Luhr-Jensen Krocodile lure includes a realistic minnow design that attracts a variety of different species, both in fresh and salt water. It is available in an array of colours and sizes, making it hassle-free to choose the lure that attracts the right catch. Its anti-corrosive finish also makes it resistant to saltwater damage, and its sturdy construction helps to withstand extended wear and tear.
Rapala Skitter Pop Saltwater
The Rapala Skitter Pop Saltwater lure features a cupped lid design, a VMC Perma Steel mylar tail hook, and saltwater rigging, making it the perfect lure for sea anglers. When the Skitter Pop hits the water, it makes a loud popping sound and begins to mimic the real life movements of surface prey. Its stainless steel hooks and stainless steel finish also adds to its durability, and it comes in a wide range of natural baitfish patterns that draw in predatory fish with ease. The Rapala Skitter Pop is available for freshwater fish as well, which makes it a perfect match for greylings and bass.
