You’re On A New Lake…What lure do you choose?
How To Choose Your Lure………..It’s Not Just Luck
Have you ever gone fishing and spent the entire day or hours fishing for nothing? The obvious next step is to begin looking through your tackle boxes and tossing everything you come across.
That is a serious error because it is likely that you will encounter the same outcome as the rest of the day.
So What Do You Use?
You could, however, attempt a larger-sized bait.
Try an 8–10 inch worm instead of the 4-6 inch worm you have been using. Why? Because stubborn bass prefer a slower falling lure that falls more slowly.
Of course, there are a few other factors to take into account as well, such as the lake’s natural prey, such as baitfish and crawfish, the time of year, and the structure. Try a light-colored bait in clear water, smaller lures in the early spring, and larger lures as summer approaches.
Try crankbaits or spinnerbaits when it’s windy or shady. Try a worm or jig if the sun is shining since the bass will be near to cover. Try a larger lure and fish in shallower water if the fishing area is murky. Fish a little deeper where the fish are less influenced by the weather if the fish aren’t biting in the shallow water.
Start out by using a crankbait, a spinnerbait, and a plastic worm as lures.
