Four Basic Principles Of Choosing Lure Fishing Baits According To The Target Fish

The bait is a very important part of lure fishing, and it can even determine the size and how much fish you catch. We all know that Lure bait is mainly divided into hard bait and soft bait. The hard bait includes Crank, pencil, VIB, Minow, Poper, Spoon and Jig head and so on. Soft baits are divided into worm, grub, craw, tube, noddle, lizard, trailer etc,.

lure fishing can really bring a lot of fun to fishing enthusiasts, but at the same time it will inevitably bring trouble to them. For example, picking and choosing bait may be something that fishing enthusiasts often worry about in lure fishing.


We all know that the characteristics and advantages of different baits are different. The attraction is not the same for different target fish. Therefore, we pay so much attention to these principles of selecting bait according to the target fish. If these principles are not used correctly in practice, it will be difficult to gain in the fishing process.


Below we summarize some of the things that need special attention when selecting bait. I hope it will help you better understand the bait and know how to properly pick the bait.


1. Select the bait according to the size of the fish.


This is a very simple truth. If you want to catch big fish, choose a large bait. If you want to catch small fish, choose a small bait. Because we have also discussed the problem of fish chasing bait without biting. One of the reasons is that because the bait is bigger than the fish, the fish have no confidence to prey. But in addition to the size of the fish and the bait, there is one more thing to note, that is, pay attention to the size of the fish opening


2. Select the bait for different trajectories according to the characteristics of the fish


After the bait is put into the water, there is a corresponding swimming trajectory.However, different people's different methods of operation will show different changes in the swimming style of the lure. We have previously said that some novices cannot fully reflect the vivid swimming strokes of the bait due to their unfamiliarity with the bait. In fact, Lure swimming is divided into vertical swimming, lateral swimming, suspension and other methods. The choice of the trajectory of the lure also needs to look at the characteristics of the target fish. If the activity of the target fish is high, the bait that swims in the longitudinal and lateral directions is used. If the target fish has low activity, the suspension stays well and the bait is long.


3. Select the bait for different strokes according to the characteristics of the fish.

In addition to different swimming trajectories, the bait has a variety of strokes. Minor, sequins, wave climbing, pencils and other hard baits and worms, crawl, grub have a corresponding stroke. Choosing Lure's bait swimming course also depends on the characteristics of the fish. Is it the same as the selection of the swimming trajectory according to the bait? The swimming stroke is also selected according to the activity of the fish. High-activity fish can choose more swimming styles, such as vocal, multi-rotating, aggressive, etc., and low-activity fish use the bait of monotonous swimming.

4. Select fast or slow bait according to the characteristics of the fish.

Lure bait has a fast bait and slow bait. Generally, the hard bait swims faster, and the soft bait swims slowly. The fast bait is aimed at the highly active, fragile fish. Because the faster the swimming speed of the bait, the more predatory they are, the target fish of the slow bait is the fish with low activity but also small fish.


All in all, whether it is soft bait or hard bait, minow or pencil, worm or grub has their target fish. As a Lure fan, we have to choose different baits according to different situations before fishing to get the most fishing fun.

In addition, we would like to say a different topic. It is with the rapid development of the current economy that more and more pollutants flow into rivers and lakes. As a Lure who follows the laws of nature, should it also choose relatively environmentally friendly fishing gear during the fishing?For example, when choosing a hard bait, choose a material that is easy to explain, and choose a hard bait whose weight is tungsten instead of lead. When choosing a fish sinker, can you choose copper or tungsten material?Because even if they are unfortunately left behind on water bottom, they will not threaten the survival of aquatic creatures.
