When it comes to bass fishing lures it can seem as if the choices are endless and this is with good reason. For the most part the choices are endless when it comes to bass fishing lures, but in this article I will outline 3 of the most effective fishing lures on the market today (when it comes to bass fishing), so that you can make sure that you have each one of them available to you the next time that you head out in search of bass.
I have spent the last twenty plus years fishing for the most popular species of freshwater fish and when it comes to bass fishing my experience is second to none. Bass are voracious predators and are susceptible to be caught on a variety of bass lures, from rubber worms and grubs to noisy buzz baits, and there is little doubt the following choices are 3 of the most effective lures that can be found on the market today when it comes to bass fishing.
- Balsa Wood Floating Minnow – Although plastic floating minnow plugs are less expensive than floating minnows made from balsa wood, the truth is that balsa wood lures have a much more realistic “action” in the water. These bass fishing lures are particularly effective when water temperatures are below 58 degrees. The action that balsa wood floating minnows create is unmatched by their molded plastic cousins and are a lure that every bass fisherman should have in his or her tackle box.
- Realistic Shad Imitations – In many lakes where bass are found a major food source is shad that are found in the lake that you are fishing. For this reason, realistic shad imitations are a must for every bass fisherman’s tackle box. When it comes to bass fishing lures that imitate shad, crank baits or soft plastics are the way to go and you should probably have both types of shad imitations available to you when you head out in search of bass.
- Spinnerbaits – Spinnerbaits can be fished by buzzing them back across the surface, slow rolling them along the bottom, or just simply reeling them in, but the bottom line is that they are one of the most effective fishing lures on the market when it comes to catching bass. These bass fishing lures can be fished at any time of the year with great success and enable you to cover a lot of water when fishing them. The bottom line is that bass will often readily bite a Spinnerbait.
The bottom line is that if you consider yourself a serious bass fisherman or woman, the aforementioned bass fishing lures need to be in your tackle box. If any of them aren’t they should be added sooner, rather than later. There is no doubt that these bass lures are 3 of the best fishing lures on the market when it comes to fishing for the beautiful fish known as bass.
