Best Saltwater Fishing Lures

Updated on July 5, 2011

Lures For Catching Saltwater Fish

Saltwater fishing lures come in many shapes and sizes. There are many types for different fishing scenarios that would determine which lure to use include water clarity, water temperature, water depth, amount of sunlight and of course the type of fish you are trying to catch. When you regularly catch fish with the same lure, those more productive lures usually have a special place in your tackle box.

Bigger fish are in saltwater so you need to use bigger lures to catch them. You will find that saltwater lures tend to be more costly not only because they are bigger but they wear out faster due to the corrosive quality of salt water. You could spend a lot of money buying new saltwater fishing lures or you can make your own.

Which Are The Best Saltwater Lures?

If you could have only one saltwater fishing lure in your tackle box, what would it be? Many people would choose a bucktail which can be retrieved quickly to stay near the surface or slower for deeper depths. They are durable and can be used over and over and even the United States Navy issues a small one ounce white one in survival kits that can catch fish in all different types of waters both day and night.

Some anglers would choose a Fiord spoon if they could have only one saltwater lure. It slices through the water with a frantic wobble like a frightened baitfish trying to flee which triggers game fish to attack from habit, even if they aren’t hungry.

A similar spoon was used by the Scandinavians, the world’s foremost lure fishermen for centuries. A Jackson Artist lure is a good choice and others claim that a banana boat lure is without question the very best.

Where Do I Buy The Best Saltwater Fishing Lures

When I was searching for saltwater fishing lures on Ebay, the first one that I looked at and considered buying was a Heddon Banana lure. I then found a Jim Pfeffer Banana salt water fishing lure that I also liked very much and considered buying. I found out that old lure was one of many designed and made by Jim Pfeffer who started making fishing lures by hand in the 1930’s and designed the original banana lures.

Those old lures are very collectable and several were available on Ebay. Personally I wouldn’t want to take a chance on losing expensive lures so I check out EBay, Craigslist or garage sales to purchase most of my used saltwater fishing lures. I like to have a selection of lures in my tackle box but don't want to spend a lot of money on them.
