Gardening is what I do best. An agriculturist by profession, my goal is to help spread knowledge that the earth is made to sustain humankind

Just as significant as selecting the right kind of fishing rods and fishing reels for different styles of fishing is the selection of the right kind of fishing lures for the kind of catch you have in mind. Pictures of huge catches may inspire you to pick up fishing as a hobby, but without a basic understanding of how your instruments work, it’s not surprising if your interest wanes with the frustration of not getting any fish.

The Art of Fishing

It’s always enjoyable and relaxing to fish if you know what to do and what strategies to implement so that you can take part in a game where you know the rules very much and the strategies for winning – well, after all, fishing can also be considered as a game. One of the things you have to understand when fishing is what are the types of lures you have to work with in attracting fish.

As you know, fishing lures come in lots of different sizes and colors. You may also notice that they have certain smell – all these details are specially designed to lure in different kinds of fish. Different fish prey on different organisms which different lures are intended to imitate.

For example, bass fish tend to hide in aquatic vegetation and tend to be attracted with peculiar movements which can indicate prey underwater. They also tend to come up to look for food on the surface and some lures that can be used for surface and underwater are the reflective spoon lures, surface lures and spinner baits. Using lures for fish that don’t go after the organisms they mimic beats the purpose and this will only drive the fish away.

Below is the collection of some great lures for you to make fish believe they will be dealing with their real food. Note that I sourced all of the following items from Amazon just to give you an idea on where you can get every fishing gear you need at always affordable prices. I've also only included the best reviewed items to make you fully satisfied with your fishing trips.

      I fish for walleye on big Minnesota lakes, and for evnneig fishing my go-to lure is the Rapala Minnow Rap, #9. I have caught so many walleye on this bait that some of the lures have been literally chewed to pieces. My favorite colors are the Hot Steel, Purpledescent and Silver, but really any of the colors work. I troll them 60 behind the boat at a ground speed of 2.00 to 2.45 mph. They work best from sunset till about an hour or so after sunset. Hang on, because the big eyeballs are going to hammer this lure.
