Salt Water Fishing Hooks and Lures

Updated on March 9, 2019

Salt Water Fishing Hooks

This is a huge salt water fishing hook that you put a big fish head on to catch sharks. It can also be used as a chum hook to draw other fish to your boat.

Salt Water Fishing off of docks is a great way to cast net for your bait fish. You will pay for your net in no time at all by getting your own bait fish. Also ask permission to fish off boat docks behind waterfront resorts/restaurants. There is some of the best fishing in Brevard County, Florida. There is an abundance of Saltwater Catfish, Snook, Red-drum and Trout under these docks.

Remember you need a Salt water fishing license to keep blue crabs and catch and release the ones smaller than four inches across the crabs back.

Salt Water Fishing Lures

Salt Water Fishing Lures

I usually use live bait when I salt water fish. My friends say they are more successful using lures. The two shown here are a mullet replica fish lure with rattles inside. When this lure is reeled back into your pole it rattles (makes noise) to attract more fish hits.

Salt Water Fishing Spoons

Spoons are very effective lures that spin around under the water as they are retrieved. This spoon has holes drilled into it to cause a whistle, when reeled in to attract the fish to hit.

The second picture is three of my favourite spoons I use. A gold and silver spoon will also reflect the sun when fishing the Flats of the Indian River lagoon. The red and white spoon is the most successful for hooking sea trout.

Typical Salt Water Fish Hooks

  • Number #1- Shown here are different lengths and thickness of J-hooks. I usually buy steel hooks instead of stainless steal hooks so the hooks rust out of the fishes mouth, in the case of the line snapping. You can put on a least three sand flees on one hook or thread a piece of fish on this hook to surf fish for Blues, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon or even Sharks.
  • Number#2 - These small hooks are for catching bait fish off of docks or near pylons under a causeway over the Indian River of Brevard Florida. Don't be surprised if you hook a Blow fish or Sheepshead with this tiny hook. I have had it happen.
  • Number#3- picture is of size ten salt water fish hooks that I use the most. They are a thicker J-Hook and won't snap if you hook a 28 inch Snook.
  • Number#4- These hooks have barbs on their backs and this allows the cut bait or sea sand flees to remain fastened to the hook longer. Using these hooks you won't see your bait go flying off into the sunset as you cast out. Barbed hooks are also good for worm baits.

Fishing Jig Hooks

Jig Fishing Hooks and Artificial Baits

Jig Hooks come with a weight built onto the front of the hook. The eye of the hook is situated on top of this weight.

You can thread the artificial rubber type baits onto the front of the hook and then slid it up to hook into a small hook before the weight. This small hook ensures your bait stays on. You can review the video below to see a demonstration of this procedure.

These artificial baits resemble frogs legs, shrimp, and even worms. The floppy tails give the jig baits more action in the water.

Use the right hook for the right fish and have a successful fishing day!

      I haven't been fishing at all since I was a kid. It seems like it would be pretty relaxing. I like being out in nature.

      Thank you Billybuc. I tried fly fishing and I can see the beauty in it. I myself are a lazy fisherwoman and prefer to drop the line in and watch nature suround me. I appreciate you dropping by.

      I used to do a lot of saltwater fishing as a kid; mostly for salmon. Now it is strictly fly fishing for trout. Good luck the next time out.

      Thank you Faith Reaper a lot. Fishing is a passion of mine for sure. I have more fun baiting hooks than selling them but keep the suggestions coming. They make my day.
