Fishing lures are objects designed to look and move like real fish and attached to the end of a fishing line. Live fish mistake them for prey and are caught on hooks when they try to feed on them.
These lures are even designed to move like fish; they're nothing but fishing bait. Some come with single or double hooks, while some come with even triple hooks. There are different types of fishing lures, each having a purpose of its own. Let's have a look at all of them.
Normally, minnow, craw fish, or plastic worms are attached to the hook to attract the fish. If you are using this lure, then you will have to ensure that the rod is moved at regular intervals, so that the jig moves.
These lures flash when they come in contact with light, and wobble as well as dart due to their shape. This wobbling and darting helps in attracting fish. They are also inexpensive compared to the rest of the lot.
Also known as top layer lures or poppers, these float on the water surface, resembling prey that usually swims close to the surface. The fish have to sometimes sprint out of water to catch this lure. These are your best option when you're fishing in a water body that has lot of weed; there is also no problem of them getting entangled in the plants.
They have a blade which rotates once in water. This rotation creates an illusion of fish scales. You can also reduce the speed of these lures, so that they resemble an injured fish.
If you are going sport fishing, then you can use soft plastic lures shaped like flies or fish. For fly fishing, you can use poppers and flies as well, as these lures are often on the surface of the water. However, it is only with experience that you will be able to choose the right fishing lures.
