How to Choose Artificial Lures in Lure Fishing
Artificial lures used in lure fishing can be classified into soft baits and hard baits. Lures can be classified into floating lures and sinking lures. Fishes detect lures through vision, taste or measuring line just like human. Lures should be chosen according to weather, meaning transparency. In daytime, preferred colors should be silver and yellow under highlight. But color is not constant, also determined by color of water. Colorful artificial lures are used in cloudy daylight, such as red and pink. Lure with red head white body favored by anglers is an all-weather lure.
Soft baits include tackle which consists of hooks, removable fishing weight and bullet sinker. From small fishes only a few grams to supersize fishes are the base of lure fishing. Anglers choose lures for proficiency and costs. Hard baits matching with treble hooks, simulate actions of small fishes in the water to draw attention of target fishes. There is a flap in the head of hard baits, with different lengths and widths, which determine the swimming layer of lure when angler retrieves line through reel. Hard baits with long flap have deeper swimming layer while with short flap having shallower swimming layer. Some lures are added with beads, attracting fishes and improving hook-up ratio through voices.
No matter which kinds of artificial lures are used, casting accuracy and tease skills are the key. Swimming action of lures should be realized by angler retrieving or shaking rod. Nowadays, the Internet is popular. Beginners can learn skills from the video on the Internet.
