Three Types Of Fishing Bait And Lures

Louise Morris

Going fishing isn't as easy as just sticking a worm on the hook, dropping it into the water, and getting a fish. While some fish do like and will strike on worms, if you want to get something particular, you are going to have to use specific lures. There are a whole lot of lures out there, and not everyone knows what they all are. 

Live Bait

Live bait is more than just worms. It includes any bait that is alive when you put it on your hook and drop it in the water. Live bait moves around, and that movement can attract a fish's eye. Depending on what you are looking for, live bait can include minnows and frogs. If you are deep sea fishing, then your live bait is more likely to consist of a larger baitfish that your target tends to eat. 


Flies are used for a particular kind of fishing, fly fishing. With this kind of fishing, you use a long fishing pole, often bamboo, and cast your line out as far as you can. You may use extra line so that you can continue to pull the line in slowly. With fly fishing, you don't leave the lure in the water for long, you keep it moving as you reel it in. Flies are generally made out of string and feathers. There are different kinds of flies, dry flies and wet flies. Dry flies are those that resemble insects that live on top of the water or have just fallen into the water. Wet flies resemble insects that live under the water. 


Jigs are reasonably inexpensive and fairly efficient. They come in a wide variety of styles. Basically, they are designed to mimic live bait. They generally have a lead weight in the head so that they sink. The other end can have everything from rubber fringe to feathers to help affect the movement of the jig. Generally, you will have to provide some of the movement so that the jig will move, but the weight in the head of the jig can help with some of the movement, especially if you are raising the jig up and down. You want to try to keep the jig moving as naturally as possible so that you can catch the fish you are looking for. 

Knowing about different lures and bait can make you a more efficient fisher. For more information, contact a professional in your area like those found at Easy View Tackle Systems.
