  • No matter the lure, you need some luck

     What most amazes me about fishing is the absolute variety of lures we can use to catch bass. Not just the difference in colors, but in styles and types.

    We have “rubber” baits such as worms, creatures, grubs and, well, just about anything a bass is likely to ever encounter. With these, most of the lures action is a result of what you put into them. You can drop, lift, wiggle and shake them to cause movement so they look like something to eat or just to kill, because it aggravates or startles them.
