Default Lure selection

Popping plugs or surface lures are most effective during low light conditions such as dawn or dusk.
Metal lures, such as Kastmasters or Hopkins are best during bright sunlight conditions.
Swimming lures, both shallow swimmers and deep divers work best during the day when fish are less likely to come to the surface to feed and at night when they are close to the bottom and less active.
Bucktail Jigs and eel lures like the sluggo and tube and worm take fish during both day and night. These should be worked along the bottom at an extremely slow retrieve even better when a piece of pork rind or squid strip is added to the hook.

I would like to add large "prop baits" which can be really effective when faced with a wind that gives you a good chop on the water. It can really aggrevate them.

thats exactly why I built propzill, a 12" jitterbug head with a 3" propblade on it's tail... it leaves a wake like a beaver and trhe tail sounds like an electric motor coming out of the water, the underbody is black for those low-light conditions and the back is white soo my aging eyes can watch her get busted!

One of my favorites is the darter. I can cast 'em from the beach, swim them in a rip. They work for me.

Default Re: Lure selection

this is loaded. where you are fishing is as important to selection as ever before. we should get a maine mass. conn. RI NY NJ Virginia carolina lure selection started and perhaps come up with a universal simple selection for the beginner as well as a indiana/west coast wiper/hybrid selection here. i will work on it

Default Re: Lure selection

Some of the tackle distributors put out specific regional lure kits for say New England - Long Island - NJ and Southern US coasts. Most are patterned after the forage prevalent or indigenous to the specific areas. Bunker herring and mackerel. West coast shall prove a bit of a challenge. Ill get with you to put a few regional sets together. Not limited to just the salt. Might as well see if we can put a wiper kit and freshwater kits together. Willie has a springtime artificial article that will prove to be useful towards that end.Tins and bucktails are universal.

Ill brainstorm with you bit later after i get some other menial but important stuff that Im behind on completed. Good Idea Paul.

Question Re: Lure selection

My question is: Why "smilin bill" bucktails? I see them mentioned frequently and would like to know what is so special about them, or what makes them better than an Upperman or bullet nose jig etc. Thanks.

My favorite tin is the tin squid, with a buck tail. 2-3 ozs, will get out to where I want to be. I like 'em better than any other. For a spoon, I like Little Cleo's.

The open mouth catches the water differently than a plain jig that makes it move and react somewhat differently in the current. just a simple movement off the bottom can mean a nudge or a strike. i epoxy a small clear plastic lip beneath the mouth to catch some sand and push it up off the bottom as to disturb the floor for an added visual for a fish to see and follow. i have made some jiggy fly;s to do that as well as to attract em better.
