Hi Adrian, Many anglers are “fished” in buying as many lures as they see.
I fish pretty simple and go by 4-rules:
-early in the season when water is colder and fish are less active I use slower moving lures both in hard-body baits and soft-plastics.
-as water temps warm up I fish faster lures like spoons, body-baits, spinnerbaits, etc.
-if I think fish are feeding I use natural colored lures that look and swim like their food.
-if I thin fish are not feeding then I try and make them strike using erratic swimming lures, bright unnatural colors and lures with rattles.
Fish with a Passion
God bless you,
