#5 – Starter Lures

Just starting out? Fishing from shore? Pick up a few simple yet versatile lures to try out. A spinnerbait, shallow crankbait, and soft plastic worm are easily fished and historically effective.

  • Gather a mix of natural and bright colors for different conditions and water clarity
  • Experiment with different retrieve speeds using the spinnerbait and crankbait
  • Rig a worm using a 3/0 or 4/0 hook
  • Drag it slowly, lift it and let it drop or just let it sit on the bottom

The key to learning here is KEEP IT SIMPLE.
