Largemouth bass fishing lures

By Edited May 1, 2016 1 2

A largemouth bass eats so many things, which allow us to make a variety of lures. Lures that imitate aquatic living things are the ones mostly used. Here are a few lures that can be used in Largemouth bass fishing.

Polymer worms are considered to be very popular lures among largemouth bass fishermen. It can be hooked in a number of different configurations and fished to avoid getting entangled in the vegetation. Available in a variety of lengths and different colors, the Carolina and Texas rigs are the most popular configurations used when fishing these worms. These worms require some patience that certain anglers are short of when fishing these lures, but they will catch fish.

Baits that are made of a soft plastic resemble small critters, such as crayfish, lizards, and other aquatic food sources for bass, are reliable lures. However, this type of bait must be fished at a leisurely pace through the vegetation and along the bottom. Other productive largemouth bass lures include jigheads, that is, a hook with a weighted head to which you can attach trailers and tubes.

Search baits, or crankbaits, are another option. These lures are cast for the purpose of finding bass at particular depths as they are feeding. These baits look similar to round-bodied fish, but they project treble hooks from the end and bottom of the lures. Lipless crankbaits are permitted to sink to a specific depth before being reeled back at that particular depth. Used in shallow water, Crankbaits that are known as "shallow-diving", have a little lip in front that allows the lure to dip as deep as six feet when being reeled in. Crainkbaits that are used for deeper fishing are designed with a much larger lip.

For largemouth bass fishing in the top water, propbaits, stickbaits, and other kinds of bait are used. Stickbaits are floaters, and the angler must make them move in a manner that will attract the bass. They are slowly jerked along, or reeled in smoothly. Propbaits are somewhat like stickbaits; however, either or both ends have a prop. This allows the lure to be reeled in more quickly than a stickbait.

The wacky worm has always produced well for me. Top water fishing in the summer is exciting. There's just something about the explosion on top of the water that gets your heart pounding.

Thumbs up on this one!

jc: I didn't know that you are a fisherman! That is cool. The wacky rig is my favorite bass lure as well.
