Lure selection

Ok we all have the go to lures , and I am sure each one of us has different one we go to. How did you come to have the specific lures as go to lures. Did someone clue you in on a secrete ? did your buddy tell you to. Did you just like the lure? Did it just look like it would catch fish.

Tell us what that lure is and why.

Mine was a big lake lure this year, Double orange crush. Only one trip this year did it not catch me a fish.

Why I wanted to try UV lures this year , and it worked out that it was the first one I tried this spring.

When i call people i want to know TWO things, how much water and how far down there coming. Its a new quiz for me everyday to figure it out. Being on the water everyday helps. If something is smoking hot for someone then ill change it up, being on active fish and right dept is more important then light green vs dark green to me.

Go too, for me is a combination of what's worked in the past, what people ( I trust ) say is hot. If I'm marking fish and the bite is slow, I'll leave the proven producers in the water. I'll choose a few rods and change things up, hoping to find a hot combo. The moonshine rv stuff was great. Long copper rigs 400+ saved the day more than a few times. Always give last trips stud some prime time the next outing.

Often as I read reports I will look up spoons if I am unfamiliar with them, the ones I like I will buy and give them some time in the water. Occasionally I will pick up a spoon that someone tells me about, or one I just felt like trying. For flies I tend to pick my own.

My hottest spoon of the year was probably a Flounder Pounder but we didn't have anything that really seamed to stand out. My best fly for the year was a light green and glow from ITO behind a white pearl glow SD. Also did well with a blue-green ITO.

You could not have said it better. When you are on fish speed and depth are key. The 70's porn moonshine was a hot spoon for us.

Couldnt have said it better my self! My go tos are spin doctor/flys, mainly white with UV and white blue bubble. I feel if I'm on a rice fish, I'm going to get them going eventually with my spread by adjusting boat angle, speed etc. usually guys go to presentations come from personal confidence. I have a hard te taking off something I know catches fish for me just because someone else said they caught some fish on something else

Gotta say that the moonshine lures are best year after year. When we first started we asked our good friend to give us 6 "must have" lures and went from there. This year moonshine razor burn and crab face were the two hottest. I would say those two lures took a third of our fish. Dint matter where, rigger,copper,dipsy, went strong all day too.

For me the one lure that went out every trip this year was the big white paddle with a hypnotist fly on the deep rigger.

Fish were deep, big white paddle and KRW's Riverside fly. 1st night of a 5 day trip it took 8 out of 16 bites. Then it continued to take hits the rest of the week.

We all have our favorites.

Green jeans usually takes a few rips 1st thing in the morning for me.

Happy meal is consistent.

Moo Moo meat rig

spinnie with green fly

Carmel Dolphin

FL green glow froggy

Acie high glow plugs

and since I started using them last year Scarpace plugs have to go somewhere in the starting line up.

The list goes on and on and on and on.......it's good to have options. As much as the fishing changes it's crucial to be changing lures
