Bass Fishing Lures Which To Use

Aug 13, 2008
Bass fishing is a great sport that allows you to spend time with friends and family relaxing doing something that you really enjoy. Many anglers love the opportunity to see some of the wonderful things that nature has to offer while out on the lakes and rivers. The scenery is definitely beautiful and can't be matched by anything else.

Whatever takes you out of the house or office and onto the waters to go bass fishing, you need to get all of your gear ready before you go out. One of the most important items found in your fishing gear will be the fishing lures. When it comes to bass fishing you have the biggest selection available compared to any other type of fishing lures.

With so many different shapes, sizes and colors available how do you know which ones to choose? In the end it all comes down to your personal preference but the information listed below can help you get started searching for the bass fishing lures that work the best for you.

Below is a list of some of the best bass fishing lures in North America.


Spinnerbait is one of the most popular bass fishing lures used today. They come in many different colors such as red, yellow, white, brown, black and so forth with gold or silver blades. Many anglers prefer the metallic spinnerbaits but all designs are bright and shiny to attract the attention of the bass. Some spinnerbaits have rubber skirts that are designed specifically for getting the attention of the bass. You can change these skirts making this type of spinnerbait more versatile.

When it comes to the shape of spinnerbait you should use, you need to consider the types of fish found in the water where you are located. Spinnerbait is designed to imitate the bait fish found in different waters to outsmart the bass so they will take the bait. These tend to trick the bass into taking the bait by impulse.


Another very popular bass fishing lure is the crankbait lure. It was given this name because the lure is connected to the end if the line and then you crank it back to the area where you are fishing. Some crankbaits sink directly to the bottom of the water while others float on the top. There are even crankbaits that stay suspended at the depth where you stopped reeling it in. Crankbaits are designed for shallow, medium and deep waters.


There are a wide variety of jigs available for you to choose from. The bucktail jig is very popular because they resemble smaller fish that the bass feed on.

Bucktails are made with both curly and straight tails to capture the attention of the bass easier. Many experienced anglers have great success with the Jig and Pig lure. These are the lures that are used in many tournaments.

Topwater Plugs

The topwater plug is a great lure that floats along the top of the water. When you get a bite it will be pulled down into the water so you know it is time to set the hook. They work great around lily pads, trees, stumps and around docks. They help prevent you from getting hung up on obstacles while fishing for the bass. Some examples of topwater plugs include spoons, jitterbugs and boppers.
