I've just recently got into fishing mostly have bass and trout in my area. Is my bait and lures good? Is there anything else I should buy?
Ok. SOME of yall will be very "triggered" at this post but i need to address the elephant in the room. I am not here to target anyone specifically because tons of people do it, but... Most people dont want to tell some 10yr old what broken lure you found on a stick, your grandpas tackle box, or in the aisle of walmart is 😤. AND for the cherry on top, NO i am not going to write a 5 page essay on what color, size and what fish the chatterbait you "just picked up" will catch. Sorry for everyone offended by this and i know this group is called "baits and lures" but im sure some of you guys ard tired of this aswell.
Went fishing yesterday and the bass were too small for my regular crank baits, and realized I didn’t have a lot of smaller sized ones even for panfishing. Cue a Walmart trip today and a handful of delightfully cheap lures from a brand I’ve fished from forever. What are y’all’s thoughts? Have y’all used these before for either bass or panfish? The singular one I had yesterday zipped around in the water like a little minnow, which was pleasing to myself and the fish who kept after it. But I’m curious about everyone else’s experience
So I'm planning a nighttime fishing trip, which I've never been. Besides a worm on a sinker on the bottom. What are some good nighttime lures? And what colors? I'm going for bass, catfish, anything that bites at night. Lol. I look forward to any advice or tips. Keep them lines tight
What would be a good lure or bait for large mouth bass?
