Every tackle box should have natural lures. Live bait spoils. Naturals catch fish but don’t smell.
Natural Lures- Lifelike, Durable
Naturals are lifelike and durable. There are hundreds of jigs that mimic the movements of frys when retrieve with a jerking motion or jigged from the bottom. The soft materials keeps the fish from spitting the lure after striking. When live bait is no longer moving or torn apart, naturals keep working.
Natural Lures – All Water Conditions
Naturals depend on action and look to attract fish. Scents can be added. Because three senses are used to attract fish, naturals can be used in any water condition. In murky water, attraction attracts and look catches. In clear water, the look attracts fish while the action drives them crazy. Lures should be match the bait living in the water. Depth and water condition is not as important as a natural look. Bait can be identified by walking the shore.
It takes time to identify exactly the right natural bait. Fishing may be slow. Patiently changing baits until fish begin to hit can pay off. Some naturals like frogs or worms work anywhere, but color choice is important. Keep trying.
Naturals cannot be left to sit on the bottom or drift at a random depth. Experimenting with retrieval, once the right bait is found, can improve results. One day, a lure bounced off the bottom will be dynamite. The next day, the same lure at the same place, retrieving the bait the with quick stops may work.
