When it comes to fishing you need something for the fish to think is food and that typically in the fishing world is called a lure. Of course with different fish you will be looking at different lures. A few reasons a fish will chase after a lure is one because they are hungry, two because they feel like their area is protected, or thirdly they just want to see what is going on. Of course lures come in different sizes, shapes, colors and so forth. By saying this it is obvious that different lures will be used for different fish. The key is to eventually build an arsenal of different lures so you do have what to choose from when needed. If you are fishing in an area you are used to then you may already have a good idea of what types of lures to use. However if the area is new you will need to have some options to choose from when it comes to lures.
The fishing lures you will be using will be tied to the end of your line that comes down your rod out of your reel. There are lures for any type of fishing you might be interested in. It really should be common sense that smaller fish will use smaller lures while larger fish will go after large, medium and small lures. It just depends how they feel on that day. When it comes to purchasing lures you can buy them on and off line so you need not worry that you cant find lures. Lures are not hard to use but you should practice a little. Many times your result isnot because of the lure but rather the presentation of the lure. just reeling it in wont usually work. You have to introduce some motion to the hook with how you reel in the lure.
A very big question that always comes up when choosing lures is how to choose color. This really does depend on what sorts of areas you will be fishing in. You want to use lures that contrast the colors that are already in the area. You want fish to see something out of the ordinary. If you arent sure then you can use a neutral color. The key is to have many different colors in your tackle box. You dont only need these for trial and error but remember while fishing you will lose hooks as well.
When it comes to materials you will find lures that are made out of wood, metal, and plastic. Of course with heavier material you will get heavier lures. This will determine if you need to add weight or use something lighter to get where you want to be. You need to make sure your tackle box has weights, bobbers and extra line. It is almost impossible to predict the conditions you will be facing so it is a good idea to have different things ready for using in different circumstances.
Lots of fisher people have their favorite lures that they swear by while others have a wide assortment and dont mind changing lures quickly if they are getting no fish biting. As time goes on you will eventually learn and figure out what is going to work best and when it will work best.
