Deep sea fishing lures are not just different in size to fresh water fishing lures but also have other characteristics specific to deep sea fishing. It is extemely important for your success as a fisherman who prefers deep sea fishing to learn which lures to choose, when and why. Many times it can seem like a difficult job when you’re confronted with getting to pick a deep sea lure to use.
The facts are that there are some types of lures which work better for catching some types of fish than others. The type you ultimately choose is entirely up to you, but recognizing how to pick the correct one will unquestionably help you catch vastly more fish.
One of the first things that you need to recognize before choosing which deep sea fishing lure you are will use is the size of the fish you are seeking. One of the characteristics of an amateur fisherman is that they do not understand that the size of the fish determines the size of the lure that you should use.
Larger fish demand that you use a larger lure to successfully snare the fish. On the other hand for smaller fish you’ll need to use a lure which can fit in it’s mouth or you’ll fail to hook up even if you manage to get a strike.
Another condition to consider when choosing a deep sea fishing lure is how natural the lure looks and moves in the water. Lures should look like the food your target fish usually likes to eat.
Lures which look completely unrealistic have little chance of catching fish even if somtimes they will try to bite it. However, if you go deep sae fishing with a lure that looks entirely natural then tons of fish will attack it with a very good chance of being caught.
This is another common mistake that amateur fishermen make, using lures that do not look completely realistic. Professionals never make this mistake, they cannot afford to waste their time by not always using realistic looking lures.
The next mistake many amateur fishermen make is to not choose the correct type of line for the the type of lure that you utilize. It seems clear that if you use a heavier lure then you’re going to lose it if you don’t use a heavier line to support the weight of the lure plus the potential weight of the fish you are pursuing. At the same time, a lighter lure can easily be used on a lighter line without being forced to spend money on one of the heavier lines.
Are you aware that an additional consideration when picking a sea fishing lure is deciding whether or not to use live bait?. There are some lures which have been specifically designed to have live bait attached. These often have special fittings to keep the bait from causing any additional drag or spinning while being trolled or retrieved fast.
As you can see from this overview, there is more to choosing your deep sea fishing lures and the associated tackle than immediately meets the eye. Careful choice of lure, matched with line, reel and rod are required to progress from an amateur fisherman who rarely catches fish to a professional who always catches fish.
