effective freshwater fishing lure

Post by isabelle » Mon Jun 24, 2013 8:40 pm

What is the most effective freshwater fishing lure? I'm doing a research paper for college and need ideas for what is the most effective all around fishing lure. If you could only have one lure what would it be and why?

Welcome to LureAndMore , ....hope you're gonna get some answers to your questions !

But my own opinion is that such lure has never been invented lol !

It depends on the type of water you fish , which species are present and in which sizes , ....also on which end of the globe you are located , I reckon(I'm in Germany) .

There has been a similar thread on a local site , .......counting for my own neck of the woods I'd say , my # 1 lure would be an "Effzett" spoon in 22gr or even 30gr (medium sizes) , ...color silver with golden reverse side .

http://www.dam.de/?q=en/effzett-spoon

This lure has been sold by the millions through generations of anglers , ......it can catch any local predatory species , most likely pike , though , ..but the smaller and medium sizes get also bitten by trout , asp , perch and even zander on occasion .

The spoon can be fished in stillwater , but also moderate river currents , ......suitable between 1,5m and 15m of depth in stillwater(the smaller the size , the shallower it can be fished without bottom snagging) , even may be jigged along the bottom , ......casts very well , too .

..............but I'm 100% sure , that the good , old "EffZett" spoon can attract a variety of different predatory species all around the globe as well !


Otherwise I might probably chose a natural colored plastic shad 7cms to 10 cms in length , rigged onto an Erie jig of 10 to 15 grams of weight and approbiate hook size , .........but I'm not really a "plastic guy" , but these lures just come close to natural prey and can also be worked in different depths , though mainly designed for bottom jigging with the Erie jig , ......most likely catching zander this way .

On a straight retrieve somewhere up in the water column they also catch species like pike and perch(redfin) , ...but are not the most durable lures .

Yep definitely depends on the species you are targeting.

But Spinnerbaits and inline spinners are great all round fish catchers. As are Blades. Oh and Cicada imitations........ Any of those will catch pretty much anything.

Isabelle, it sounds like a great paper you are writing. What are you studying ???

Interesting, if you can only have one, I reckon for it`s versatility the spinner bait is a great option. If I couldn`t have that then one of these would suit me.

personally i think a celta type lure in all sizes is a all round fish taker ,,the spinners big or small take just about anything you can throw to them fresh water and salt ,,good luck with the paper thumbsupsmilie
