You don’t have to fish with bait to be a successful fisherman. If you don’t want to wait and let the bait soak, then artificials are for you.
Capt. JJ Owczarek Senior Sales Associate
It’s true – you don’t need live bait to catch fish. Artificial baits and lures include everything from soft plastics and hard baits that rattle to popping corks and scented baits. Artificials allow you to easily move around with no live bait to replace. I like to move – and I have caught over 30 trout on the same soft plastic before I had to stop and replace it.
The real fun of artificials is how agile you can be. If you’re fishing with friends, use artificials to cover different parts of the water column – the top, middle, and bottom. Once something bites, you can all switch to that level and have a blast. If you’re at a spot for five or 10 minutes with no luck, simply move on to the next one. Be sure to try different retrieve patterns and colors of your lures. If you’re still not having much luck, come see us and let us know where you’re headed and we’ll get you set up to move – and succeed.
