Tools Of The Trade – Loading a Tackle Box (Part 2)

This week we’re talking about the lures you attach to that terminal tackle so that maybe you get to actually use that scale we mentioned in Part 1.

Here are some classic standards:

The spinnerbait

The Spinnerbait. There are two types, and you should have both: the classic inline spinnerbait and the ‘safety-pin’ design. Both are deadly for almost all species of fish.Crankbait

Crankbait: Typically, these are fish-shaped with a bill angled to run shallow or deep. There should be at least one of each in the tackle box.

Topwater Lures: There are two types, walking and popping. The Zara-Spook and the POP-R are classic examples of each. Our Mighty Mo mouse bait fits into both categories, so it’s a no-brainer for the tackle box.

Soft Plastic Baits

Soft Plastic Baits: These are hi-tech and very versatile baits in innumerable variations and can be used for any species you want to fish for. The classic worm bait is the Senko.
