Though fishing with metal lures is pretty straightforward once you’ ve learned which styles to fish and when to fish them, these tips will help you catch more fish on these classic lures.

1 – The right metal lure or jig is selected – Selecting the right metal lure or jig requires some knowledge from the angler regarding what it will be used for and where? For example whilst targeting medium sized tailor and salmon over a short casting distance during calm, windless conditions, a small, light metal lure around 20 – 30 grams in weight might be selected. Where as if chasing larger tailor and salmon within a long casting distance in rougher , windier conditions, a metal lure that is larger and heavier may be required. Fishing with metal lures and jigs really gives an angler the chance to imitate the various actions of many bait fish to perfection. Metal lures are ideal for targeting fish species that hunt small to medium sized bait fish close to or on top of the water surface and will produce incredible results when used correctly. Metal jigs are designed to be retrieved vertically as opposed to metal lures and slices being retrieved horizontally through the water column. Size and colour choice is also a key factor when selecting any lure and trying to replicate the exact size, profile and colour of the prey your intended target species is feeding upon will increase chances considerably! Most lures on today’s market contain a series of stripes on them, this is designed to mimic the fright stripes often seen on bait fish during predatory situations. The weight of the metal lure or jig should also be taken into careful consideration as trying to cast a lightly weighted, metal a long distance requires skill and the correct fishing tackle. Selecting the correctly weighted jig is also crucial as a jig that is too heavy will simply not look natural enough to fool most fish and a jig that is too light will simply not make it down into the strike zone and stay there long enough to be truly effective.
