There is no better way to pass a hot summer’s day than to go fishing for bass. Everyone has their favorite hole for catching a big one. This is the goal. A bass can be very picky. What they hit hard one day, the next day they find icky. Having many choices of lures will likely increase the chances of getting a strike. Here a few fishing tackle tips to help get a lure in their lips.

One of the all-time best bass fishing lures is the Lindy Fuzz-e Grub. It is a jig that can work magic, attracting lots of fish. It comes in a variety of sizes, from 1/16 oz. to 3/8 oz.—the larger, heavier lure seems to work best.

They come in several different color patterns from lime green with a black tail to hot pink with a white tail. All of the color patterns seem to be successful depending on the day.

The Storm Thunder Crank is a crank bait lure that is very versatile for different fishing conditions. It comes in several sizes and patterns. The juvenile bass pattern and the juvenile perch pattern are the most popular.

The Storm Thunder has a long, slightly flaring bib that is set almost parallel to the body. This insures that the lure will dive deep and behave like a young fish.

It is also designed to make a noise by rattling and shaking. This helps attract attention and encourages the fish to strike. When the fish does strike, there is a treble hook waiting.

These lures, in all their variations, will catch even the pickiest fish. However, if fishing is slow, you can always sit in the boat and play online fishing games. There are many free fishing games that are fun and pass the time until the fish decide to bite.
