Give Them What They Want

For decades the goal of most all fly tiers has been to match the hatch....create flies that look close enough to real that they fool those old hardened trout. Even bass fly anglers try hard to create and offer baits that simply look real, natural. I fish Lake Superior a lot during the summer months. The days of being out there in a boat are gone now but the breakwater in Two Harbors, Minnesota juts out into the lake about 1/4 mile if not a bit more and offers water anywhere from 35 to 80 feet deep, plenty for salmon and lake trout and herring. While all three of these species have a thing for lures that are gold with some bright orange on them and will willingly hit most anything tossed out there with that color combination, the herring presents a bit of a glitch.

Make your own blade baits

Blade baits have been around a long time. I remember my dad giving me my first one when I was still riding my bike down to the river. I used that blade all summer, catching all kinds of fish before eventually losing it to a pike. I had repainted it several times that summer trying to match the shad and minnows swimming in the shallow creek mouths. Since then I’ve always had blade baits in my tackle box.

In today’s world, it’s all about having your own theme or customizing everything. You can customize your Xbox 360, your desktop, even your iPhone. Why not customize your plain, dilapidated casting or jigging spoons. Just look at them, spoons may be the most unappealing lure anglers fish with…for real, though they hardly look realistic. Just think of how many more fish you could catch by customizing them. Why not put scale pattern decals, 3-D eyes, or a feather dressed tail on them? No doubt about it, the customized spoon will catch more fish.

Vinyl paints will appear thick when cold. THIN WITH CAUTION! First warm paint to room temperature by placing container in a warm water bath. Next, stir paint thoroughly with a wooden stir stick, being careful not to damage can lining. If paint still appears heavy, thin sparingly with appropriate thinner. lf paint is thinned too much it will lose its ability to cover.
