We recently had a customer ask about the different options that where available for creating fishing jigs, and we thought it would be a good idea to write a quick blog post about it. Thanks Anthony for the idea!
Although the tandem spinnerbait is a very popular Bass fishing lure, it can be an equally effective lure for any fish that is attracted to flash and vibration.
Spinnerbaits are available in many forms and color variations, but nothing beats designing your own pattern to fit your unique requirements.
The fishing lure’s body shape is the single most important design consideration when inventing new soft bait.
A basic understanding of concepts such as natural resemblance, center of gravity, frontal resistance, and stationary action must be understood to maximize the lure’s fish-catching ability.
The crankbait has more design variations and considerations than most other types of fishing tackle. It’s action and effectiveness is drastically affected by everything from the shape of the body all the way down to the position of its hooks.
To create a truly effective crankbait, tackle makers must carefully consider all of the aspects that affect the lure and balance them into one successful design.
Depending on where you live, the definition of the term “crankbait” will vary drastically. For the purposes of this article, we will consider a crankbait to be any hard bodied lure that naturally produces action when retrieved.
Crankbaits can come with or without lips, just so long as they have that recognizable swimming wiggle when you’re pulling them through the water.
