How to choose a catchy spinning lure?

Choosing the right lure for a spinning rod is a skillful process that requires deep knowledge of the behavior of a particular tackle, as well as many years of personal fishing experience. The variety of assortment of fishing shops often makes the choice very difficult and confusing, forcing the consumer to take something in a hurry 'by eye'. To prevent this from happening, you should listen to expert recommendations and pay attention to the following aspects:

Fishing conditions. Regardless of where the fishing takes place, always remember three key rules for finding a cool spot:

  1. The abundance of food supply guarantees the presence of fish in this place;

  2. Fish (even the most imprudent) like to lie on the bottom;

  3. Driftwood and grassy thickets are a favorite ambush site for predatory fish.

  4. Based on these descriptions, you can easily find the place of the best bite.

Lure type. Traditionally, all spinning lures are divided into:

  1. silicone. Their dignity is expressed in the exact imitation of the movement of small animals. As a rule, they are flavorful and edible;

  2. foam rubber. They are used only with jig heads due to their negligible weight. They are characterized by the fact that when deepening they raise the 'tail', resembling a fish feeding from the bottom.

  3. wobblers. A huge group of lures with a variety of classes and versions. The most interesting and most popular lure for anglers around the world. You can pick up a 'fish for any fishing conditions.

  4. spinners. Traditionally, the first hard baits, which are stamping with a relief (or just color) of the side of the fish. They are subdivided into oscillating and spinning lures. Used primarily for catching 'traditional' predators.

Fishing object. When the fishing conditions are selected, and the range of lures has been studied, it is time to find out what the objects of fishing are pecking at:

  1. When 'hunting' for pike, you should not get hung up on choosing the perfect bait – this predator does not pick and choose either with spoons, wobblers, or silicone vibrotails.

  2. Contrary to the previous predator, pike perch is more susceptible to jig lures (foam rubber and silicone fish), as well as oscillating spoons. When fishing at night, it can be hooked onto shallow water wobblers.

  3. The perch 'eats' almost everything that is offered to him: small wobblers, spinners, and silicone vibro-tails. In autumn, it can activate on small vibrators and jig tackles.

  4. For asp fishing, experienced anglers mainly use heavy baits: spoons or wobblers (poppers or walkers).

  5. Of all the lure 'dishes', the chub prefers to hunt wobblers (such as cicadas and cranks), spinners and small spoons.

  6. Trout. Delicious fish with a disgusting character, the unpredictability of which is ahead of the angler's desire to catch it. Most often reacts to micro-vibrators, jig heads and wobblers (minnow).

The best lures for spinning

Rublex orkla

Rating: 5.0

Rublex orkla

The famous series of oscillating lures, which has become the hallmark of Rublex. It uses the same principles of geometry as the domestic spinners of the Atom series – the body has a double bend, which allows the bait to make dynamic, leaping movements, similar to the yaw of a small fish.

According to the manufacturer, the Rublex Orkla series has ten different paint options. Some color schemes are so realistic that the spoons take on the likeness of trout and mackerel fry. There is another option, in which the emphasis is on the catchiness achieved by the red color of the head. The cost of the lures of this series is low, and they can be used everywhere, be it a lake, a stream or the open sea.

Advantages

  • low price coupled with high catchability;

  • the ability to choose among ten color options;

  • unique hopping movements, imitating the yaw of fry with high accuracy.

disadvantages

  • not detected.

'Atom' and 'Atom-2'

Rating: 4.9

atom

Oscillating lure for spinning is widely known in the circles of domestic fishermen, the prototype of which was homemade stamping from sheet metal. The first version of 'Atom' had a characteristically elongated body shape, twice curved around its entire perimeter. This geometry allowed the spoon not only to show a unique play when changing the wire, but also to emit a characteristic low-frequency sound that attracted predators from afar. With the change of generations, there was a slight shift towards modernization, the 'Atom-2' acquired a shortened body, which took on a teardrop shape and a small plastic blade on the tee.

Since the first Atom models were produced in the Soviet Union, the behavior of the spoon on the water has long been successfully studied by all those who are not indifferent to fishing. Both small river representatives and real trophy samples became its prey.

Advantages

  • wide variety of design;

  • the ability to catch trophy predators;

  • low cost compared to competitors;

  • predictable behavior of the bait during the posting.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Kuusamo Rasanen

Rating: 4.9

Kuusamo Rasanen

Oscillating lures for spinning Kuusamo Rasanen came to the Russian market in two almost identical variations. In one version they are equipped with a non-hook hook, and in the other they use a standard tee for fishing. If everything is more or less clear with the limits of applicability of the second, then the first version of the hook is used on overgrown reservoirs, the chance of snagging on which is too great.

As for the appearance, Kuusamo Rasanen has an abundance of color options. The most catchy, in the opinion of fishermen, are vibrators with prevailing dark (or moderate) shades, almost completely imitating small fish. Coupled with a low price, this set from a Finnish company becomes a worthy representative of the TOP of the best.

Advantages

  • an abundance of coloring options;

  • the presence of prints in the form of flakes that give glare (not on all models);

  • equipped with tees or non-hooks;

  • low purchase cost;

  • the possibility of fishing for a trophy predator.

disadvantages

  • not identified.

Mepps COMET BLACK FURY

Rating: 4.8

Mepps COMET BLACK FURY

'Black Furia' is another series of lures from Mepps, which has earned a place in the rating for its high catchability and low purchase cost. As in the case of Aglia, the spinner's petal is shaped like a drop with a characteristic black color. Several concentric circles and an inscription made in yellow or orange colors act as attractive elements on such a 'faceless' basis. The base of the bait is, as always, finished in gold, and the same axial weight plays the role of a weighting agent, the grooves of which are painted in the color of the petal. The main prey of Mepps COMET BLACK FURY is pike and perch, but with quieter tracking there is a good chance of catching ides or chubs.

Advantages

  • high fishing efficiency in any water;

  • high quality and reliable fittings;

  • catchy appearance;

  • low cost level;

  • versatility in terms of production.

disadvantages

  • limited color options;

  • small variability in weight distribution.

Mepps Aglia

Rating: 4.7

Mepps Aglia

The next place in the rating goes to inexpensive tee spinners of the budget series, sharpened for catching a predator of any size. It is noteworthy that the variability of the rotators within the line is limited only by the difference in weight – the external parameters, as well as the fishing styles, are almost identical. The base of the spinner is represented by a body made in gold and a teardrop-shaped petal with a characteristic bronze, silver or the same golden hue. The role of the weighting agent is played by the axial weight with small recesses (or thinning) designed to create additional acoustic vibrations in the water.

Depending on the weight, Mepps Aglia can catch small perches, redfins, ide (weighing up to 4.5-6.5 grams), as well as pike, chub and asp (weighing over 6.5 grams). These are very good baits with an affordable price level for hobbyists.

Advantages

  • low price;

  • wide variability of spoons by weight;

  • versatility of the series – the ability to fish of any size;

  • powerful and reliable tees.

disadvantages

  • limited color options.

Blue fox super bou

Rating: 4.6

Blue fox super bou

Standard spinning rod with non-standard equipment, specially designed for fishing taimen and pike. It has a whole range of irritating factors, from the sound of the vibration of the petal to the abundant edge of the hook. When wet, the fluff begins to imitate the body of a small fish, creating characteristic vibrations and micromotions. The round petal of the Blue Fox Super Bou, as well as the lure body, is made of polished stainless steel. When moving at shallow depths, light reflections are especially clearly visible, resulting from the reflection of sunlight from the polished surface of the bait. Spreading in water, they attract the attention of sensitive predators, after which they begin to provoke them to bite in all possible ways. The only drawback of this bait is its cost – it is this fact that determines its low popularity among amateurs.

Advantages

  • sharpening for catching a large predator (the total weight of the bait is 24 grams);

  • spectacular appearance;

  • the presence of three characteristic stimuli (imitation of the movement of a fish, glare, vibration);

  • high quality base metal.

disadvantages

  • high price;

  • plumage breakage is observed after the first fishing.

The best wobblers for spinning

ZipBaits ORBIT 110 SP, 11 cm, 16.5 g

Rating: 5.0

ZipBaits ORBIT

Another representative of the minnow class, who has established himself as an experienced 'fighter' with trophy fish in any type of water body. With a length of 110 millimeters, its weight was 16.5 grams, which largely determined the use of a wobbler as a tackle for long-distance casting. But without the implemented idea of ​​the engineers of the ZipBaits company, the flight qualities of the bait could cause big problems. The elongated shape of the minnow, with a fixed load, had a sail – it was literally carried away from the intended place of fall. But thanks to the system of a floating magnetic sinker, shifting to the tail by inertia, the casting accuracy was significantly increased.

As for the cost of ZipBaits ORBIT 110 SP, not every angler can afford it. This wobbler was created as a full-fledged professional lure, for which it was awarded an exorbitant price tag.

Advantages

  • well thought-out cargo system;

  • good flight characteristics;

  • a huge assortment of fish in various colors;

  • focus on fishing for trophy pike and pike perch.

disadvantages

  • high price.

ZipBaits Khamsin 70 SP

Rating: 4.9

ZipBaits Khamsin

The first and only shad, included in the overall rating of the best wobblers for spinning. Perfectly manifests itself when fishing at shallow depths, mainly in freshwater reservoirs. No less qualitatively it 'cleans' overgrown water, which is rich in a predator standing in it, such as a large and lazy pike, pike perch or perch. Like all shads, the ZipBaits Khamsin 70 SP is characterized by diving movements during the drive, as well as characteristic sounds from the blade cutting through the water column. It can be used both for stepped non-aggressive twitching and for non-stop wiring. With a length of seven centimeters, it perfectly passes for a fry, prowling in search of a secluded place.

When comparing ZipBaits Khamsin 70 SP with its closest competitors, it becomes clear that it is not at all focused on long casts. The weight of 9.5 grams will obviously not be enough to make an accurate cast … but when catching short, it shows itself to be one of the best lures on the domestic market.

Advantages

  • high catchability when applied near overgrown areas and in open water;

  • the best fishing performance at short distances;

  • moderate, not scaring away predators, colors;

  • optimal overall performance.

disadvantages

  • it is impossible to make an accurate and distant cast;

  • high price.

YO-ZURI L-Minnow 66

Rating: 4.9

YO-ZURI L-Minnow

A 16-gram minnow of a shortened design with outstanding flight characteristics. Despite the length of 66 millimeters, it organically contains two lugs for setting tees in order to ensure a greater probability of snagging during maneuverable postings. It looks very defiant – there is not a single restrained design in the color base. Nevertheless, such “explosions” of brightness came just in time for the wobbler, significantly increasing the bite compared to the previous series.

As for the practical application of the YO-ZURI L-Minnow 66, it is worth noting the outstanding flight characteristics, which allow accurate long-distance casts. The catch of this catchy fish very often becomes a trophy predator, for which both amateurs and professionals treat it with respect.

Advantages

  • good flight characteristics;

  • low price;

  • the range includes only catchy, bright colors;

  • good weight distribution with short body length.

disadvantages

  • not identified.

Pontoon 21 Greedy-Guts 99SP-SR

Rating: 4.8

Pontoon 21 Greedy-Guts 99SP-SR

A series of 99 mm minnows from the Japanese company Pontoon 21, which can be credited with a huge number of spectacular (and effective) colors, as well as excellent weight-ergonomic parameters. As in the case with other representatives of the rating, the 15.4-gram fish has a 'cunning' balancer system aimed at giving the body longitudinal and lateral vibrations. A drop-like blade and a classic body, brightly and brightly decorated, give the wobbler agility and lightness. Thanks to these qualities, fishermen manage to 'swing' even the laziest predator lying in the reed or bottom area of ​​the reservoir.

Actually, both from the side and from the bottom, Pontoon 21 Greedy-Guts 99SP-SR appears in a very effective way. The main 'victims' of this wobbler are pike and ide, a little less often it takes chub and even perch. These lures have always been appreciated for their high catchability and low cost, for which they naturally win a place in the rating of the best wobblers.

Advantages

  • low price;

  • spectacular customization;

  • a predator's provocation to attack is created by a combination of three factors: game, sound and appearance;

  • optimal overall dimensions.

disadvantages

  • not detected.

Tsuribito hard minnow

Rating: 4.8

Tsuribito hard minnow

Tsuribito Hard Minnow is an extensive line of lures, available in custom models with positive and neutral buoyancy. Without exception, all are equipped with a rounded blade that creates additional drag during wiring and emits a characteristic acoustic wave. On the body, according to the classic minnow pattern, there are two eyes for powerful threesomes. It has an active play on all unwinding options, which provokes the attack of even a sluggish and slow predator.

The main caste of Tsuribito Hard Minnow is represented by fish weighing 16.2 grams and 9.5 centimeters long. Thanks to such dimensions, it easily withstands attacks from large pike, not to mention smaller chub and perch.

According to experts, the working horizon of the bait varies in the range of one to two meters. Any deviation from the recommended values ​​can be accompanied by a deterioration in bite and a change in the quality of the game for the worse.

Advantages

  • low price;

  • realistic behavior in the water column;

  • optimal overall parameters that guarantee the bite of large and small fish;

  • all custom color options work effectively.

disadvantages

  • scarcity of color options.

Jackall Squad Minnow 80 SP

Rating: 4.8

Jackall Squad Minnow 80 SP

Another classic suspender, confusing the monotonous way of life of river predators. Unlike the Megabass Vision Oneten 110, the Jackall Squad Minnow 80 SP is of interest to both pike and small persistent perch. The word 'minnow' in the name of the plug indicates an obvious hybridity: from the suspender it retains only neutral buoyancy, while the body shape is more like a 'thin fish'.

If the competitor Jackall Squad Minnow 80 SP was intended only for professional anglers, then this lure is aimed mainly at beginners and amateurs who want to master snatch fishing. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most successful samples in its class, worthy of a place in the consolidated rating.

Advantages

  • acceptable price;

  • long service life;

  • balancing vertical and horizontal movements;

  • lure by two methods: yaw and acoustic waves from the blade.

disadvantages

  • not detected.

Megabass Vision Oneten 110

Rating: 4.7

Megabass Vision Oneten

Perhaps one of the most extensive series of lures presented in the ranking of the best. Megabass Vision Oneten 110 belongs to the class of slow-emerging lures designed for high-precision retrieval when catching a cautious predator. Being a classic suspender, it is distinguished by a large body length (about 11 centimeters), a curved back and perfect balancing of the front and tail. It is used mainly by professional anglers, since amateurs, often, cannot afford such an expensive purchase.

Due to swooping movements with a slow ascent and intermittent posting, Megabass Vision Oneten 110 creates the illusion of a fish that has lost its vigilance that it cannot pass by a dangerous predator. The main catch of the wobbler is pike – perch, alas, fail to swing at the size of the bait.

Advantages

  • many options for color schemes (the largest series);

  • a special game reminiscent of the action of a 'fearless' fish;

  • original system of balancers moving in horizontal and vertical directions;

  • high catchability of pike.

disadvantages

  • high price;

  • a clear focus on professional anglers.

Lucky Craft LC 2,5 DRS

Rating: 4.7

Lucky Craft LC 2,5 DRS

Like all cranks of the extensive 'family' of wobblers, Lucky Craft LC 2,5 DRS is famous for showing a radically different game than its closest competitors. A teardrop-shaped fish with flattened sides and a blade under the front part is capable of writing pirouettes, diving and provoking a predator in every possible way at any depth, regardless of the type of fishing. This is facilitated by its floating qualities, comparable to balsa baits.

However, in contrast to them, Lucky Craft LC 2,5 DRS are better suited for attacks by sharp-toothed predators, and are also much more resilient for accidental hits on rocky bottom and hooks on driftwood. The main prey of this krenk most often becomes the river white fish, but the trophy pike shows the greatest 'love' for the bait.

Advantages

  • low price per class;

  • high efficiency when fishing for pike;

  • long-term operation, supported by the increased strength of the material;

  • an abundance of colors suitable for catching river waters.

disadvantages

  • not detected.

The best soft spinning lures

Fox Rage Fork Tail

Rating: 4.9

Fox Rage Fork Tail

Fox Rage Silicone Bait is a unique development that relies on the fish to move specifically when fishing. The characteristic difference between Fork Tail and other series is the refined and bifurcated shape of the tail, thanks to which it manages to exactly repeat the movements of the fry. Depending on the speed of retrieving, the depth of fishing and the overall parameters, the amplitude of the oscillations of the tail part changes greatly, which has a luring effect on large fish.

According to consumers, the performance of Fork Tail allows the fish to be used for several full seasons, up to its complete torture along its entire length or (more frequent) loss of the tail. This is an excellent lure for river and lake fishing, which is preferred by all sharp-toothed and aggressive predators (mainly pike and walleye).

Advantages

  • an adaptive form that changes the range of motion depending on the speed of the drive;

  • high efficiency in low water;

  • an abundance of options for external color;

  • long service life.

disadvantages

  • not identified.

Tackle Industries Super D Swimbait

Rating: 4.8

Tackle Industries Super D Swimbait

A soft and very unpredictable swimbait, which has won a place in the rating due to its atypical appearance and high catchability on rivers. Metal base with axle weight, two tee eyes and one back hook fits into the rubber body of a small fish with an elongated and curled tail. Actually, the last element is the main attracting factor – the spiral silicone tape has the ability to change the speed and amplitude of oscillations depending on the wiring.

According to experts, Super D Swimbait is most often used as a slow-moving bait. A predator, such as a large pike, pike perch or chub, needs only one type of skillfully created fish to make a decision to attack. Unfortunately, the cost of this bait can significantly hit the pockets of amateurs and beginners, so it is not often seen as an element of the hunting collection.

Advantages

  • believable animation of a small fish;

  • variability in the choice of color;

  • three hooks in the base – two tees and one spine.

disadvantages

  • rather high cost;

  • breakage of the soft tail is possible already at the beginning of fishing.
