23 best lures for pike

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

How to choose a good pike lure

Since pike is one of the most common predators in domestic reservoirs, the question of the methods of catching it and the baits used remains relevant. As in any other case, the choice of bait includes a number of very specific and important nuances, the exact observance of which gives the user a guarantee to purchase a suitable model. In the case of spoons, it is most advisable to proceed from the principle of seasonality, and consider the most suitable samples with a bias towards these restrictions.

  1. Winter. Despite the fact that many anglers prefer to use live bait gutters for winter fishing, ice trolling remains the classic method of replenishing the stock of trophies. At this time, the pike is actively taking single-color and simple vertical spoons (for brass, gold or silver) 50-100 millimeters in length. From the point of view of shape, the most optimal choice would be a droplet with a width of about 30 millimeters, but as an extraordinary experiment, you can experiment. In times of famine, the pike can rush to any bait.
  2. Spring. This time of year is characterized by increased activity of the toothed predator and gradual preparation for spawning. As in winter, the lack of food in water bodies forces the pike to follow a tough instinct and attack almost anything. However, you should not blindly resort to using rotating models – the intensity of their movement can easily frighten the fish. It is best to give preference to small (50-80 millimeters) oscillating lures of a neutral color, which faithfully reproduce the colors of standard inhabitants of a particular reservoir.
  3. Summer. It is not yet the peak of activity, but it is quite a well-fed time when the pike can only be lured with larger prey. Logically, the most suitable baits at this time will be spoons and spinners from 100 to 150 millimeters long. In addition, a large amount of pike goes to grassy places, where the most productive option would be to use medium-sized spoons (about 70-80 millimeters).
  4. Fall. The most active time of the year, when the pike begins to enter the state of zhora, and the reserves of plant food in the water gradually decrease. At this time, a predator can be seduced by absolutely any spoon bait – be it a small spoiler or a hyperactive rotator. The optimal lengths are from 30 to 70 millimeters with the possibility of catching trophies with the largest spinners in the collection.

The best spinners for pike

Mepps AGLIA LONG No. 3

Rating: 4.9

Mepps Aglia Long No. 00

If there is a spoon in the world that can outshine the glory of Black Fury, then it must invariably be the Agila Long model from the same Mepps company. In this case, we will only talk about the third numbered modification, the weight of which was 11.5 grams. Slightly surpassing the 'Furia' in price, this lure has a comparatively simple design, but is capable of pulling large, trophy fish from the depths without harm to its own integrity. Its petal does not differ in any pretentious colors, and for a long time remained completely clean. But a series of updates forced Mepps to make one small but great addition – a simple holographic tape sticker doubled the bite (in internal tests).

According to consumers, Agila Long No. 3 is the unofficial flagship of its series, as it can be used for catching large predators (such as pike, pike perch, chub, trout) and for catching little brave men (perch, ide). You may not be too fond of fishing with spinners, but you must have at least one representative of this series in your collection.

Advantages

  • universal dimensions, allowing to catch any (by size) predator;

  • gradual (albeit reluctant) update of the appearance;

  • low cost level;

  • high popularity in the circles of domestic fishermen;

  • simple but very robust and reliable construction;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Mepps BLACK FURY

Rating: 4.8

Mepps Black Fury

Black Fury from Mepps is considered a real legend among domestic fishing enthusiasts, as it has more than once emerged victorious from battles with trophy pike. This series is subdivided into only 4 modifications, the weight of which varies from 3.5 to 8 grams, but even this number of options is enough to adapt to different conditions of reservoirs. The success of this line is rightfully considered the successful combination of black with gold, silver and bronze. Such a mix creates a real riot of colors with intensive rotation of the petal even on the weakest wiring, which does not go unnoticed even by the most motionless predator. As an additional element of stimulating the fish to attack, there is a red bead in the axial part of the spoon, as well as several bright points in the central part of the petal.

Like the previous nominee, Mepps Black Fury boasts an extremely low price level that is guaranteed to satisfy any angler. It is simple in construction, unassuming in handling and very catchy to the most diverse predator, which is the component of its deafening success.

Advantages

  • high popularity of spinners throughout the neighboring countries and the territory of Russia;

  • very low price;

  • variability of sizes and a sufficient number of working colors;

  • high structural strength, the ability to drag large predators from the water;

disadvantages

  • not identified.

Blue Fox Super Vibrax

Rating: 4.7

BLU E FOX Super Vibrax

The gorgeous and extremely noticeable Super Vibrax from Blue Fox is ranked for its high catchability even in the hardest biting waters. Shows an equally beautiful game, regardless of the size, which is why it can be used for pike fishing (albeit of different sizes) in its three variations. The smallest spinner in the series weighs only 6 grams, while the largest weighs no more than 11 grams. In this case, there is no need to talk about flight data, but when immersed in water, the spinner begins to show itself from an exceptionally good side. The pleasant light print on the face of the Super Vibrax petal creates a captivating play of light that no normal predator can resist. The bullet weight on the axle provides optimal drag without braking, but, on the contrary, giving the rotation more intensity and speed.

Quite recently, the official update of the external conditions of this great series took place, because of which it leapt with new colors and did not add at all in the value parameter. Super Vibrax remains one of the cheapest lures on the market to this day, which has ensured (and continues to provide) its popularity at all times.

Advantages

  • very low price;

  • high catchability, regardless of the speed of the current;

  • streamlined shape of the central part, which gives an advantage in terms of petal acceleration;

  • updated design, great data luring;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Daiwa Silver Creek Spinner

Rating: 4.6

Daiwa Silver Creek Spinner R

One of the most successful forms of spinners in the last few years just couldn't pass up the top rankings. The Daiwa Silver Creek Spinner is the best solution to the problem of luring without introducing temporary annoying elements (flies, etc.), based on the 'washing down' of the load in the form of fish fry. There are as many as 11 varieties of this spoon, but they all work as one in a similar manner. This is due to a simple balance: with a weight of 6 grams, the body of the spinner is shorter than that of the 18-gram model (the largest in the series). The main emphasis in the design was placed on customization of the fish as the main attracting link when approaching the pike. The petal is secondary here, and acts as a bait only at large distances.

However, we cannot fail to note the presence of perforations on the Silver Creek Spinner petals. 5 through holes not only increase the rotational speed, but also create an accompanying acoustic effect that alerts the predator regardless of the distance. The only “puncture” Daiwa happened at the price setting stage – the final price tag is too high for ordinary consumers. But, looking at the front of the work done, everything seems more than fair.

Advantages

  • two elements act as bait at different distances (the petal – at the far, the fish-weight – at the close);

  • high catchability in stagnant water;

  • 11 modifications within one series;

  • optimal combination of price and quality;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Myran agat

Rating: 4.5

Myran agat

One of the cheapest lures on the market is also one of the most catchy, which is less and less common at the present stage. Apparently, there is something in the design of the Myran Agat that awakens the sharp hunting instincts in the predator. The narrow petal makes it possible to use this spinner in fast currents where trout and pike are the dominant trophies. As many as three models of this bait are supplied for sale, with a weight ranging from 3-30 grams. This division is done very well: the angler will always be able to pick up a spinner for fishing at a certain deepening horizon.

The Myran Agat petal has several color options, but most often neutral samples painted in gold or silver are on sale in retail stores. Of course, you can always aim to look for more elaborate colors, however, what is available is quite enough for effective fishing. Due to the low visibility, beginners rarely resort to choosing this spinner, so amateur anglers become its main audience. However, we recommend that you consider buying, regardless of your skill level, because the results of fishing are guaranteed to please you.

Advantages

  • the ability to choose a model in three weight variations;

  • the presence of a red fly on the hook;

  • a high degree of catchability (from pike to zander and salmon);

  • very low price;

disadvantages

  • mediocre design.

Lucky John Shelt Blade 03

Rating: 4.5

Lucky John Shelt Blade 03

Lucky John's Shelt Blade 03 is a successful attempt to impose a fight on the ever-leading Mepps Black Fury, and, if possible, overshadow him. Whether it is possible to realize this idea or not is not a question for us. However, we are sure that this spoon deserves its share of fame (even through its placement in the rating). The successful combination of dark and bright elemental field on the petal creates a very 'sticky' play of light when rotating, which cannot be passed by the predatory gaze. Having interested the prey, this lure sets in motion the second element of attraction – a bright fly, fixed on the hook not with a simple knot, but with the help of a bright metal clamp. By adding two terms, the angler receives a bite, the effectiveness of which half depends on his further individual actions.

Actually, the main 'trick' of Shelt Blade 03 is that it gives you the opportunity to show a grain of your talent, confidently beating the fish at the stage of hooking and eyeliner. Such a model is very inexpensive, and therefore it is widespread among fishermen in our country.

Advantages

  • very low price;

  • very intense game, encouraging the predator to react instantly;

  • robust construction with tungsten weight beads;

  • double alluring effect (coloring + front sight);

disadvantages

  • poor flight performance.

Kuusamo Kuf

Rating: 4.4

Kuusamo Kuf

The 7g Kuusamo Kus-Lippa 7 spinner is one of the most beautiful pike lures ever and performs well at all drive speeds. It has a textured petal with a catchy color and bright points that serve as a reference point for an attack. It starts up from the moment the body is completely submerged under water, regardless of the speed at which the winding starts. For additional stimulation of the pike, the tee part is equipped with a bright red front sight, which gradually, with a high intensity of movement, focuses attention on itself.

As noted by users, from the point of view of the advisability of buying Kuusamo Kus-Lippa 7 does not cause absolutely any skepticism. This spoon is successfully used by experienced anglers, but, alas, has not yet reached big sports. However, this fact does not say absolutely nothing: experts recommend that beginners replenish their collection with this bait in order.

Advantages

  • unique texture of the teardrop-shaped petal;

  • the presence of a front sight on the hook;

  • the petal starts to rotate at a low speed;

  • a universal lure that can work both in the current and in still water;

disadvantages

  • not found.

The best spinners for pike

Kuusamo Professor 3

Rating: 4.9

Kuusamo Professor

The adverb 'Professor' has come to this famous spinner series for a reason – there is both a sure sign of superiority and a bit of Finnish pun. This bait hints at the fact that competitors need to learn a lot in order to reach the same level of performance and skill. Limiting itself to just two modifications for 9 and 12 grams (with the same length of 75 millimeters), Kuusamo Professor 3 covers all the needs of anglers in a good lure for fishing in open water or in overgrown places. The fact is that a double (or single, depending on the type) hook has a safety whisker that protects the spoon from accidental hook on snags or algae.

As for the visual part, here the model presents a surprise in the form of as many as 20 color options (some of which, unfortunately, are not available on the market). At the base of the hook is a red rubber insert that serves as a guide for a predator attack. In terms of price, Professor 3 is not the cheapest sample in the collection, but it fully justifies the price tag both constructively and purely outwardly. He has not yet received a huge prevalence in the ranks of newcomers, but amateurs zealously advise their inexperienced comrades to make such a purchase.

Advantages

  • outstanding results of fishing in clear and overgrown water;

  • acceptable price;

  • high-quality coating that holds without fading and abrasion for 4-5 seasons;

  • good balance of softness / stiffness on the non-hook mustache;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Rublex orkla

Rating: 4.8

Rublex orkla

The lure, which consistently occupies high places in ratings and reviews (including ours), is a real classic of pike fishing with a spoiler. As in the case of the Wiliams Wabler (but to a lesser extent) or Abu garcia toby , Orkla has a wide range of 6 modifications weighing from 8 to 24 grams and lengths from 57 to 81 millimeters. The S-shaped body shape of the spoon provides its spasmodic dynamic movement, from a distance resembling a swimming fry and encouraging the predator to follow it automatically. In the last phase (attack phase), the advantage of artificial bait is crowned with a sharp tee, the hookiness of which is not lost even after several seasons.

As noted by users, Rublex Orkla is very good at catching stagnant bodies of water and setting the tone for medium and large pike. The only full-fledged drawback of this spinner can be considered the high cost, unjustifiably overstated in the long history of its existence on the market.

Advantages

  • very high quality fittings;

  • six modifications in the range;

  • an alluring game reminiscent of the movement of a fleeing fry;

  • solid design of models, long service life of the coating;

disadvantages

  • unreasonably high price.

Williams wabler

Rating: 4.8

WILLIAMS WABLER

Another representative of the oscillator rating, the internal reserve of modifications of which includes more than 7 different models. During its existence (over 75 years), overgrowing with new custom ideas, Wabler made a phenomenal leap in its own popularity even among domestic fishermen. The variety of textures (more than 10), color schemes (more than 50), sizes (from 25 to 102 millimeters in length) and weights (from 1.8 to 28 grams) make it impossible to see the typical movement of the bait, since each individual combination gives a unique result.

The attitude of current consumers to Williams Wabler can be expressed unequivocally: this spoon suits all layers of the fishing society to a significant extent. And the point here is not so much in price indicators, as in the durability of a single piece of hardware and catchability in almost any part of a large country.

Advantages

  • an unimaginable number of spinner variations within one series;

  • multidimensional movement, depending on the texture of the body and overall dimensions;

  • low price;

  • effective bait for catching almost all river predators (but to a greater extent it is the pike);

disadvantages

  • a very difficult process of choosing the right model (diversity affects).

Mepps Syclops

Rating: 4.7

Mepps Syclops

Another representative of the French company Mepps, which got into the rating due to its great popularity in neighboring countries. Actually, it was from there that Syclops first came to domestic water areas. Simple and practical, this line (for more than 20 years of existence) has managed to acquire a whole scattering of models weighing from 3.5 to 26 grams and corresponding lengths from 40 to 90 millimeters. The main 'highlight' in the structure of these lures is the indirect S-shape, which allows them to be used both in stagnant water and on reservoirs with shallow currents without compromising the attractiveness of the game.

The role of an additional alluring element in Mepps Syclops went to a holographic sticker that carries the meaning of the texture of the fish's body. Also, in the hope of securing the attention of the predator when attacking on one element, lures of individual dimensions are equipped with red cambric. All of these elements were introduced into the model gradually, and in the end they formed the same excellent spinner that receives the admiration of thousands of users.

Advantages

  • an abundance of options to choose from (in size and design);

  • the possibility of fishing in stagnant bodies of water and on the current;

  • low price;

  • the use of additional elements to lure a predator in some models;

  • wide popularity in Russia;

  • external verisimilitude of the spinner, created due to the 3D-eye, relief and holography;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Abu garcia toby

Rating: 4.6

Abu garcia toby

Despite the original curves of the body and the presence of wings at the upper part of the body, Abu Garcia Toby is a model that is very close in meaning to the Acme Kastmaster. With fast dribbling, the water resistance alternately settles the left and right sides of the spoon, and the wings act as a kind of swing amplitude amplifier. As a result of this movement, the oscillator begins to resemble a corkscrew moving along a helical line (albeit fictitious).

To enhance the luring effect, Abu Garcia decided to make a double body color of the spoon, but not in all color variations. As for the size ranges, there are as many as five in the Toby line, the weight of which varies from 7 to 30 grams. Nevertheless, all of them, in one way or another, are sharpened for fishing for pike, simultaneously catching other predatory brethren in the form of perches, ides and rare pike perch.

Advantages

  • very low price (in comparison with analogues);

  • original movement at different speeds of wiring;

  • huge variability of sizes and color schemes;

  • high fishing efficiency (improved with minor modernization by clinging the fly to the hook);

disadvantages

  • not found.

Acme Kastmaster

Rating: 4.6

Acme Kastmaster

The Acme Kastmaster is one of the most extensive line of lures in the entire fishing market, with a huge credit of trust among professional anglers and sportsmen. To date, the expanded list of this bait has as many as 10 models, the difference between which lies in both overall dimensions and design features. Weighing 2.25 grams, the smallest lure is only 32 millimeters long, luring a predator (mainly perch) with intense play even at low drive speeds. In turn, the largest model of a spoon (SW1151) with a weight of 21 grams and a length of 6 centimeters, in addition to coloring, has a front sight installed on the tee, large enough to completely hide it under itself.

Quite expectedly, Acme Kastmaster became one of the leaders in its category, and the only really significant stone in its direction was the dispute about the appropriateness of the price. Yes, you won't see painstaking work on external data here, however, this sample is not too similar to outright hack-work. Disputes aside, let's say: Kastmaster definitely deserves a place in the rating, and will become one of the most conditional spinners both in the hands of a pro and in a beginner's collection.

Advantages

  • huge variability in the choice of models (as many as 10 different modifications in the range);

  • the presence of a dozen options for customizing the spoon;

  • equipment of the older models of the series with bright flies;

  • good alluring abilities, the presence of original shades of the game;

disadvantages

  • Slightly overpriced.

Abu Garcia Pike 40

Rating: 4.5

Abu Garcia Pike 40

Spoon from a Swedish manufacturer, sharpened exclusively for catching trophy pike. It has a complex body shape with small bends and thinning, due to which it can achieve large vibration amplitudes on fast leadings and when working on a stream.

All spinners of the Abu Garcia Pike 40 make … oddly enough, 40 grams, with a length of 110 millimeters. Recently, the series has undergone a large-scale update, during which the accessories have been replaced and several new colors have been added. Taking into account the addition, the color set has expanded to 8 options, which, in general, is not very dense. Taking into account all the relevant characteristics (material costs, finishing, etc.), the cost of this bait turns out to be many times more profitable than that of competitors. The Pike 40 is preferred mostly by professional fishermen who recommend the spoon to all strata of the fishing community.

Advantages

  • favorable, in terms of production costs, price;

  • an original form that allows you to show a change in the game depending on the type of wiring;

  • rather large size, allowing to weed out small predators;

  • good flight data;

disadvantages

  • scarcity of choice.

Smith pure

Rating: 4.5

Smith pure

One of the few truly high-quality series of lures from the Japanese company Smith, designed to fully meet the needs of anglers in competing lures. Its assortment includes both small 1.5-gram models designed for catching perch, and quite good 18-gram specimens created for dragging a near-trophy pike from the depths. It is noteworthy that according to the initial plans of the Japanese company Pure was supposed to become an exemplary bait for fishing salmon … but, unfortunately, or fortunately, the plan was not fully realized. As a result, each model in the series has acquired its own animation of movement – somewhere a little intense, somewhere in amplitude, but in general, quite interesting.

The only dark spot on Pure's reputation has been that the series has risen in price (over the past few years) almost twice. And everything seems to be not bad: there is efficiency, there is prestige and honor from many experts. However, the price turns away from the spinners, it would seem, the most loyal audience.

Advantages

  • a wide palette of various colors;

  • popularity and priority choice among experts;

  • versatility in terms of catching fish and behavior during posting;

  • an abundance of upgrades in size (from 1.5 to 18 grams of weight and 20-40 millimeters of length, respectively);

disadvantages

  • high price for the entire range of products.

Blue Fox Matrixx Spoon

Rating: 4.5

Blue Fox Matrixx Spoon

The VMC trolling lure is the ideal 'weapon' for catching large toothy predators. It also performs well with more traditional wiring such as stepped with twitching, where it “pulls” the game due to its own weight. Within its series, it is subdivided into 4 size types, the weight of which varies from 10 to 36 grams.

It is noteworthy that a thin mesh of a scaly texture is applied to each spoiler, which makes the body of the spoon look like a real fry. The imitation of movement, reminiscent of unhurried swaying with complete loss of vigilance, adds to the credibility of the picture. The 3D eye was chosen as the point of attack in Matrixx Spoon, which was a very logical and correct decision (of all possible). In the end, users got a decent spinner with an average price, which can be used in absolutely any weather conditions.

Advantages

  • realistic small texture of the body (with micro-relief imitating scales);

  • average level of cost.

  • four size categories within one series (10, 15, 23 and 36 grams);

  • the presence of a 3D eye;

  • efficient movement even at low speeds;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Daiwa Silver Creek Masau

Rating: 4.4

Daiwa Silver Creek Masau

The Silver Creek Masau universal bobbers from one of the leaders in the fishing industry – the Daiwa company – got into the rating due to the excellent combination of appearance and fishing characteristics. With a smoother body than other members of the S.C. line, this lure has excellent flight performance and game stability. The design of the lateral surface is as close as possible (as far as possible) to the real texture of the body of the fry due to the deep and embossed imprint of the scales, the 3D eye, and the lines of division between the body and the head.

The size range of Masau lures includes as many as 4 categories, and differs more in terms of weight. So, the smallest representative of this series weighs 12 grams, while the largest weighs under 30. The variety of this spoon is also given by the abundance of different colors with two or more colors involved. Because of the clearly presented amount of work (colossal), I don't even want to scold Masau for a high price. Yes, with a possible break of the line, you will be very sorry for the (on average) 500 rubles spent, but with a good outcome, the extraction will clearly pay off the total costs.

Advantages

  • excellent design (texture + relief + color);

  • good flight data;

  • an abundance of different sizes in the series;

  • the presence of a 3D eye;

  • high-amplitude alluring movement;

disadvantages

  • not found.

The best non-hook lures for pike

Kuusamo Rasanen

Rating: 4.9

Kuusamo Rasanen

Finnish spoon, which got to the leading position of the rating due to the excellent manifestation of its fishing qualities over many years of use in water. One of the features of the Rasanen series is that it contains a lure with a standard and non-snag structure, which makes it more versatile. Moreover, within their 'piece' of the series, non-hooks are also divided into two classes. The first one has a length of 5 centimeters and weighs 11 grams, has a suspended double on a rivet and a flexible mustache perfectly balanced (in terms of softness / rigidity). The second, in addition to point changes in dimensions (6 centimeters in length and 15 grams in weight), has a bright red bead embedded in the body, which, together with the general design, makes a strong impression on the predator being caught.

Kuusam Rasanen has a whole scattering of small merits, which form that unique style of very catchy spoons. Professionals, amateurs and inexperienced anglers are vying to talk about the superiority of this non-hooks in its class, even despite the rather high nominal price. However, the volume of the catch and the fishing experience are guaranteed to be worth it.

Advantages

  • The optimum ratio of price and quality;

  • good catchability even in heavily overgrown areas;

  • excellent balance of softness / stiffness of the safety mustache;

  • spectacular, complex design, complemented by a red bead (on the largest model);

  • an extensive series that includes two whole varieties of non-engagement;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Blue fox lucius weedless

Rating: 4.8

Blue fox lucius weedless

High performance non-linkage, available on the market in three fundamentally different designs. The lightest specimen, Lucius Weedless, from Black Fox has a 20 gram weight and a riveted single hook with a very flexible safety barb. The middle 26-gram model of the series is equipped with a twin of the same fastening method, the snagging of which is in fact significantly higher than that of the single. The third, largest model of the lure has a double hook suspension design and 36 grams of weight, which provides almost ideal flight performance without the use of an additional weight.

The Blue Fox Lucius Weedless paint job practically sweeps aside the standard use of meager monochromatic colors, limiting itself to perhaps a single model with a silver look. All other options, one way or another, are a mixture of several colors at once with a smooth flow of one into another or clearly defined boundaries. However, on the reservoir they all show themselves exceptionally well – fishing in a grassy place always brings a lot of trophy pike.

Advantages

  • a striking difference between the models in the series, not only in size, but also in design;

  • the possibility of long-distance casting;

  • good luring functions;

  • selection of experts for several fishing seasons;

  • reasonable price of the entire range (in relation to the quality of work);

disadvantages

  • not found.

RB Atom-N

Rating: 4.7

RB Atom-N

The RB Atom-N brass lure is a new word in pike fishing with a non-hook hook. The whole point of this model lies in the original approach to execution. In general, the classic shape is complemented by the play of thicknesses throughout the body of the lure, which creates a deliberate wave-like movement that effectively encourages predators to make a sharp attack. The lure is produced in three dimensions for 7, 10 and 18 grams, the most popular of which were the first two models.

Regarding color, RB Atom-N is also okay. In addition to standard monochromatic or combined colors (like brass, bronze, silver or gold), the lure has a dark and gradient color, made with a smooth transition from red (through yellow) to green. By the standards of the average market price, the cost of N-ki is the most optimal, especially in relation to quality. It rarely tears the hooks and mustaches on them, which is why the service life can be counted for five years.

Advantages

  • high durability (in extreme cases, single hooks are soldered);

  • good alluring abilities tied to movement and appearance;

  • the presence of three size ranges in the series;

  • low cost;

disadvantages

  • not found.

Rapala minnow spoon

Rating: 4.7

Rapala Minnow Spoon RMS05

The famous Finnish lure Rapala Minnow Spoon simply could not pass the rating of the best non-hooks for pike fishing. Featuring realistic customization of the surface to match the real fish, this lure has everything that competitive models always lack a little. It is noteworthy that the method of applying paint to the surface allows you to maintain the appearance condition for many years, albeit in a slightly faded version.

Too perfect to fish in the open, the Minnow Spoon does a great job of avoiding snags and thickets of grass, showing a decent amount of effective holds. With various sizes (from 50 to 100 millimeters), the spoon has equally good flight characteristics due to the prevalence of weight. Given the low cost, the lure often becomes a priority choice for new anglers, which is very rational in terms of ease of handling and replenishment of the collection of catching gear.

Advantages

  • excellent fishing performance in clear water and in overgrown areas;

  • realistic customization for the body of the fish;

  • resistant coating of the outer surface of the spoon;

  • low price;

  • a wide range of products (5 size ranges);

disadvantages

  • not found.

Balzer colonel z weed

Rating: 4.6

Balzer colonel z weed

Blazer's catchy non-hook hit the rating thanks to a strong lure system, tied to a combination of realistic body texture, clockwork movement and striking double hook feathers. Unlike a number of competitors, the design of the Colonel Z Weed is pragmatic and extremely rational. The fact is that a sharp double with a mustache is attached to the body of the spoon not rigidly, but by means of a small bolt, as a result of which the spoon automatically becomes repairable and long-lived. Thanks to this attachment, anglers have the chance to widely vary the hook sizes, thereby significantly affecting the overall weight of the product in the assembly.

As consumers note, the effectiveness of the Colonel Z Weed largely depends on the presence of a bright alluring element. The already meager plumage leaves the spoon in the first days of fishing, exposing the hook and somewhat reducing the excitement of the local fauna.

The best winter lure for pike

Nils master dueler

Rating: 4.9

Nils master dueler

Nils Master's Dueler lures are a sure and effective way to keep your pike consistently during the winter fishing season. Made by hand in three different sizes – 45, 55 and 75 millimeters with a weight of 4, 5 and 9 grams, respectively. Due to the presence of petals in the upper part of the calf, it shows a smooth gliding game with a sheer trolling, very semantic so as not to capture the attention of a predator.

A kind of 'highlight' of this bait is a bright three-color drop in the central part of the hook, which acts as a 'red rag' for a toothed predator (as well as perches and rare influx of pike perch). Dueler's current level of value, even in the smallest variation, is a source of displeasure for many winter anglers, not to mention beginners and inexperienced anglers. Therefore, it turned out that the main audience of this model was professionals and winter athletes performing at the championships in underwater fishing.

Advantages

  • effective attraction due to movement and a bright drop on the tee;

  • several color options;

  • good catchability with steep lure;

  • three standard sizes in the line;

disadvantages

  • the price has almost doubled in recent years.
