Bass Lures for Every Spot of Water


Bass Lures Are a Fundamental Part of Fun Fishing

Bass lures, the best ones, are at Fisherman’s Choice Pro Shop. Search and you will find that we have the best selection of bass lures at the best price. Our lures have significant discounts and we feature free shipping on all orders $60 and over. To get you started with bass lures, there are three basic types that are fundamental and anybody fishing for bass should have these in their tackle box. The three are: plastic worms, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits.

Plastic Worms

They are also made with a specialized, “Salt Release System” that alters their buoyancy over about a thirty-minute period. The salt also makes them yummy to the bass. By altering the buoyancy, they tend to start to float up from the bottom over a 15-minute period which make the waiting bass—bass like to wait a lot—think the Roboworms are alive and getting ready to move on. That makes the bass want to strike. We also carry the Roboworm Rebarb Hook which is a very popular way to fish that lure.

The second fundamental bass lure to include in the top tray of your tackle box is the spinnerbaits. Hildebrandt’s “The Blade” and Hildebrandt’s “Tin Roller” are very popular right now. “The Blade” comes in 1/4-ounce, 3/8-ounce, and 1/2-ounce weights/sizes. They are specifically designed for clear water, where sometimes other spinnerbaits will not produce. Their life-like appearance gets the feeding started on sight. “Tin Roller” comes in 3/4-ounce and 1-ounce sizes. “Tin Roller” is a tournament favorite for slow-rolling to target deep-water fish. It has its own unique action, falls slower, and can be retrieved slower, as well.

The most popular of the crankbaits we have would be the Bomber “FatFree Shad”, especially the Bill Dance model. “FatFree Shad comes in a 3-inch, 3/4-ounce size but there is also a “FatFree Shad Jr.” which is a 2 1/2-inch, 1/2-ounce version. The FatFree Shad is highly responsive and has an ease of retrieve unlike anything you would expect from bait this size that runs at this depth. It is likely the premier, deep-diving crankbait on the market.

Rods and Reels to Match

If you only had one choice of rod and reel to use with these popular lures, it would have to be a baitcasting rod and reel setup including the E21 Carrot Stix, a 6-foot 9-inch moderate action rod. The reel to accompany it would be Shimano ReelsCurado E Series CU 200 E7. The combination of these two elements makes a great setup to fish the fundamental bass lures. Add to that a good quality monofilament or fluorocarbon line in the reel and you have a high-quality, but economical rig for years of enjoyment. Probably the line we would most recommend would be the Sunline Super Sniper in 10 to 12 pound test. This line is a 100% fluorocarbon line with a proven track record. The line comes in clear for near invisibility.

Using Weights

Crankbaits and spinnerbaits do not need weights, but when fishing plastic worms you need to weight them down. When fishing Carolina rig, Texas rig or Dropshots on the worms you can use either the Tru-Tungsten on the rig or dropshots if you prefer that.

The Full Kit

With these lures, the rod and reel, line, and weights, you can cover the entire water column from the shallows to the deep water. In the shallows, you have a couple of great spinnerbaits, for the overhang drops and ledges and deeper water you have a great crankbaits, and for the deepest water and bottoms you have the Roboworm.
