LURE FISHING is one of the most exciting ways of catching predatory fish. Pike, perch, bass, trout. . . there is an endless list of fish that will gobble these plastic, metal, or wood creations, mistaking them for real fish.
There are three types of lures. Spinners and spoons are usually made of metal and either wobble or spin through the water in the same way as real fish. Plugs are made of wood or plastic and work in a number of ways: along the surface of the water, in mid-water, or deep along the bottom.

On a spinner, a metal blade rotates as the lure is pulled through the water. The rotation sends out vibrations and the blade catches the light, so the lure looks like a small fish. Sometimes tassels of plastic or wool are added to entice the fish further.
