Hello, everyone! Today we’re going to be talking about my top 5 favorite lures to use for saltwater fishing! I currently mostly use lures as opposed to live bait, though I did throw bait earlier while I was growing up. It absolutely 100% works if that’s your go-to for wade fishing or kayaking, but it definitely gets expensive if you keep going that route.
I have a few criteria for this top 5 list, starting off with how easy it is to use. Nothing special like a unique rod or a difficult-to-use retrieve; only lures that work very simply. Number two, they have to catch fish obviously. The first up is Gulp! This stuff is pretty much pure bait but it works in almost every situation. You can absolutely use a swim mullet with Gulp, like if I’m going after trout and redfish, as well as a few others like hardheads. You can couple this with a jighead, but it’s not necessary.
Number two is Gold Spoon, which has probably the simplest process. Throw it out there, then reel it in! You can change the speeds or jerk on it if you think it might help, but simply reeling it in does the trick most of the time.
Third up is Soft Plastic Paddle Tail. This is my number one producer day after day, which you can use with a jighead or rig it weedless with a twist lock hook. The slower you reel, the deeper it will go as well. There is a wide variety of these products that I will be giving away, so stay tuned!
Next up is artificial shrimp, which definitely catch as much as the other successful lures in saltwater. These easy shrimp slay because you can truly take the live shrimp off and use a popping cork for comparable results.
Wake Bait is the final lure I’m reviewing, and it is one of my favorites along with being very simple. This is top of the line for replacing top waters and crankbaits, which are also easy to use, but shallow marshes under 3 feet might get stuck where this will not.
