At a Glance: Hard Baits

Most hard baits were originally carved from wood, which has been mostly replaced by plastics in modern lure-making, while metals are still in use for other specific lure styles. Unlike natural bait and even soft baits, hard baits are made to be durable enough to withstand the bites and fights which come with multiple fishing trips. Hard baits come in a huge variety of colors and sizes, often within the specific lure series, let alone as a tackle category. These options are geared towards specific types of predatory fish and their natural forage, as well as specific conditions in which you may be fishing. Fishing conditions which should be taken into consideration may include vegetation, water clarity, depth, temperatures, and use in freshwater or saltwater. Specific types of hard baits are stickbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, swimbaits, jigging lures and blade baits and topwater lures. Each type of lure will suit specific tactics and styles, while often versatile enough for multiple applications and tactics. Stickbaits, crankbaits, and swimbaits excel when cast, but are also very effective when trolled. Jigging lures and blade baits can absolutely be cast or even trolled, but work best in vertical presentations such as ice fishing or piers and boat fishing. FishUSA offers the best selection of hard baits for the Great Lakes, the entire Ice Belt, northern glacial lakes, deep water reservoirs, southern lakes, and rivers, as well as inshore, coastal, and tropical saltwater fishing.
