Fishing Plastic Baits
By William D. Anderson
Plastic Worms and Tube Baits are some of the most popular baits around. There are many different types of plastic baits that come in many shapes and sizes. So how do you choose the right one? Some have salt impregnated tails, bio-scents, rattles, flash; and some claim to out fish live bait. All of them will catch fish at one time or another. So how do you know which one to throw on any given day?
A trip to your local tackle store will quickly show you that plastic
baits come in more colors than there are in the rainbow. Many people
swear by certain colors while others don�t give it much thought at all.
Fish see more contrast than color so you want to give them something
that seems natural to their environment, and something they can see
against the background of their environment. When in doubt, go with
darker or natural colors. The same can also be said about scent. Let�s
face it; if a plastic worm that smells exactly like a can of 10-w30
motor oil will catch a fish, they aren�t going to be very picky about
other scents. Many of the colors, claims, and other gimmicks you see
on the packages are designed to catch fishermen and not fish.
