It is often said that we anglers buy lures because they catch our eyes more than fish. Today’s wealth of technologies and advanced production methods are so exact at cloning our baits from silicon, metals, balsa and even scenting them realistically that it boggles our minds. There are multitudes of lure manufacturers producing high quality designs helping us achieve better results. We can, perhaps, improve our fishing away from the water by learning things through free online fishing games.
Our only preferences when deciding on any fishing hook sizes, lure sizes, colours, weights, depend on how lighting, weather and temperature conditions are on the day. Also, how heavy or light our fishing tackle will be for our predicted species, all add up to the major deciding factors in choosing the right lures.
For those who relish the sport of Mahi-mahi, or Dorado as they are better known, the choice for good fishing lures can be refined to lures representing their natural diet of flying fish. The most consistent types of these are soft bait jigs in a range of fishes and squid, but medium to large crank baits are equally enticing to these beautiful and delicious game fish. Trolling and spinning are the best methods for getting action with them and if you decide to use any ballyhoo or squid, make sure to keep your baits moving.
Baiting the area with chum or a net filled with live sardines will draw Mahi-mahi close enough for the fly-fishing purists. Taking them on large brightly coloured flies will delight any angler in attempting to subdue their acrobatics and raw power.
Do your best to research the right lures for your part of the world and try not to be tempted for anything other than lures that catch fish alone.
