Spoons are effective fishing lures in every season. They also catch any game fish that feed upon bait fish.
Crank baits are plugs designed primarily to imitate bait-fish and crawfish. They must be actively reeled in to activate them.
Jigs are a top choice for year-round action. There is no wrong season to fish them.
The Carolina Rig is perhaps my favorite plastic worm rig. It allows one to fish through heavy structure and weed beds without catching much moss and weeds.
The Texas rig is fished the same as the Carolina rig, but the swivel and leader is omitted altogether. A cone-shaped sliding weight is placed right in front of the worm’s head.
