River Bass Fishing Lures


Soft plastic crawfish reign supreme when it comes to lures that will catch river bass. Texas-rigged worms with lightweight jigs will effectively slam currents and keep your bait in front of the fish’s nose. The more time you can keep your lure in front a bass's nose, better your chances of landing one. Here are some other lures you might use to catch more fish.

Float wins over everything

For river bass fishing in the St. John's River float is the best. The river has current seams that form in areas with cover, island habitats, and river switches. Many times, the current seams provide plenty of cover for bass to wait on their prey. This means that many times you will catch threadfin sharks. The process of shad-fishing has been challenging for years, but new technology makes it much easier.

Blue Fox spinnerbait

Blue Fox Spinnerbaits are a very popular bait for fishing in rivers. These baits are made from premium components such as VMC hooks that produce consistent, reproducible results. Blue Fox spoons are the most popular spinnerbaits. It is often copied, but never duplicated. This bait is known to produce a bucktail bite. Its compact size makes casting it simple.


Buzzbaits are a great way to catch river bass. Seek out a dying log or grassy bank. Branches and logs will also give you a great spot to fish. To imitate a live baitfish, a plastic frog could be used. Because it is a bigger target, bass will prefer a buzzbait. This lure can be used even in the fall when baitfish are active and plentiful.

The square-bill crankbait is good for shallow water with little structure and cover. This bait's unusual movement can trigger a bite. Bass can also be attracted by the unusual sound of a crankbait smashing into something underwater. The bass will notice the unusual motion and become hooked. The lure might suddenly stop moving so the fish may attempt to take the bait.

Aquatic plants

Although it is important that you keep the vegetation levels low in your water bodies to avoid water pollution and eutrophication, excessive vegetation can have a detrimental effect on your fish habitat. The flow of water can be blocked by aquatic plants. These plants can also clog water plants intakes and power plants, reduce dissolved Oxygen levels, and reduce the number of fish in the lake. Regardless of the benefits of aquatic plants, some people may question the need for such plants.

Falling water levels

River bass fishing is not a sport that you would expect to see a drastic change in the water level. Changes in water levels have an effect on bass behavior, especially those that are in shallow water. Because of multiple factors, fall bass movements can be complicated. To get a better idea of what to expect, you should consider the following facts about fall bass movement. First, keep in mind that fall bass are generally less aggressive than spring.

Use of lures

Choosing which baits to use for river bass fishing depends on the type of fish you're after. The type of bait you use will also affect the size of the lure. Smaller spinnerbaits, with a little grub on the one arm and a small spinning on the other, tend to catch more fish. They also have fewer hangups. They are also easier to unhook making them an excellent choice in tidal waters.

How can I tell if my lures are working?

You should watch out for movement in your lure when it is thrown into the water. If you observe movement, your lure may be working properly.

What is the best season to fish?

Fishing is best done in the early morning or late evening. During these times, the fish are feeding and moving around.

Is it safe?

No matter where you buy your fish, always ask the seller if they have a freshness date on their fish. You can eat fish that has not expired if they have no expiration dates. You shouldn't eat fish that smells or looks old.

Where can you fish the most?

You can fish near rivers, lakes, streams and other freshwater bodies. These areas are rich in fish food.

What distance should I fish from the shore?

The further you are from the shore the more likely it is that you will catch fish. However, this also increases the chances of getting wet.

How can I get started with fishing?

If you are new to fishing, there are several things that you need to know before you go out on the water. First, you need to learn about the different types of fish in your area. You also need to know where they like to hang out to find them. After you've identified the best areas to search for fish, practice casting. This is when you learn how to cast a lure from the air, and then let it fall onto the surface of water. Practice makes perfect!

Do you need a bobber to fish?

Yes. You use a bobber to prevent the bait from moving when you are fishing. The bobber is made up of the float as well as the line. When casting a lure, you attach the hook to the end of the line, then cast out the line and let go of the rod. If you don't use a bobber, the lure may sink into the water, which makes it difficult for the fish to bite.


  • It is estimated there are at least 2 million people who go fishing in California each year. (californiayachtsales.com)
  • You likely have a fish hooked if the bobber moves erratically for over 5 seconds. (tailoredtackle.com)
  • For most freshwater species you are most likely to target when first starting out, a reel size of 20 to 30 should be more than enough! (strikeandcatch.com)
