Cheap Savage Gear Lures

Post by tootall on Fri May 28, 2010 2:18 am

Dunno if you know guys but Chapmans angling are doing a lot of the savage gear stuff (4-Play/Deviators etc) for 3.99 at the mo. Considering i paid 10 for my 4-plays a year ago you can't go wrong at those prices:

its a bit of balancing act really, on one hand you have the better lures which cost a few bob but have much better action, you also have to think that these are hand made and fully tested by their builder who's rep is built on making a qulity lure which runs true.
on the other hand you have the cheaper end which are mass produced so the cares not quite there. some of these have great actions but they can be inconsistant.
a good tip is to run the cheaper stuff through till you get a good idea where the clear water is, and where the snags are. unfotunatly thre snags are often where the pike are and where rivers are concerened the bottoms always changing anyway

oh well its only money Wink

Neil has hit it on the head really Dave, good lures cost money but you dont have to spend a fortune to catch Pike the likes of rapala, savage gear and pro logic all do lures that cost 5-10 quid which is pretty good. I have a small green plug that I bought from America that cost less than 3 quid I have literally caught over 150 fish on it both Pike and Perch, I also have lures that cost 30 X that amount that have caught less than 20 fish so dont be too worriede about buying cheap lures just check the hooks and slpit rings for quality first Wink

Woodys really the best one on this,although I do a bit myself Wink
If you stick to the brands he named above you wont go wrong at all, I can 100% vouch for both savage gear and salmo lures, both are what I'd say were idiot proof lures, in the respect that you could know next to nothing about lure fishing,clip it on,cast out,retrieve however you fancy,and have a dam good chance of hooking into something.
In the early stages of lure fishing,you wont need to worry about what hooks,or what split rings really,as an "off the shelf" savage,salmo or rapala lure are fitted with quality components,like the eagle claw trebles,and super strong split rings.
as you progress with you fishing tho, your bound to get into making your own jerk-bait traces,and therefor will need to know different breaking strains/diameter wires, lb'age of swivels and so on, but for now,take on board what the woodchucker advises,and you wont go wrong Wink

I should have also answered your bit about what you were looking for, If I understand your question, then when you buy lures, they'll say whether they're a surface lure/floating, slow sinker,sinker, or with spoons you already know they're gunna sink fast,so are suited to deeper water,and getting down to where the fish are. So depending on the type of water you intend to chuck them into (shallow/deep/canal/river/lake etc) you have to select the appropriate lure for that given situation. IE: you would'nt really clip on a heavy spoon to fish in a river only 5ft deep with heavy weed coverage (unless...it was fitted with weedless trebles that is Wink ) and you also would clip a surface lure on in the dead of winter fishing an 80ft deep lake,so its all about having the right lure,for the area/season you choose to fish.
I hope that make some kind of sense scratch

If the hooks look cheap and weak then they probably are, replace them with hooks that are like for like in size and you will be fine, get a set of pliers on the hook and give them a good solid pull, if the split ring stays put and solid then they will be fine if there is any splitting or give in them, replace them at once.

What too by is a bit of a nightmare because what works on one water does not always work on another, for example, if you use a large deep diving plug on a canal then it will snag up all the time, using a plug that dives to 3ft over 100ft on Windermere would be pointless, so pick lures that fit the venues you fish, once you have sorted that out then you can think about size and colour affraid
Size wise i would stay small, the reason for this is that you will always have a chance of taking Pike, Perch, Chub and Trout but if you use larger lure you will single out Pike alone which is not what lure fishing is all about, dont get me wrong I love catching big Pike but if you offer me 30-40 fish with an odd double thrown in or a 20lb Pike, then I would take the numbers every time becasue its all about the take, the first moment when the rod bucks in you hards or a fish comes up from behind and swallows a lure so quickley that everything goes slack is what its all about.
Colour cand be a personal thing but its worth having a bright yellow/orange or green lure for dark and coloured water and some natural Perch, Roach colours for clear water, but dont be affraid to use bright colours in clear water because sometmes they work as well, the Pike will let you know whats working when you get it right Wink

i see what you mean im thinking of having a go up and down the canal outside my appartment would a normal spinning rod and a standard reel coupled up with 10lb line and a trace be sufficient and safe to get me off the mark??
