Best lure for Silure for vertical or linear fishing.
We use large soft lures, mounted on jig heads. The Silure (silurus glanis) is a territorial fish that bites large spoons. To do so, we retrieve them in a linear way near the bottom or mid-depth temperature is warmer. This freshwater game fish offers sportfishing techniques such as fishing with lipless lures that draw ferocious bites. Silure is a predator fish capable of detecting danger better than most fish. It can learn very well and come wary of the wrong sound and vibration. Thus for Silure fishing on bodies of water with high fishing pressure (river in urban areas), we prefer silent lures. Indeed, the noisy rattles can become repulsive on this wary fish.
Silure fishing with soft lures: which are the best to choose?
To begin with, Silure, although capable of learning quickly, remains an opportunistic predator. At certain times, vertical fishing with shad is the key to success. We choose a handful of soft shad lures with a different action. Small paddles (tail), allow fine vibrations that are great to the mood of apathetic fish seeking small prey.
A small shad mounted on an iron-strong jig head allows you to cover wide areas by simply supporting the lure. This vertical approach is very precise, like prospecting a backwater or the back of a bridge pile.
Some silure-fishermen, in the river, are familiar with these negative reactions on large soft lures. Indeed, it is with lures designed for zander fishing that we catch by chance a silure.
In this game, it's time to use a fine lure when nothing else works. We optimize the weight of the jig head to the narrow and long profile of the finesse shad. A weight as light as you can get away with is always the best option. If you are fishing during high water, the turbulence created by the strong currents will dampen the vibrations of your soft lures.
For this reason, using a chatterbait to boost the rolling and vibration of a soft lure is an excellent alternative. If you're fishing a river with heavy cover, creature baits and crayfish are a good choice on a Texas rig.
It is a lure that offers a medium size, with subtle vibrations, effective on Silure. In conclusion, fishing with soft lures for Silure allows you to alternate between fast prospecting and precise technical fishing in a vertical position.
Hard lures for fast action
First of all, crankbait is a great lure to find groups of Silure quickly. Silure will gang up in inaccessible places. The long-billed crankbait, Deep diver, allows access to the deeper water near the bottom. The crankbait's lip acts as a deflector, protecting its treble hooks from snags. We match the noisy models with balls, called rattles, with silent models better on days of inactivity of the fish. Secondly, there are harbaits called jerkbait minnow. Among these, the longbill models are called longbill minnow. This type of diving baits is a godsend to prospect the rocky breaks. Finally, the lipless crankbait targets big silures that can be fished with a vertical technique or by casting in linear retrieves.
Finesse fishing with a hard lure
First of all, it is not necessary to use big soft lures to select big silure. It is frequent to observe big silure to turn down the seemingly best offering on the screen of our depth-finder. In this respect, it is while fishing for zander in the river that we sometimes accidentally catch big silure with small lures. This is due to the high fishing pressure with large lures. Certainly, they are used to see regularly these big lures, especially in rivers where the fishing pressure is intense.
For this reason, there is a hard lure of the most effective: the vibrating blade. It's a mini vibration lure that swims silently. In this way, small hard lures, such as the lipless crankbait or the vibrating blade, can make the wariest silure bite.
This same type of lure is effective for winter fishing, in vertical, by simply supporting the lure during the drift of the boat. To conclude, the sizes of lures count, do not forget small models, fishing from a boat with electronics will teach you a lot.
