Three Best Lures for Bass Fishing Beginners

Be Nice to Newbies: Bass Fishing Beginners

By Ben Team

Because bass fishing is a wonderful hobby and we all benefit from greater interest in the activity, you should always take the opportunity to introduce beginners to the world of artificial lures, fishing beginnersand to the greatest gamefish to ever swim.

But remember the confusion you felt when first trying to learn about lures, rods, techniques, lines and so on?  Do your best to help set up your coworker, child or spouse for success by teaching them the basics of lure selection, giving them the best chance at feeling a tight line.

You have to keep things simple and select a lure that is both easy to use and effective.

You want to avoid crankbaits and other lures prone to snagging and tie something on for them that they can use without much hassle. You want to set up your fishing beginner with an all-around spinning outfit (or a spin-casting reel, if you have one available) rather than a specialized rod and reel, which rules out giant swimbaits and most finesse-based techniques.  You also want them to be able to cast easily, so cumbersome Carolina rigs or drop-shot set ups are not ideal.

After ruling out those lures that won’t work well, you are left with three awesome choices.
