Lure selection

Post by Kev Haworth 2210 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:34 pm

I'm looking at starting to fish the drains near Southport and would welcome some advice on what lures to use on these waters.

I will be deadbaiting in the future, but for now would love to be able to lure fish.

Are there any that work better than others, or is it the old tale that some lures catch anglers more than fish?

Thanks in advance

Spinnerbaits and twitched minnowbaits used to do OK for me on the Sluice.

Thanks, Dave.

I'll have a look for some of those online.

Thanks for the advice.

Is there a base colour selection to go for? What works on an overcast day but not on a bright day?

Start out with white spinnerbaits silver blades and black ones with copper or orange blades. Silver minnow baits and perch ones. Those colours should see you OK in any conditions.
