If you had to fish one swim for a day and were faced with the task of catching as much as possible then a floatfished livebait would probably be the best best. If you had to fish one water for a day though, livebaiting is less attractive. Carting long rods, alarms, pods, buckets and chairs around cripples your mobility and you might, at the most, fish ten swims during the day. If you fish lures you can fish fifty or sixty swims in a day. Add to that the fact that a well fished lure will, sometimes, actually outfish a livebait (although the reverse is true too), and you start to see that lures can catch you a lot more pike.

That's only half the story though. Lure fishing is mega fun, the thrill of having a big pike engulf a lure right at you feet on a short line is pretty much unbeatable in fishing terms and there is a real sense of satisfaction in placing a lure very precisely and having it hit before it even reaches the riverbed.

I still fish baits, but it's usually after I've completely exhausted myself with several days of tramping the banks lure fishing and I just need to sit down for a couple of hours.

i know what you mean eric it can be very tiring, have been using lures more and more these days but still deadbaiting most of the time , when i am on the boat its lures with maybe a couple of hours anchored up with a dead bait if nothing happening.

think its a case of the more you fish with the lures the better you get at it
