the gremlin is probably the 1st or second lure out when the water is deep for me the other being the ace hell tail
depends on what i want out of the lure

but the gremlin is certainly one of the lures that resuaded me lure fishing for pike was worthwhile on a few bi waters mostly trout tbh it has saved me a blank and if i want to fish something other than a soft plastic beyond 25 feet i cnat think of many lures to do that with, plenty of trolling lures but to cast and control at that depth

ok if your fishing drains or shallow stuff then the gremlin wont suit you in the slightest AND the fact its by fox does mark it down to some degree, however if it wasnt for fox (mainly) and ACE lures ie ones i could buy in shops near me id still be throwing smelly old dead fish

if you have binned it and you can get it back id buy it for a few quid...

down to my last couple of them now Sad

they are cheap but the postage mounts up bringing them back to similar prices elsewhere


one lure that is dirt cheap at the minute and i have a lot of time for the ace sorcey on ebay from fishing pool 5 of em for 15-18 quid i think, its a big lure that shifts a lot of water. ive not caught a great deal of fish with it but its a great wake up lure if you get me

ah well some tips are in order dont just buy lures ccos you like the look of em think about what you want em for depthwise action etc

lures can cost a fortune when your starting as (from experience) you tend to just pick lures up and but them without thinking too much (guilty of this big time)

but on the plus side most shops have the savage gear stuff in which is good and relativly cheap, hand on heart if i was starting out now or looking to add a fair few lures to a collection then they would probably be the 1st port of call for me

may i make a few suggestions to cover a few different things (and links to buy them(

bomber magnum long a a great search lure (crankbait) for shallower water casts well on jerkbait gear usefull in the sea if you want to chase bass etc so for me it is one of the very few absolute must haves
http://www.agmdiscountfishing.co.uk/magnum-long-silver-flashchartreuse-p-954.html?osCsid=6i6a9dm20c113p1s9tl805g6s3 if you shop around this in the uk will usually set you back ten quid or so so agm are very cheap on this
if your purely casting the lure (as opposed to trolling or walk trolling on a canal) then the straight version is good if your trolling then the jointed one is good it works for casting just not for me (not a fan of jointed cranks for casting)

glidebaits savage gear deviator freestyler etc all work i like (at the cheaper end) ace sweet shads in the 150 (its the weight the 150, or 66) and 66 size

pull baits aka dive rise, or rise dive depending on if they float dive on the pull rise on teh pause sinkers are the opposite
ace hell tail (all sink great for deeper water)
fox rooter, burt, squirrely burt (floating versions) great for working round trees over weed or any other structure you come across

erratic lures really are pull baits some are gliders though liek the T6 from chico
ace sorcy read above for the ebay bit on them big baits go al over the place if you work em hard
smuttly T6 lovely bait but pricey from chicos wait till you get more into it and these will float your boat
chop baits, and flippers, the flippers some of the best are the 'thin' ones from ace and chop baits for me in deep water teh fox gremlin works a treat i tend not to use them in shallow water though ive no idea why

some links
http://www.dlst.co.uk/articles.html read through the articles all no nonsense stuff some of the lures are hard to get now though but plenty of info to go at
http://www.fishingpool.co.uk/product_home.php the home of ace lures some shops stock a few

missed a few types out there things like spoons swimbaits and topwaters

spoons kussamo professor 00 size
swimbaits well the savage gear 4 play again but look at spro akita
topwaters are not my forte to be honest so ask someone who uses tehm a lot but ones i do like
lac seul turrbo revolving thing on the end loads of others out there though
ace medic walk the dog style again lots of others to choose from
im getting into the things like the daiwa dead or alive but have yet to use it, it looks nice though, but i will add its been pointed out to me buy one of the few people who i really listen too when they say something about lures (same person recomended the turrbo)

try harris angling as they have a good selection
also andy lush

but with both of those shops look around as they can be on the pricey side


for the savage gear stuff google will be better than me

lol, I will have to read that later when my eyes are less blurry but thanks for the info Noodle Cool

I will buy quite a few lures and I will buy some just because they look cool, but this does not mean I will use them all. I will think carefully about the ones that I actually use and how they will be used. the Savage one that we have been talking about tonight has been a great lesson for me, the way it swims through the water and the different depths I can achieve (sp) by winding faster or slower etc.

I have a lot to learn and it will be fun learning it, all I need now is more hours to go out and play Very Happy

ondex spinner (size 4 or 5)
manns 1 minus
manns super stretch 1 minus
bomber magnum long A
heddon crazy crawler

the above 5 are all geared towards just sub-surface but they really have worked well for me... sometimes over deep water Very Happy
