Fishing Lures

Choosing the right fishing lure can make or break your fishing experience. From metal to plastic to rubber, fishing lures come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Filling your tackle box with a variety of lures can help you land your prize fish.

Why Choose Fishing Lures Over Live Bait?

Lures work by mimicking the prey that fish eat, and while using the real thing has its benefits, using lures can provide a more tailored fishing adventure. Lures offer more variety than live bait, can be re-used and are not as messy. Since a fish is probably not going to swallow the lure, as it would live bait, fishing lures are a better choice for catch-and-release fishing.

What Are the Best Lures?

Just as there is a wide range of fishing rods and reels, there are many types of lures. The type of fishing lure you use depends on what type of fish you are trying to catch. For example, jetsetters are great for trolling behind a boat, while spinners are better suited for casting. Spoon lures are simple, effective and work well for a variety of fish species. No matter what type of fish you're after, Rebel Sport NZ has a lure to help you catch it.
