Bass fishing is no longer just a hobby; it’s becoming a national obsession. There are many different types of lures that you can use for bass fishing, but with so many options, filling your tackle box with the right bait can seem impossible.
While there are hundreds if not thousands of different varieties of bass lures, you can basically divide these lures into five broad categories. Each one of these categories has its own uses, and a good bass angler will keep a few of each in their tackle box.
