lures used on CT shores

Rate this topic

I am new to the site and would like to know what types of lures are used on CT shores- top water, darters, needle, diamond jigs, plugs. I have a very limited amount of baits, jig head, a couple store bought plugs, some of the Storm baits.

Thanks

So hard to say. I guess to get you started, regardless of where in LIS I am fishing, I always carry SP Minnows, bucktails, Redfins, and a couple of metal-lipped plugs in the 1-2.5oz range, ie; RM Smith, Beachmaster Jr's, Afterhours, etc. This can be an endless discussion, but to get you started, the plugs I listed are a few I probably wouldn't hit the water without.

any type of jointed swimmer seems to work well on southwestern CT shores

Throw some needles in your bag and most importantly, RED FINS! Most underrated plug out there. SP minnows are great for when you first arrive to a spot and want to test the waters.

Cordell Redfins and Pencil Poppers, some plastic shads on lead jigheads, some Dannies (small and large), maybe a few SP Minnows and YoZuri Mag Darters and a few live eels will about cover it.

I'd throw a SS darter and Northbar bottledarter in your bag as well.

 

Yeah, I'll agree with that. Yellow darter and blurple or parrot bottledarter. I like the old Gibbs darters as well.
