Lure for a kid

Rate this topic

If you were going to tie on a lure for a preteen kid (12+)

Something that will cast easily and doesn't require alot of skill to use. 

What would you put on?

 

 

7 1/2ft spinning rod. 10lb braid, 4000 reel.   

Small stripers, blues, fluke etc. 

 

 

I'm thinking jig with paddle tail plastic.

Soft plastic swimmer on a ~1 oz jig head seems hard to beat  be sure to super glue it on so you don't have to worry about it getting pulled down and not swimming right 

Second up would be something like an sp minnow, or kastmasters in my opinion

Dardevle spoon in classic red and white color scheme.

Everything from freshwater bluegills and bass to snappers and stripers will take these.

Just teach the kid to cast and reel.

He’ll catch something

She's really got the casting!  She only would use a pushbutton. She's mildly autistic and will not do something she is not used to. But one day last week, she wanted to try it.  

By our 2nd outing she was whippin it out there!  

 

She's been using a kastmaster and a bucktail & Gulp.   She did get a nice hit but there really wasn't much going on. 

 

Just want her to hook up.

I pretty much fish with my 7yo 90% of the time. Like others said an sp or deadly dicks are a great choices. Storm shads are good too. Also a hi low with a 1oz bank sinker and two 4’ Berkley Swimming Mullet are great for kids when fluking.

Yes, yes, yes !

This is a critical step in safely teaching kids to fish.

It makes unhooking kids, yourself and fish so much easier.
