Saltwater Fishing Lures

Do they make special lures for saltwater fishing?

In the past two decades, custom and unique lures have become much more readily available.  This is due in large part to the popularity of the Internet.  Today, small bait shops and national chains have their own sites, where they offer tackle and resources for fishermen.  There are many types of lures that are designed specifically for saltwater fishing.  There are also some lures that are able to be utilized in both saltwater and freshwater.  However, special lures that are designed solely for saltwater fishing are effective for two main reasons.  First, they are typically coated with a special type of substance that makes them more resistant to the corrosion that is caused by saltwater.  This makes the lures more viable for long-term use.  Second, saltwater lures are designed specifically for fish that are found in saltwater.  Most types of fish that are found in the oceans surrounding the United States are not able to live in freshwater.  As a result, by default, the lures designed to snare fish in the ocean are going to be used primarily in saltwater.  One example of this is the Megabiat Live Jig with Kudako Single Hook System, which is ideally suited for catching Albacore Tuna, Salmon, Barracuda, Bonito, and other predatory saltwater fish.  This particular lure can be jigged, trolled, or cast.  There are hundreds of manufacturers and stores that offer saltwater lures.  Among these are Acme Lures, Black Bart Lures, Calcutta Flashfoil Swim Shads, and Burns Saltwater Outiftters Jet Head Fishing Lures.
