Bait Casting Baits
It is not so many years ago that the only artificial baits used consisted of spoons in various styles, phantom minnows, and divers rubber bugs. As noted above the new method of casting from the reel greatly stimulated the use and production of artificial lures and, at the present time, the bait-caster may make his selection from a great many different sorts, some of which are very good and others very bad. Classification of these baits in general shows two well differentiated sorts; sinking baits and surface baits. Although not entirely, the greater part of the recently introduced lures belong to the first of these classes. Generally speaking the surface baits are only successful in rather shallow water, two to eight or ten feet, and are, therefore, only to be used when the bass are in the shallows. Of the sinking baits the wooden minnows are the most numerous, are very extensively used, and the best ones are usually very successful.
