If You Could Only Use 2 Lures For A Day, What 2 Lures? Softbaits Are Ok To Pick In This Game.

Recommended Posts

I just want everyone to be prepared for the day they are a co-angler and you draw the dreaded "you can only bring 2 lures on my boat" Partner, and  and when it happens, you only get 30 seconds to pick them out as well.

 

I know guys get tired of the 1 lure threads, so I figured I would throw a curve ball, we should do one on if you could only bring one size weight as well, what would you choose? I say 5/16.

Can the boater count as one of the lures I throw in the water?

I'm going to try to answer these all differently until April.

No matter what I'm into the most at the time, it will always boil down to a reaction bait and a slow moving bait. Right now it would have to be a 3/8 oz chatterbait and a 1/2 oz arky jig.

I would most likely leave and not deal with that a-hole but if we are just trying to start another 2 lure or 3 lure list here is mine.

Spinnerbait and senko.

These "pick your lure" threads are getting annoying and I doubt I am going to be told to only pick 2 lures to use all day as a co angler.

In the time it took to type that you could have responded with an answer or find a more productive thread for you.

Side note, I've had a boater in a BFL tournament cut my tackle in half including combos because he "didn't see the need".

No dumb questions out there... Only dumb answers.

I was kind of joking, but I had a boater tell me 2 rods, one bag (which is fair) but I usually bring 4 as co-angler, 5 with a buddy, but I think 3 is all I wanted to do that day anyhow. I asked if we were flipping all day since I didnt want to get stuck with a broomstick throwing a plastic worm all day, and a medium action spinning rod for topwaters and jerkbaits is a must for me and even shallow cranking as I have more control especially when it gets windy, and I always figure I may need to tie on a 3" grub or tube and finesse em or start throwing a beetle spin, but a Medium Heavy Baitcasting rod, and spinning rod is actually good because you are not temped to change rods and lures more than you should, I have to really focus on staying at the task at hand, I always want to try something I have never done before in tournaments for some reason, I think because I shop before I go, and always grab the newest stuff, now I stick to the basics and I really only fish 3-4 baits or lures.....

 

Being a co-angler helps you get better super fast, same as a club, you realize how everyone has odd things they do but I have always had good people who helped me out if I was struggling, so as long as you dont step on seats with muddy boots all usually starts off well.

Never understood why a boater cares what you bring. It's not like he's back there fishing with you. I don't care what a partner brings, as long as it fits. They get a dry storage bin behind their seat, and rods get strapped in next to them.

All I care about is when I give the 5 minutes and we're moving call, they're ready.

I totally agree.
