Best lures for starting out shore fishing for bass

Mon May 23, 2022 6:50 pm

I've just gotten back into fishing in the last year or so and been mostly shore fishing down around the Waterford. I haven't been having much luck on the fish front unfortunately, but still enjoying any time spent out fishing!
I'm just wondering what people's go to lures are for bass fishing or what are the ones you'd always have in your bag?

Thanks for any advice!

These are excellent along with the black minnow.

Like gold dust but plenty on the way to him over the next few weeks.

Ardinn is quite right when he says The Black Minnow. Nobody should leave home with a few different weights in their bag.
The same could be said for the Kilty Catcher in 32g
Of course don't forget the hard lures: a Feed Shallow is a great all round bass l;ure.

Thanks Jim. I have a few kilty catchers. I’ll try get my hands on a few of those hard lures and black minnows.
Thanks for the advice lads!

Just to add to above suggestions, if you have a bit of depth where you won't snag up too easy savage gear sandeels work well and if you are fishing through really shallow snaggy ground try a do live stick on a weedless hook. Main part is finding feeding fish
