10 Bass Lures You Can Use for Saltwater Fishing
By: Rob Newell
No need to buy saltwater-specific baits for a single trip, these proven, well-known bass lures will work for inshore saltwater fishing
If you are an inland bass head and a vacation has you headed to the coast, there is a strong likelihood you currently possess bass lures that will easily catch inshore species such as redfish, spotted seatrout, flounder, snook, stripers or just about anything else that swims in the salty shallows.
You never know when a run of pompano, Spanish mackerel or blues might just start schooling right off the beach in front of you. So if you’re looking to pluck a few lures from your bass box just in case, here is what to take for inshore fishing.
Toss in any 4- to 5-inch noisy topwater walker such as a Zara Spook, Skitterwalk, Sexy Dawg, Sammy or Vixen. As for colors, it really doesn’t matter – chrome, pearl, shad – you name it. Depending on the model, you might need to upgrade the hooks. Toss and work these anywhere you have clear, calm water and if baitfish are present, even better.
