Graphs & Charts

Some of the most important factors to successfully making fishing tackle is selecting the appropriate shaped and sized components for your lure and understanding the impact those components will have on your lure's effectiveness. Using a blade that is proportionately too large or long can off-balance your lure, preventing it from riding straight up during a retrieve. Likewise, making a plastic too hard will force the fish to spit it out. Take a few moments to review all of our charts and graphs to help you select the best components for your target fishing lure.
