F&S Top 50


Don't let this question be answered by comparison to how mant pairs of shoes is enough. Lures cost about 5- 15 dollars these days. Shoes cost at least 10 times as much. If you make that tradeoff you loose the battle. :rolleyes:


As the discussion of Ockham brought, out there are different lures for different conditions. The 5 or 10 lures, that I carried into the Quetico long ago, might not cut it today. Here'an article naming a top 50 Lures of All Time. How many do you have? What do you think.


Here's the list in one place:

Great list of lures! My wife keeps asking me the same question every time I go to Bass Pro! You can never have enough. I am a tackle junkie and probably need to a shrink about it... or a fish.

Personally I have the list covered though I might not have the exact brand. For instance, I do not have The Culprit Tassel Lizard though I have enough lizards to fill a tropical island. I missed some oldies like the Bass Oreno, Lucky 13, Lazy Ike, and River Runt though these might be thought of as collector baits. Where's the Spoonplug?
