Surface lure fishing provides some of the most spectacular and exciting fishing possible. The thrill of a big fish chasing your bait or seeing one busting out of the water to hit your lure is hard to beat.
Here’s a few tips on using Samson lures to help you get more hook ups!


Target early mornings and evenings which are generally the most productive times.
Cast towards structure as often fish will be hunting in these areas looking to ambush smaller bait fish.
When bass fishing work the lures over the shallowest of rocky outcrops especially around white water spots.
Don’t forget to work the lure right up to your feet as so often strikes happen right on the last winds of the reel!
Don’t just stay in the same spot for hours casting , Cover as much ground as possible.
In dirty or green water try using bright coloured lures like the chartreuse fish skin which are easier for fish to see.
On clearer calm days use smaller lures and try the natural skin swap designs.


Tips on using Samson lures

Our lures have been especially designed for specific conditions but feel free to experiment. A variety of retrieval speeds can prove effective depending on the target species.  The action of the lure is the most important factor in this type of fishing, so vary your retrieves to see what’s working. Just changing your action or speed can result in an instant strike! A Fast continuous retrieve can be effective as can a slower winding action using a downward or upward twitch of the rod tip to imitate a fleeing bate fish!

The beauty of Samson lures is not only will there long casting design allow you to cover more ground, but you can work the lures on the surface over shallow rocks and then at any time allow the lure to work sub surface with erratic darting actions, and see what is the most effective for what the conditions demand.
