Top Factors to Consider When Choosing Spring Fishing Lures

Before we dive into the latest fishing lures, remember that there are a few factors to consider before purchasing some of the coolest spring fishing tackle. If you’re looking to get into bass fishing, we have a quick guide to help you understand the different types of lures and when to use them.

  1. Type of fish: Fish have different feeding habits and preferences, so make sure you choose a lure that resembles the prey in the waters you fish.
  2. Water conditions: Water clarity and temperature can impact the effectiveness of your fishing lures. Remember that clear water may require more subtle and natural-looking lures, while murky water may call for brighter and more vibrant lures.
  3. Lure action: The action of a lure. Some lures have a realistic swimming motion, while others may have a more erratic or aggressive action. Consider the type of lure action most likely to attract the targetted fish.
  4. Lure colour: The colour of a lure plays a significant role in its effectiveness. Fish are more attracted to particular colours during different times of the season, which makes it more important to choose lures that match the natural colours of the fish’s prey or the surrounding environment.
  5. Lure size: The size of a lure can also make an impact. Larger lures may be more suitable for targeting larger fish, while smaller lures may be more effective for smaller fish species.

Gone are the days of Grandpa’s tackle. The world of fishing lures is constantly evolving, with new trends and innovations emerging each season. In spring 2024, several exciting trends are shaping the latest fishing lures. Let’s take a look at some of these trends:

1. Realistic Crankbaits

Crankbaits are a staple in many anglers’ tackle boxes and my absolute favourite! The latest trend is a realistic design. These crankbaits feature lifelike movements and intricate detailing that closely resemble the appearance and behaviour of real baitfish. The likeness that these manufacturers can achieve is unreal!

2. Innovative Soft Plastics

Soft plastics have long been a favourite among anglers, and the latest trend in spring 2024 is towards innovative designs that mimic natural bait. These soft plastics are made from eco-friendly materials and feature realistic textures, colours, and scents, making them highly appealing to fish. No more straight, speckly boring worms, hello floppy shad and bright, colourful crayfish (crawfish).

3. Hybrid Lures

Hybrid lures are gaining popularity in the fishing world, combining the best features of multiple lure types into one. With the versatility of fishing in various situations and attracting a wide range of species, these hybrid fishing lures are proving to be more effective than your traditional lures.

4. Technologically Advanced Lures

Technology is starting to play a significant role in the latest fishing lures, with features such as built-in sonar, GPS tracking, and app connectivity becoming more common. It takes the guesswork right out of fishing. The fish can now tell you what it wants to eat! 🙂 I’m sorry, but I think this takes the fun out of the sport. It may be cool for survival fishing, entertaining children, or for the collector of fine fishing gadgets, but I think having another animal tell me what they want for dinner is a bit much. 😉

Anywho, with the latest trends in spring fishing lures, it offers you, the angler, a wide range of options and fewer excuses for reeling in fish. So, whether you prefer the classic appeal of realistic crankbaits, the versatility of hybrid lures, or the Karen of fish, there’s a lure out there that’s perfect for you. Now, let’s dive into the top 11 latest spring fishing lures of 2024. These are the latest from the brands that we use most.

Realistic Lures

Almost every fishing lure manufacturer is releasing new colours for the spring 2024 fishing season, and I’m not listing them all here. However, I will show you the new colours from MegaBass as they are my absolute favourite lures. The realism with which MegaBass produces its lures is insane… The bass and walleye have no chance!

MegaBass PopX Black Orochi Spring Fishing Lure

MegaBass Pop-X

This spring, the Megabass Popmax comes in three new colours. The Megabass Pop-X features a unique gill system and detail, which differs from other poppers. The Pop-X has a Side-Stepping Balancer technology, making it move uniquely with short twitches of the fishing line, allowing it to look like a wounded baitfish. You can also use the Pop-X like a regular popper by letting it splash the water. The Pop-X is best fished about three inches at a time, creating a bigger splash and looking more like a real fish. This lure works best around grassy areas or covers near the shore in the morning or on cloudy days. It’s a must for any bass fisherman!

NEW SPRING COLOURS: Aurora Reaction, Black Orochi, GLXS Spawn Cherry

*These are new colours which may not be available at your local fishing store just yet.

MegaBass Deep-Six Crankbait in Old-Z

MegaBass Deep Six

The Megabass Deep-Six Crankbait also comes in four brand-new spring colours. The Deep-Six can catch fish at depths of 16 to 19 feet. It has a special slim lip that helps it cut through the water and stay balanced while diving. This lure also has a weighted system that helps with a far-distance cast and dives quickly to its target depth. Depending on where the lure is in the water, the weighted system shifts accordingly to produce an enticing action, which makes it an attractive target for big fish lurking in deep waters.

NEW SPRING COLOURS: Frozen Tequila, GLXS Spawn Cherry, Mat Shad, Old-Z

*These are new colours which may not be available at your local fishing store just yet.

PopMax Aurora Reaction Spring Fishing Lure

MegaBass PopMax

The Megabass Popmax also comes in a brand new Aurora Reaction colour. The PopMax fishing lure is a larger and much-improved version of the Pop-X. It has a unique six-water intake gill system, a chamber that creates bubbles and a chugging movement that mimics real fish.

With gentle movements of the fishing rod, you can use the PopMax like a regular popper or try “roll-walking”. The Megabass PopMax works best near rocky or riprap banks, over grass beds, or on shallow points in the morning. Like all poppers, it’s a magnet for bass.

NEW SPRING COLOURS: Aurora Reaction

*This is a new colour which may not be available at your local fishing store just yet.

Soft Plastics

For those anglers who love the Texas Rig, Carolina Rig, Wacky Rig, jigging, or drop-shot, don’t worry there are new soft plastic lures/colours making their debut as well.

ZMan ChatterBait Elite in Glitter Bomb

Z-Man ChatterBait Elite EVO

The Z-Man ChatterBait Elite EVO is a top-of-the-line bass jig. It has been improved with new features to make it even better. These upgrades include a special hook, an easy-to-use way to attach the trailer, and a strong, long-lasting blade. These enhancements create a high-quality bait with a unique and exciting movement that sets it apart from other vibrating jigs.

COLOURS: White, Chartreuse/White, Black/Blue, Green Pumpkin, Hot Snakes, Spot Remover, Lava Craw, Bluegill, Bama Craw, Bama Bream, Glitter Bomb, Electric Shad

ZMan Gobius Spring Fishing Lure

Z-Man Gobius

The Z-Man Gobius swimbait is designed to look and move like a real goby. Made from stretchy, strong plastic, the Gobius has a split dorsal fin brush guard, a special jig harness that helps it swim and move along, and a hook pocket for an easier hookset ratio.

COLOURS: Natural Goby, PB&J, Hot Snakes, Green Pumpkin Goby, The Deal, Bubble Gut, Perch, Sexy Shimmer Blue

ZMan TRD GobyZ Spring Fishing Lure

Z-Man TRD GobyZ

The Z-Man TRD GobyZ is a 2.4-inch finesse bait for catching bass. It is a malleable superplastic meant to take the attacks made by bass but soft enough to entice the fish to hold on.

COLOURS: Coppertreuse, PB&J, Canada Craw, Green Pumpkin Goby, The Deal, Yoga Pants, Hot Snakes, Goby Bryant, Green Pumpkin, Pearl

MegaBass Sleeper Craw Spring Fishing Lure

MegaBass Sleeper Craw

The new Sleeper Craw has a hidden hook and weight design, a lifelike appearance, is scented and has an impressive ability to catch fish. Its claws are always in a ready position and move realistically when twitching the fishing line. The hidden weight allows the Craw to glide smoothly over rocky areas without making unnatural noises, which makes it perfect for fishing near the bottom. The hidden jig hook also makes it easier to feel when a fish bites and helps you avoid getting snagged.

COLOURS: Black Blue, Demon Craw

6th Sense - Congo Craw Wild Lava Craw Spring Fishing Lure 2024.jpg

6th Sense Congo Craw 3.8

The hybrid 3.8 in Congo Craw bait is a very versatile fishing lure. You can control the action of the Congo Craw. Fish it as is for increased water displacement and a slower fall. For a wider and subtler action, remove the two inner appendages or remove the two outer bands for finesse fishing and a faster fall. The choice is yours.

COLOURS: Molting Crawfish, Wild Lava Craw, Crawfish Candy, Alabama Craw, Green Pumpkin Blue, Candy Brownie, Mudbelly Burst, Green Pumpkin Blue Swirl, Dark Water Bug, Green Pumpkin Burst, Magic Craw, Live Crawfish, Green Pumpkin, Black N Blue

6th Sense - Party Minnow Clearwater Rose Spring Fishing Lure 2024

6th Sense Party Minnow 3.0

The 6th Sense Party Minnow is a 3-in soft plastic lure created by pro angler Cory Johnston. Cory developed the drop-shot swimbait, hence the thin tail and the 3D eyes. At slow speeds, the thin tail allows for max kicking action, while the 3D eyes make for a realistic-looking fishing lure.

COLOURS: Pro Shad, Perch Juice, Green Pumpkin Shad, Green Pumpkin Ghost, Green Pumpkin, Gill Juice, Ghost Ice Minnow, Electric Shiner, Clearwater Rose, Black

*Since this is a new product, it may not be available at your local fishing store just yet.

6th Sense - The Judge  Green Pumpkin Gill Swimbait

6th Sense Judge 5.9

The Judge 5.9 is a hybrid of a swimbait and worm, perfect for fishing dense cover or grassy waters. 6th Sense added a ribbed texture to the 5.9-in lure for more realistic movement, a dorsal fin to prevent hooking weeds and an upward beefy tail for more oomph.

COLOURS: Watermelon Red, Plum Bug, Junebug Dip, Green Pumpkin Juice, Green Pumpkin Gill, Ghost Ice Minnow, Blue Fleck Magic, Black N Blue Dip

*Since this is a new product, it may not be available at your local fishing store just yet.

Most Anticipated Spring Fishing Lure for 2024

Ever Green Combat Rat Olive Gold Topwater Lure

Evergreen Combat Rat

The Evergreen Combat Rat is the coolest and most anticipated lure due to be released at the end of February or early March. This Combat Rat is a wake bait. It has a keel design to keep the rat upright and to create a wake while swimming. The 10.8″ rat also squeaks, vibrates and produces a one-knock sound, which should attract fish from a way out. The Combat Rat comes with a hefty price tag of $54.99 US.

COLOURS: Big Bite Chart, Matte Black, Matte White, Grey Flash, Pink Rat, Matte Brown, Olive Gold Flash

The Digital Fishing Lure

I wasn’t going to mention the digital fishing lure, but I’m sure some of you are curious, so here it is. The Eco-Popper Video Fishing Lure has a 720p HD camera to capture the fish’s movements. You can stream up to 90′ away, and it creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot. It has built-in sensors for water temperature, salinity, and tracking options. Be forewarned that the reviews on this are not great.

If you really must see your fishing lure, you may want to look into a line camera instead, like the Strike-Vu Lure Cam. As with the above digital lure, do your homework first! At the end of the day, it is new tech and expensive to boot.

Final Thoughts on the Latest Spring Fishing Lures of 2024

In conclusion, the latest 2024 spring fishing lures offer anglers a wide range of options, each with unique features and benefits. Whether you’re targeting bass, walleye, pike or any other fish species, these lures are designed and constantly tailored to attract fish and increase your chances of success on the water.

As always, remember to experiment with different lures and techniques to find what works best for you. Fishing is a dynamic sport – what works one day may not work the next.
