Default Do you use these here?

Husky jerks, Rapalas #10-#18 shallow and deep, Smithwick, Reef runners Yozui minnows deep and shallow, Live target, Hot-n-tots The list goes on...are these used down here for salt water at all? I have literally hundreds probably closer to a thousand of them from walleye fishing. Down sizing my stuff but don't want to send to the kid if I they will be used down here. I know like my jigs and tails are used. Holy wha! Now I know what my wife was bitchin about...lol

I hear ya. Moved here couple years ago with bass lures. I think it depends on the action and what you are fishing for. If a Spanish will hit a hunk of metal with a hook, they'd probably nail what you have. The real question is how are they going to hold up in saltwater. I still have a few that I've used but have had to replace the trebles several times. You wont know till you try. Good luck!

No those won't work down here so I'll take them off your hands Seriously, if it looks and acts like a minnow up north, it will look and act like a minnow down here so it will get eaten. As long as you wash them off after each use they should do just fine.

Most will work some will work better. You just gotta try them out and if a fish is hungry it'll eat damn near anything with the right presentation. I've caught fish on lures I bought because they were cool or weird looking even if they didn't look like a fish at all. Most of the time when that happens I'm screwing around just passing time.

yes they work (especially the yozuri) but you have to protect the hardware. I carry a medium size tupperware container with a lid 3/4 full of fresh water and I give 'em a good rinse right on the water when finished with a particular lure for the day. Changing the hooks may also be necessary.

As stated above, and what I've always said- there are so many similarities in freshawater bass fishing and inshore saltwater fishing. Almost every freshwater lure could be used to catch so many insore species- redfish, trout, flounder, etc. I even keep many commonly used bass / freshwater lures. Strike King Coffee Tubes and Caffine Shad for example. You might want to change some of your hooks out to prevent rust / corrosion that might make you miss a strike.
So, before you consider getting rid of those freshwater lures, take a few fishing around here and see what reaction you get from the fish.
A couple other posts to refer to:
Bay / near offshore help - "Generalizations"
Which lures work for you?

Hope this was helpful
