Spring is in the air and that means it’s time to start thinking about fishing! Whether you plan to fish in a freshwater lake, river, pond, or stream, Hooker Booker has the tackle you need for a successful outing. Let’s break down some of our must-have tackle for any freshwater excursion.


When it comes to lures, it’s important to know what kind of fish you are looking to catch and what they typically bite on. For bass fishing, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are great options. For trout, crankbaits and spinners will also work great but adding soft plastic baits can also be effective. And if you are looking to catch panfish like bluegills or crappies, try using small jigs or live bait. No matter what kind of fish you want to catch, having several different kinds of lures will increase your chances for success.



The best reel for freshwater fishing depends on your target species as well as personal preference. Spinning reels are lightweight and easy to use which makes them perfect for beginners or those who don’t want to deal with complicated set-ups. Baitcasting reels can handle heavier lines and lures but require more practice and experience because of the backlash potential involved when casting them. Whichever type of reel you choose, make sure that it is well maintained so that it won’t let you down when out on the water!
