When the Vibe is Right
In Australia they call it vibing. To entice finicky fish, anglers work a small lure that vibrates as it falls through the water column and when it’s retrieved. Some anglers might call these lures by different names, as this lure style can be soft baits, hard baits or metal blade baits. Turns out, the tactic is deadly on a wide range of fish, and vibing is catching on around the world.
“Twenty years ago, vibe lures came to Australia from Japan,” explains Jarad “Dingo” Boshammer. Boshammer is a native Australian but now lives and guides in Jupiter, Florida. “In Australia, vibe lures are a household name,” he says.
