I'm not much of a pro in luring but let me attempt to identify these lures for you. :o I think SGPU can provide a more detailed explanation on how to work them.

The first one is a popper, it's used to target near surface fishes that are attracted by the sound, vibration and splashes it creates when you twitch it. You can get baramundi, barracuda, queenfish and other types of surface predators.

The second one is a stickbait with propellor and is a type of topwater lure like the popper. The lure head will turn sideways alternately as you twitch it and the propellor aid as producing sound and vibration to attract fish.

The third one is a minnow, a type of crankbait. The lure waggles as you retrieve it and typical dives 1-2 metres below water surface. It can be used to target for fishes near surface and also bottom fishes if you're fishing in shallow places.

The fourth one is also a type of crankbait. It has a bigger lip so it probably can dive a litte deeper than the minnow, targeting more on bottom fishes like groupers.

All of the above lures can work on snakeheads and peacock bass if you're into freshwater fishing.

Take care of the hooks and remember to wash them after use, especially if you fish in saltwater. They can rust pretty fast depending on the make and quality of the trebles.

The first one is a popper, it's used to target near surface fishes that are attracted by the sound, vibration and splashes it creates when you twitch it. You can get baramundi, barracuda, queenfish and other types of surface predators. methods consist of. popping. plain cranking with variable speed: joint breaking speed; fast; regular; slow; dead slow. skidding. it can simulates frenzy prey scrambling for life. if the size is about 10cm or bigger or heavy like 30g or even heavier not ideal for casting then it would be more suitable for trolling.

The second one is a stickbait with propellor and is a type of topwater lure like the popper. The lure head will turn sideways alternately as you twitch it and the propellor aid as producing sound and vibration to attract fish. i like can you sell me??? quote me a price in private if you are willing to part it =D same techniques as popper may apply for this stick bait with propeller. but ideally i guess would be just regular cranking. as the propeller creates bubbles in its track, fishes not only hunt scent/ stench, they track movements too

The third one is a minnow, a type of crankbait. The lure waggles as you retrieve it and typical dives 1-2 metres below water surface. It can be used to target for fishes near surface and also bottom fishes if you're fishing in shallow places. check if its floating or sinking before you cast it into shallow water. suitable for all species, just a matter of time :lol:

The fourth one is also a type of crankbait. It has a bigger lip so it probably can dive a little deeper than the minnow, targeting more on bottom fishes like groupers.preferable be floating, suits soon hock too :lol:

All of the above lures can work on snakeheads and peacock bass if you're into freshwater fishing.

Take care of the hooks and remember to wash them after use, especially if you fish in saltwater. They can rust pretty fast depending on the make and quality of the trebles.

:cry: you look me so up. though i am not a champion with luring, but do allow me to share whatever i'd gathered.

Dear TS i hope you don't mind, i like to answer the question limfish posted.

To limfish, i am sorry i can't verify what you've heard. sorry with my limited knowledges, i do not know if there's such style. surfcast fishing sounds like a bigger scale of baiting to me nia. and you are most welcome to PM me for any discussion/ or start a discussion thread on your own due not very sure if MOST TS mind if we deviate their thread. kindly do not make this a habit aye . . .? learn to respect other forummers' rights aye . . .? :)

Oh okay back to answering the question.
Although i don't lure much I will help if i can.
The first one is a popper,used to attract fishes with its loud noises.
The last one is a floating stickbait,this lure(correct me if im wrong)will spin alot and will cause your line twist if a swivel is not used which can cause a lost fish by getting ur line tangled.
Urrrgh, no time to fish now~
