Lures

Just like for predatory fishing you also have lures for sea fishing. In the Netherlands you can think of lures for sea bass, mackerel or ropejouw. In (tropical) foreign countries you have to think more about big game fishing like tuna, dorade and marlin. The lures differ in size and weight. They are mainly the poppers, crankbaits, softbaits and pilkers that are used for sea fishing.

Pilkers

In the Netherlands, but also in countries like Norway and Denmark, the pilker is one of the best known and most popular types of lures. For wreck fishing on ropejouw and leng this is the coastal lure. A pilker is made of lead and contains a treble at the bottom. The deeper the cut and the stronger the current, the heavier the pilker has to be. The best known pilker is the herring pilker, this one looks most like a baitfish because of the colors, shine and shape. 

Tip: take enough of it with you, because you often lose a lot of it.

Softbaits

Softbaits like shads or twisters are also a common lure at sea. You need a large, heavy lead head for this and the shad may be bigger than smaller.
