Is it worth de­lib­er­ately tar­get­ing chub on lures?

DO lures work for chub? Ge­off Greene, Lu­ton

LURES work well for chub, but pike may turn up so don’t fish too light a line.

Work the lure through the swim sev­eral times. A plug or small spoon will dive and rise like a small prey fish and preda­tory chub will chase and en­gulf it. Twitch the lure to pro­voke the ac­tion.

Cast and work the lure close to over­hang­ing cover or on the edge of creases where chub take up res­i­dence, and use a lure that’s bright and easy to see. Lure fish­ing only works in clear con­di­tions when the chub can see its prey.

Chub love cray­fish im­i­ta­tions.
