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.
