Can I purchase blades and vibes at Anaconda?
Yes, you can. Bladed fishing lures are a fantastic choice for bream and bass fishermen as well as for many other fish species. Vibes are great for estuary fishing or freshwater fishing for a host of fish species, including bass, cod and flathead. Blades & vibes can be used to great effect, even by beginning fishermen. Here at Anaconda, you can find blades and vibes by Berkeley, Mojiko and Tackle Tactics in a range of shapes and colours.
What is the difference between vibes and blades?
These two types of lure are quite different although they do a similar job. Both lures are designed for sub-surface, often deep water, presentations. Both lures also sink, which means you can allow them to sink to specific depths before starting to work them. You can also allow them to sink right to the bottom to target bottom dwellers or deep sounding fish. Both lures can also be trolled. In fact, some models are specifically designed for this purpose.
Vibes are usually made from a plastic or timber body although some modern vibes are almost a morph between vibes and soft plastics as the body is made of a rubbery material. Many vibes are also equipped with internal rattles or other audible extras designed to maximise the lure’s fish-attracting abilities.
Blades work on similar principles but are a different design. They are constructed via a sheet of metal that has been cut into a specific shape (often that of a fish). Some modern blades have bodies made from durable plastics such as polycarbonate. On the forward underside is a shaped chin weight. This weight creates the action of the blade.
What are the benefits of using blades and vibes?
Blades and vibes have become very popular due to their simplicity in use. They can be used to great effect without having to be a highly skilled angler to do so. There are lots of different vibes and blades out there and without question, the better quality ones have one defining feature; that is they have an action whilst sinking. All of them will impart action on the retrieve but those that “vibe” while they sink will get more bites.
