Saltwater fishing lures are bigger baits for bigger fish. The saltwater is a tough environment for your fishing gear, including your lures, so it’s important to find lures that are durable, with good hooks, and hardware. Not only to weather the elements of saltwater fishing, but to handle the larger fish with larger teeth that can easily tear up smaller freshwater lures. Saltwater lures are much tougher, with stronger finishes.
