Saltwater Hard Baits

Although fishing with live baits and natural baits can be very effective, most anglers would agree that nothing beats the thrill of a savage predator smashing a lure as it's being retrieved. Shop the selection of saltwater fishing hard baits available at TackleDirect and you'll be ready to entice a variety of species on the surface or down deep.

Our topwater lures include poppers that will entice vicious strikes from bluefish, stripers and other saltwater marauders along the beach. Check out our walking baits if you are seeking surface strikes from seatrout and other inshore species by "walking the dog" in the bays and backwaters.

To explore deeper, arm yourself with some of our crankbaits and swimbaits. We have extra-deep crankbaits that can probe the depths down to 20 feet or more.

When it comes to lures, it's hard to beat traditional spoons. You'll find all the greatest spoon designs here, including products designed for jigging as well as for casting and retrieving. We also carry plenty of weedless spoons designed to prevent hanging up when you work them through and around cover.
