    Hi, everyone!
    I would like to know what is the difference between teaser and lure, or maybe both are synonyms? :confused:Thank you very much for your help.
    Here is the context:
    "When you fish with a teaser, you are using a large lure and a smaller one at the same time. The teaser fished in front of the larger lure looks like a small baitfish being chased by a larger one. Sometimes you can catch a double header...
    If you are going to be throwing lures, you can add a teaser and be throwing two lures at once. Maybe you will catch a double header.
    You may not be sure if the stripers are feeding on large baitfish, or small ones. When you use a teaser, you are using two different size lures at the same time, which is a distinct advantage. Also, when retrieved from a stripers viewpoint, it may appear that the lure (the larger baitfish), is chasing the teaser (the smaller baitfish)."

    The text tells you what a "teaser" is - a small lure in front of a large lure simulating a small fish being chased by a larger fish.

    Hello Kerena,

    The explanation is all there in your post.

    A teaser is much smaller than a lure and is fished in front of it, to give the impression that the lure is a large fish chasing a smaller one.

    Cross-posted with Andy.
