    I am not an expert on lure fishing, but I will try to explain :)

    When lure fishing you wont be able to cast as far like you can with course fishing, just like you wouldn't in real life. While lure fishing, you cast distance with depend on the rod and lure you are using. Some rods cast further then others, heavy lures will cast a little further then light lures. Like sink lures are generally heavier then float lures, and will cast further.

    That's correct buddy, you kind to have to try and take note which cast further. I found sink lures cast further in general.

    Surface lures tend to be the lightest so wont cast very far,diving lures are next,then the plastic lures & then sinking lures/spoons cast furthest as they are heavier.
    That's just a rough idea from my experience.I tend to get between about 28 yards up to about 46 yards depending on the lure.

    To be honest I don't really pay attention to my casting distance when lure fishing,only when Carp/Course fishing as I like to hit the same spot every time if I can,especially if I remember to use the Spod as well.
    I'll try & check my casting distances next time i'm lure fishing & see if it's the same for me.
