    I volunteer for an emergency teen shelter and today while picking up some furniture a widower was donating she handed me a tackle box full of gear. It’s crazy because I was just telling someone how badly I wanted to learn how to fish.

    [Here are the lures that I am curious about](https://imgur.com/a/knNxuUr). The rest of the stuff in the box is all pretty self explanatory (extra line, needle nose pliers–which btw Idk what they’re doing in a tackle box but whatever–, sinkers etc).

    Most of them have “Yo-Zuri” on them which I’m sure is the brand name..

    Anyway, what are these and what sort of fish can I catch with them?

    I live in coastal NC(Ocean Isle Beach) if that helps anyone with fish native to my area… I am minutes from saltwater, freshwater and brackish water, Fishing piers, shorelines, lakes. Pretty much any possible body/type of water fish might live in.

    Thank you in advance and I hope I’m not cluttering up the front page with the type of post that annoys regulars here.

    Edit: thank you everyone for your help. Looking forward to a new hobby.✌

    Needle nose pliers will be found in most tackle boxes. They’re used to remove hooks from fish, among a million other uses.

    The top two are mirrolures, the next lures look like yo zuri jerkbaits, a live target shrimp(?) And a doa shrimp, the spoons are hopkins shorties? Im pretty sure about some of them. Somebody adjust my IDs.
    Edit: Its a yo zuri shrimp, not a live target shrimp.

    Top two pics are various mirrolure lures
    Middle pic is a DOA shrimp, and yozuri crankbaits
    Bottom pic is two flutter spoons and an in-line spinner.

    All are saltwater lures except for the spinner really. Maybe the spoons for freshwater.

    Nice Saltwater group, and very little use by the looks of it. Trout, reds, Ladyfish, Weakfish, etc.

    These yo-zuri minnows are awesome when used like a jerkbait, especially for pike and other big predators.
