Let’s be honest, a fisherman can never have enough tackle. Fish can be finicky. But a well-stocked tackle box is a surefire way to boat more fish. Having the right lure at the right time can make a world of difference. So here’s a short list—broken out by fish species—of lures that are never far from our reach.
The Blakemore Slab Daddy Jig was designed by Mr. Crappie himself, Wally Marshall. Its minnow-shaped profile entices even the finickiest of fish.
Storm’s Rattlin’ Chug Bug practically does everything. It chugs, spits and darts like no other. A classic go-to for boating big bucketmouths.
The Salmo Pop was designed to put you on some monster bass! A great lure for precision casting, and the distinct “pop” sound, which gives the lure it’s name, is sure to drive those smallies crazy.
The Smithwick Mr. Walleye Rattlin’ Rogue was created by Mr. Walleye, Gary Roach. Its wounded-minnow action attracts even the most elusive walleye.
The Rapala X-Rap slashes, flashes and dances to create lifelike action that pike simply can’t resist.
The Musky Innovations Bull Dawg is made to twitch and jerk over weeds, near weed lines and on or around structure. Its frantic movement makes monster muskies go mad.
