Tackle Week 2017: 10 must-have new lures for Canadian anglers

Catching Canada: The lures

Crankbaits, spinners, soft-plastics and more, for walleye, bass, pike, muskies and trout—our exclusive annual roundup for Canadian anglers is sure to impress.

Best Vibrating Jig



To create this handy hybrid, Canada’s Freedom Tackle Corp teamed up with Z-Man Fishing Products, maker of the Original ChatterBait bladed jig. With the ChatterBait equipped with Freedom’s patented quick-change system, you can now easily swap out your favourite makes, models and sizes of hook, including weedless ones, as well as use a wide variety of trailers. And because the hook swings freely, big fish can’t gain leverage and throw the lure. Brilliant.
