When the water is cold and the fish are deep, a blade bait is often unbeatable. I like this new one from Freedom Tackle because of its unique hooking options. In particular, the double hook can go in the usual spot on the bottom, or be moved to the top of the head (as shown) to avoid snags. Ice anglers can also attach the lure at the nose, and fish it vertically like a flash spoon. The Blade Bait comes in ½- and ¾-ounce sizes and 10 colours.
