Tackle week 2021: 11 awesome new lures for fishing in Canada


This year’s best new lures for fishing in Canada include huge muskie baits, tiny panfish jigs and just about everything in between.

For a look at more of the year’s best new fishing gear, check out Gord Pyzer’s round-up of 2021’s best new tackle, electronics and accessories.

Best Topwater Lure



Freedom Tackle’s new bladed topwater flashes, vibrates and creates even more chaos when the oversized blade bangs against the body and back hook. Better still, the blade gives the lure an amazing hunt-for-centre action. I also love the premium Gamakatsu treblehooks, and the bone, white and ghost colours. Bass anglers will go gaga for this lure, but I can’t wait to also throw it for big, tough-to-catch toothy critters.
