Tackle Week 2022: The best new lures for trout, bass, walleye, pike, muskie and panfish


Best Lure



ICAST’s Best of Show award typically goes to something pricey and sophisticated. This time, however, the honour finally went to a lure. Designed by Bassmaster champ Mike Iaconelli, the Gilly is a detailed, scent-infused imitation of a bluegill (a favourite largemouth meal). Available in 12 colours and three sizes, it features a hollow head to improve hooksets and keep it upright, whether on a Texas rig, swimbait hook or jig.
