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


Best Muskie Lure



As a muskie angler, I was in love at first sight when I saw this monster swim jig. It’s nine inches long, weighs two ounces and features a streamlined, fish-head-shaped epoxied jig head. You can swim the lure over the tops of weeds, flutter it down off the edge of structure breaks or slow-roll it along the bottom. Most swim jigs and paddletails are sold separately, but these come together, so they’re perfectly matched.
