Tackle week 2019: The top 12 new lures for fishing in Canada

2019’s best new lures

The latest jerkbaits, spinners, soft-plastics, swimbaits, topwaters, jigs and more for Canadian anglers

Best jig


Outdoor Canada was one of the first magazines to showcase the Ned rig (invented by my friend Ned Kehde), which features a small chunk of soft-plastic stickbait on an ultralight jig. It’s very effective, but it also requires constant rearranging. Not so with the mushroom-shaped Finesse Jig Head, thanks to a spring that locks the soft-plastic in place. It comes in 1/8-, 3/32- and 1/16-ounce weights, all with a light-wire size 1 hook.
