    Matrix Minnow

    Matrix Minnow

    There’s nothing better than a fish smashing a topwater plug, but when they quit crushing it or begin swatting at it, that’s indication that it’s time to go to a subsurface lure. The Matrix Minnow is made with saltwater-grade black nickel hooks for a long rust-free life. It’s 3 1/8” long and dives down to 5 feet. It’s billed as a suspending jerkbait, but will sink ever so slowly if paused, making it a countdown lure as well.

    Drop-Let

    Drop-Let

    The Drop-Let is reported to keep your bait in the strike zone longer by maintaining a constant depth throughout the length of the retrieve. It also lets you keep the bait stationary or jig vertically over a likely target. Think of the Drop-Let as a bobber that allows you to fish any sinking bait vertically instead of only horizontally. This means you can ‘jig” a swimbait or other plastic in the water column right next to a tree or stump. It’s reported to be murder on crappie and bream as well as bass.

    Bill Lewis stutterstep

    Bill Lewis stutterstep

    Walking topwater baits are nothing new, but they’re generally one-trick ponies; they walk and don’t do much else. However, Bill Lewis Lures’ StutterStep has three different actions built into it. Its wide tail “grabs” the water if you wish to spin it in place with aggressive rod pops, and the tail’s resistance also provides a back-and-forth weave when steadily retrieved. Finally, a standard walk-the-dog action can be had with a traditional pop-and-reel retrieve. Retail price for the 5-inch bait is set at $13.99.

    Rapala's X-Rap Long Cast

    Rapala's X-Rap Long Cast

    When the fish are feeling the pressure, a long cast is critical to getting bit. If trout and reds feel like you’re on top of them, they simply won’t bite, so back off a little and make a longer cast. Rapala’s new X-Rap Long Cast is specifically designed to add yards to your casts, and then offer a lifelike twitching action after splashdown. The hardware is made just for brutish saltwater fish and the hooks are sticky-sharp VMCs.

    Strike King Trout Magic

    Soft plastic lures account for more trout in ice chests than any other lure style, and Strike King has upped the ante on inshore soft plastics with Trout Magic. It’s a traditional jighead that holds your swimbait in place while a spinner adds to the attraction. Despite its name, Trout Magic is deadly on bass and redfish as well.
