A line-up of must-have lures for bass, crappies, perch, walleyes, and more
The first half of my life found me targeting every fish that swims the Great Lakes. I grew up the son of a part-time charter captain, and I later established a career around tournament fishing. I called the continent’s biggest freshwaters home.
I fished virtually year-round (unless I was duck hunting), and as the calendar changed, so did my target species. Bass and walleyes were obvious obsessions, but I loved catching panfish and salmon, too — as well as about anything that would bite. In time, with guidance and input from the area’s best anglers, I came up with a list of top-producing lures for Great Lakes fishing. There are plenty of baits that will catch fish here, of course, and you shouldn’t limit yourself. But if for some crazy reason you were allowed 10 lures and 10 lures only, these would be the ones to bring.
