Not even COVID-19 could stop ICAST—the annual fishing-tackle trade show—from happening. Granted, this year’s show “happened” virtually, but I was still able to get a sneak peek at the year’s best new freshwater and saltwater fishing lures for largemouth bass, walleyes, striped bass, and more. There is an exciting mix of brand-new baits, plus improved designs on proven fish-catchers. Here is our roundup on the 10 best new lures for the 2021 fishing season. It’s […]
The big wooden old-school bass plug hit the water with a loud “ker-plop.” Even though the night fisherman could not see the lure, due to the dark shadow on the quiet, lee side of the little island, he could tell it was a good cast by the sound.

Three 16-year-olds from this Kansas town just beat about 90 percent of the competition at a national high school business class convention in California. The business model they designed for their fishing-lure company was up against those of many older students, some from private schools in major U.S. cities, at the Future Business Leaders of America conference in Anaheim. Now, the teens are back in Kansas with the goal of growing the company by improving […]
