Calling all anglers! Whether you’ve exhausted your supplies after last year’s busy fishing season or are just looking to supplement your well-curated collection, here we’ve compiled a list of reliable, well-designed lures. They’re sure to help you catch something to write home about, thanks to features like attention-grabbing LED lights, attractive tastes and smells, and more. If its sound-producing models you’re after, look to the Rapala Rattlin and Dr. Fish Rattlin Bait, which both are filled with BBs that’ll intrigue all nearby swimmers. Or, you’ll light up the area to draw the attention of some heavy hitters with the Dr. Fish Trolling Squid. For the most bang for your buck, check out sets like the Plusinno and LotFancy, both of which feature dozens of pieces and handy, compartmentalized carrying cases. Finally, the Rapala X-Rap Magnum made our top spot since it’s a classic go-to from an established industry leader that’s stood the test of time and can bring you some great results.
