Hi guys,
Since we just had the Chicago Muskie Show, and some coming up, was just wondering what new spring lures you're excited about for 2018. I'm interested to hear what spring and early summer lures are being promoted at the upcoming shows. Dreaming of those warm days, helps a little more, when you hear what's coming out this year.
Thanks again and have fun at the shows!
George

Lake edition baby beaver and the new smaller 9"er are going to be killer. Not fully new, but I really like trolling the Phantom Hex in open water in June. I haven't given the Kramer Revolutions much of an effort yet, but I plan to this season.

The dbl bladed apache blades look good to me. The description sounds like they are best for slow rolling. Wonder how they do at high speeds?

I tried these when I was fishing with Luke Ronnestrand this past summer. They pretty much fish like any double Colorado blade bucktail, except they start spinning EVERY time, and you can slow down way more and the blades kept spinning.
I was super impressed.
They work just fine at high speed too, as we caught two fish that day on them reeling fast!

Ran these quite a bit this fall with Josh Borovsky and other people on Tonka. While I won't pretend that these things completely change the bucktail game, I do believe that Musky Frenzy has created a better bucktail that's very flexible.

It comes down to good construction, quality components (including tinsel), and that double clevis that makes the blades spin so easily. This allowed for precise depth control. As you mentioned, it slow rolls very well. This is great for depth, but where it really shines is skinny water. I fish A LOT of shallow weeds/sand. Those blades started spinning right away, keeping me out of weeds and allowing me to run the bait slower than I could otherwise. Going forward this will be my go-to bucktail for night fishing and shallow structure.

On a side note, first fall fishing Tonka. Between Aug 23 and Sept 22 we put 18 muskies in the net, including a 50 and 51. Most of that can be attributed to applying concepts that Josh taught us. If you're looking to speed up your learning curve for Tonka, I strongly recommend reaching out to him about his Master the Metro package.

I threw the Double Apaches quite a bit this summer and I want to echo what a few other guys said - they start great every time and you can really slow them down but still keep them high in the water column without any chance of the blades stalling, skipping or stopping. The best applications I found for them was over shallow weeds (especially at night) or super shallow rocks (think LOTW) as you could keep them from getting fouled without really speeding up or keeping your rod tip super high. They also really thump so it was easy to time your figure-8 at night even without being able to see the bait.

And they work fine at normal or high speeds (pull a lot harder than a Triple Apache and about the same as a DCG with similar sized blades), but there are probably better options out there if you are really looking to burn them.

Lee's Levithan Dive & Rise sure looked incredible in the water.
Too pricey for me, at least until I decide it's not.

yeah and you will get 30 lures that are not in the same league.visually speaking and in therm of talents needed to make one.
would you trade 30 canoe for a ranger even if it worth the same value?

supertrollr The Apaches have a custom Clevis that is all one piece. I don't know of any other Bucktail using that Clevis. That is why they spin so good.

Been soldering clevises together opposed to one another for years and they are nice for slow rollin but the blades rarely get a chance to bang into one another which results in additional sonics if you're into that. Couldn't get it to work with #8 colorados but #9's and up start every time and work like a charm. Super easy and quick to do yourself without taking the bait apart as long as you have a soldering iron, a small file, and some solder.
Another bait maker that did it was Musky Safari. They make a collar that the clevises sit in opposed to one another that had the same affect.

The drifter croc does look good in the water. With a moving line tie it looks like you may be able to get it to do multiple things with changes in rod direction. I will be getting some.

Nauti lures has newly redesigned custom built bucktails with 4 blades available at the shows this year. I here they were the hot bait at the Wisconsin musky expo and there are only limited quantities left for sale! Some well known guides used them last year and boated several 50"+ fish. I believe there are still some for sale today at the WI musky expo. Check them out.
