The 2013 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades—better known as ICAST—proved fertile ground for finding promising new hardbaits. Following are a rundown of 10 top new crankbaits and minnow-imitators unveiled under the sweltering desert sun in Vegas this week.
- Designed by Kazuto Yamaki, the Jockie 120 blends topwater theatrics with top-shelf jerkbait performance. It dives straight with a spin of your reel handle—thanks to its unique, diamond-shaped lip. Plus, the bottom cup produces a popping sound on splashdown. Other features include a flashy inner scale molding, and aft-oriented, moving weighting system for long casts and a funky pop, dive, head-stand, and rolling action. Available in six colors. jackall-lures.com
