It's been two years since I tied on my first Salmo lure. I was fishing Devils Lake, ND and the walleyes and pike were in shallow water. The bait was the #4 Salmo Hornet, and it took two casts to connect with a fat, 4-pound walleye. That fish and dozens to follow convinced me this is a superb bait. I've cast and trolled this lure and taken hundreds of walleyes down to 20 feet, simply by switching to larger, deeper diving sizes. The Salmo Horney belongs in every fisherman's tackle box.
My friend, Jason Mitchell, prefers the #7 Salmo Perch for big walleyes, and I like the Salmo Zipper, a rattling blade bait like no other, for big summertime smallmouths.
And when I'm chasing big northern pike, the Salmo Sting, a suspending minnow lure, is the best of its kind. On my fourth cast at North Dakota's Lake Sakakawea this past October, I caught a 15 pound northern pike on it. It's perfect for coldwater fish. Give it a twitch and it stays there. It triggers big pike and muskies too.
And speaking of muskie baits, Salmo Turbo Jacks, Fatsos, the Skinner, Warrior and Slider, along with the fantastic Maas Maurader, produced 32 muskies to 53 inches for sixteen of us in three days on Lake of the Woods.
Salmo Baits are super realistic, offer superior hydrodynamic characteristics, and most of all, catch fish.

Salmo lures, the best I've ever used.
