Snyders Lures is kicking off the open water fishing season by introducing its new Walleye & Crappie Club and the Slider. These are multi-species fish producers, developed and field tested by legendary lure designer, Gary Snyder.

The Walleye and Crappie Club is a super lightweight and extremely slow-falling presentation. A slight bend with its body design allows the bait to fall slow and flutter as it drops. They are available in two sizes and 12 color combinations and work ideal in shallow water. The Walleye & Crappie Club can be used under a slip bobber or as a stand-alone presentation.

The Slider is a heavier jig that has proven deadly in vertical fishing situations. It features an off-set Kahle hook and an adjustable bead that allows its blade to “slide” freely on the hook. Its design provides incredible side-to-side action that walleyes and crappies have yet to see. The Slider is available in three sizes and six color combinations.

Pick up the Walleye & Crappie Club, the Slider or any of Snyders quality jigs and spoons at a bait and tackle shop near you, look them up on Facebook or visit for more information.

Every bite matters. Every fish counts. If it’s not in the boat, it doesn’t count. Period.

To maximize the number of fish in the boat, Rapala went to its roster of top bass pros to develop a premium suspending jerkbait. After countless prototypes and months of testing, Rapala is introducing the first lure in the new PXR family, the Mavrik 110 jerkbait. If you’re looking for that extra edge, this is the jerkbait to turn to.

PXR stands for Precision, Xtreme®, Redline. The first in a series of elite, professional-grade lures to be introduced by Rapala, the PXR Mavrik is a suspending jerkbait made with the finest construction and unrivaled technical qualities demanded by Rapala’s pro staff.

The PXR Mavrik™ provides premium features, starting with Rapala’s Long-Cast System, which provides accurate, ultra-long casts to maximize time in the strike zone. The lure’s suspending, headdown attitude mimics an injured baitfish.

Hard-cutting, semi-erratic action makes the PXR Mavrik a versatile jerkbait for any condition. You can fish it slow with short twitches to walk the bait side-to-side or give it a quick snap to get the bait to turn nearly 180 degrees.

The high-quality components don’t stop there. The new PXR Mavrik is armed with three premium VMC® RedLine Series™ No. 5 treble hooks to make this a complete fish-catching jerkbait.

The new PXR Mavrik 110 is being introduced in a No. 11 (4-3/8th inch body length) size, weighing 1/2 oz.
