Original Muskie Lures

My dad thinks that there are only about six original muskie fishing lures.  My list may be inaccurate, but it should be close. (And yes I know that at least one of these was designed for bass not muskies.)

A Mepps bucktail is the standard for bucktails and there are an endless array of of new bucktails.

The first surface baits, I think, were a Zara Spook, globe, and Tallywhacker.

An original jerkbait was a Suick.


The original crankbaits were Cisco Kids and Grandmas.

I thought I would point these products out because it is sometimes nice to patronize businesses that create the original ideas rather than those businesses that just copy the innovators.
