We’ve collected a bunch of the new fishing lures for the upcoming fishing seasons and are sharing a quick introduction to a wide variety of freshwater fishing lures for 2024. These are the new lures introduced this summer at ICAST. There are bass fishing lures, panfish lures and a few other lures for walleye, musky, etc. We will cover the new fishing reels and new fishing rods in separate posts so be sure and check those out as well. And we’ll have a separate sections for kayak fishing, electronics and accessories and other fishing gear.
Here’s what’s new in fishing lures from a variety of fishing tackle companies for 2024.
Offering anglers the durability and performance of a plastic bait, the Dime features balsa-like action thanks to Berkley’s patented Flash Disc technology. It not only casts further due to the weight transfer system in the smaller sizes, but it tracks perfectly and features sticky sharp Fusion19 treble hooks for when it’s time to fill the boat. Rounding out the offering are first in class finishes and colorway options to match the hatch that balsa baits cannot achieve.
- Patented Flash Disc Technology achieves balsa like action in a plastic bait
- Weight transfer system for further casting in sizes 4 and 6
- Sticky sharp Fusion19 hooks
Available in three different sizes starting from 5-inch and ranging up to 9-inches, the PowerBait Nessie presents a big profile with the ability to be retrieved at various speeds and cadences due to the stabilizing fins that keep the bait running consistent at all times. Featuring a new mesh reinforced joint and hook retention clip, durability and efficiency are never in question when anglers are hunting for a big bite.
- Soft-bodied glide bait design featuring Berkley’s famous PowerBait flavor
- Mesh reinforced joint provides durability while allowing for free range of motion
- Stabilizing fins for consistent action
- Hook retention clip keeps treble hook secured to the body – suited for keeping the hook in place when skipping under cover
- Sticky sharp Fusion19 treble hook
- Custom painted forage matching finishes
RAPALA CRUSH CITY BRONCO BUG
What sets the Bronco Bug apart from the competition is a perfect level of body thickness, which allows an angler to Texas rig a hook to keep it snagless, while allowing for easy penetration of the hook. It features a dolphin-like swimming action and a “Bronco Buck” kick when jigged. The body of the bait has raised ribs on each side to hide the hook point, meaning that when one side of the bait starts to show wear, the hook can be flipped without compromising any action, thereby increasing durability and efficiency. The appendages face forward, which means they’ll create a disturbance larger than that of the overall package and remain quivering with the slightest bit of current or angler manipulation. 15 colors. MSRP $6.99 a pack
RAPALA CRUSH CITY FREELOADER
Collaborating with Jacob Wheeler, the product engineers at Rapala sought to create the ultimate chatterbait/spinnerbait trailer bait. It can be used as a vibrating jig trailer, alone as a swimbait, or for countless other traditional and novel soft plastic presentations. The body features miniature ribs for added action, water movement and a realistic texture, but the unsung hero of this product is the tail, which tapers to a point, albeit one with a ball at the end. That creates a kicking action which is subtly realistic. It’s the reason why it has quickly become Wheeler’s spinnerbait trailer of choice, too, adding a bit of bulk, color contrast, and a touch of ultra-realism. 4 1/4 inches long. 6-pack for $5.99. 17 custom colors
RAPALA CRUSH CITY NED BLT
The Rapala CrushCity™ Ned BLT is a 3-inch tapered worm. It combines durability and high floating, while also retaining maximum action. It’s built with TPE, so it’s super-flexible and has some really good colors to it, but the key is that 3 inches is the perfect size whether you’re dealing with largemouth bass, spotted bass or smallmouths. Available in 16 custom colors with 10 baits a pack and MSRP $5.99.
RAPALA CRUSH CITY CLEANUP CRAW
It features a carefully crafted body, thick enough to hold a beefy hook without slipping, but not so thick as to hinder a hook set. The unique appendages and claws cause it to kick and quiver with the slightest movement on a jig, punched or cast on a Texas rig. It is 3 1/2 inches long and is available in 17 custom colors tweaked specifically to Wheeler’s preferences. It comes in 7 craws to the pack and has a suggested retail price of US $6.99.
RAPALA CRUSH CITY THE MAYOR
The Mayor’s tail does not kick super hard, but instead steadily and naturally swings from side-to-side. With a subtle body roll, this swimbait performs thanks to a salt- and scent-infused body. But the density of the plastic gives this swimbait the perfect kick Wheeler wanted to be an ultra-realistic imitation of a shad. Available in 3- and 4-inch sizes, 16 custom colors, 8 in a pack (3 inch) and 6 in a pack (4 inch), MSRP starting at $6.49.
RAPALA OG DEEP TINY 7
This small, flat-sided lure is made with premium balsa wood and features a circuit board lip. The flat-sided body design, combined with its balsa wood construction gives it a tight and finesse wobble.

MSRP $10.99.
STRIKE KING GRAVEL DAWG
Delivering a wide wobble action in a bite-sized, 1.5 profile, Strike King’s new Gravel Dawg grinds through rock, wood, and grass better than any medium-diving crankbait in its class.The Gravel Dawg comes in two different versions – the Gravel Dawg 8 and Gravel Dawg 10. Both sizes keep the same body profile and size, but the bill changes between the two to achieve different diving depths. These baits will have you covered in the 5-10 ft. range throughout all parts of the country. MSRP $9.99.
STRIKE KING KVD J300 DEEP SINKING JERKBAIT
Adding depth to an already robust jerkbait collection, Strike King introduces the new KVD J300 Deep Sinking Jerkbait. The KVD J300 Deep Sinking Jerkbait was was designed in conjunction with MLF Bass Pro Tour Angler Kevin VanDam. The jerkbait is weighted perfectly to sink nearly 0.5-feet per second and maintains the amazing erratic action of the standard KVD 300 Deep Jerkbait. This bait comes stock with 3 super sharp Mustad Triple Grip Hooks and premium paint finishes which means this bait is ready to rock straight out of the package.
STRIKE KING RAGE HAWK
The Rage Hawk is the newest additions to the long line of Rage Tail Plastics from Strike King. The Rage Hawk is 3.25” and features a super compact profile, with two Rage arms extending from the side of the bait. It is able to fit up to a 5/0 hook in its smaller body style, increasing hook up ratios and presenting fish with the perfect, snack-sized bite for finicky bass.

The Rage Hawk is built upon the traditional Rage style to push the limits of innovation and entice more bites.

Strike King Mr. Crappie Lil Suck’r
The Lil Suck’r is a small profile, shad pole style swim bait with a paddle tail and a subtle swimming action. It has a hot tail bait color scheme and will be very effective with highly pressured fish. This bait works really well on a 1/16 oz. and 1/32 oz. Teen-Zee Sausage Head Jig.
Strike King Mr. Crappie Sugar Glider
The Sugar Glider also uses Mr. Crappie’s signature shad pole style body but is unique because of its wings. (Or “wangs” if you’re Wally.) Because of the wings, the bait is able to accomplish a fluttering or gliding movement when shooting under a dock. Another unique feature is extruded square tail, causing a wiggle even when the bait is still.
Strike King Mr. Crappie Maxie Waxie
The most versatile bait of the release, Maxie Waxie, looks unassuming but definitely packs a punch. This bait is a small, grub shaped bait with two strands of rubber through the center to create a very realistic insect profile. The best way to fish the Maxie Waxie is on a 1/64 oz. Teen-Zee Sausage Head Jig under a cork. Small but mighty, the Maxie Waxie is deadly for a variety of species.

Bill Lewis Hammer-Trap
The Hammer-Trap is the newest offering from Bill Lewis in the lipless category, which they put on the map over 50 years ago. The Hammer-Trap’s name is derived from the incredible hammering action. This action, which will literally rock your rod tip, also activates the Tri-Tone sound chambers. In turn, this emits 3 distinct tonal frequencies as well as the next-level vibration. When stopped on the retrieve, the Hammer-Trap will fall with a fluttering action. The Hammer-Trap, which comes in 3/8 and 5/8-ounce is available in 16 pro-selected colors and comes equipped with Mustad Triple Grip hooks.
Bill Lewis PWC Lite
Following up on the success of Mark Romanack’s signature PWC (Precise Walleye Crank), Bill Lewis is rolling out a smaller version— the PWC Lite. While maintaining a strong, rolling-body action, the PWC Lite will have a bit of a tighter action than its big brother. It will also be perfect for warm water months and matching smaller baitfish. Everything else about the PWC Lite will be much like the original, larger PWC. A full-bodied sound will come from the customized rattle chambers and all PWC Lite’s will come equipped with oversized Mustad Triple Grip hooks.

Shimano ARMAJOINT 190SS Flash Boost
Shimano designed the ARMAJOINT 190SS FB to solve the challenges of casting a big jointed swimbait and the proprietary ARMABOOST technology significantly increases casting distance and accuracy by reducing unnecessary air resistance and the chances of the lure spinning during flight. As the angler casts the lure, ARMABOOST technology facilitates the lure to disconnect from an internal magnet and forces the body to fold into its compact shape. Once the lure hits the water, the lure’s body reengages with the magnet to create a smooth and natural swimming action. Swim in an S-pattern, but the bait will not flare out when stopped due to the fold in its body. ARMAJOINT also features Shimano’s proprietary FLASH BOOST technology that constantly emits a fish-attracting flash during the retrieve — even on the pause.
Shimano Swagy Spinnerbaits
Shimano’s Swagy spinnerbait incorporates an innovative tapered-wire design to add durability without sacrificing the lure’s vibration. The lower arm’s thicker (0.95mm) wire improves hookup ratios and adds durability.

Swagy’s head design incorporates both tin and tungsten while precisely placing the high specific-gravity tungsten on the bottom portion of the head to stabilize the swimming action during fast reel retrieves. Swagy offers two distinct blade configurations. The shape of the blade’s front cup creates a faster rise for extreme vibration.

a chunk on a finesse jig, we found this bait to be extremely effective on a Stealth Ball Jig Head hopped or
dragged along the bottom.
GREAT LAKES FINESSE 2.2” FLAT CAT
A thin tail provides maximum movement from a dead stick style presentation, and the body profile mimics a baby catfish, small goby, or minnow in the water or on the bottom. This bait is best fished as a dropshot or paired with our Stealth ball jig head and slowly dragged along the bottom. This bait features true neutral buoyancy, so it sits perfectly level in the water column and a matte shine-free finish, so it looks incredibly natural.
GREAT LAKES FINESSE 4” DROP WORM
Featuring true neutral buoyancy, the 4” Drop Worm stands perfectly horizontal on your hook, resulting in incredible lifelike action without any extra work from the angler. Add on the matte shine-free finish and it’s the ultimate finesse drop shot worm.
SNAGPROOF ZOO POP
Unleash the power of the Zoo Pop(TM) from SnagProof – this is one bad little bait that will rock (or pop!) your fishing world! With its incredible popping action that floats-at-rest, the Zoo Pop (TM) is a brings finesse fishing to power frog fishing and is an incredible bait that creates its own action. The super soft hollow body creates incredible popping action in a finesse profile that will get fish to go when larger profile frogs won’t . And thanks to the fully integrated hook design, the Zoo Pop (TM) stays “snagproof” even in heavy grass, pads and vegetation.
FREEDOM RAD SQUAREBILL
They call the RAD Squarebill the “High Rider” because it rides high in the water column and is designed to fish above emergent grass or in ultra shallow situations where too much dig will pull you out of the strike zone. The RAD Squarebill is awesome for covering water in shallow spawn conditions with its wide-angle hunting pattern. Dives to 2 feet, available in 12 colors and finished in premium black nickel hooks.
EVER GREEN BOW WORM NOODLE
Although a full 8-inches long, the EVER GREEN Bow Worm Noodle is intended for fishing weightless, wacky, Neko, or via dropshot. For example, when rigged wacky-style or on a dropshot hook, the Bow Worm Noodle undulates and coils with the slightest movement of the rod, the ultra-thin diameter soft plastic pulsing and writhing like a real nightcrawler. Add any amount of current and it’s even more lifelike. Besides its slinking movement, the Bow Worm Noodle features an EVER GREEN-formulated “Special Formula” scent comprised of real shrimp, squid, and baitfish impregnated into the salt-heavy plastic, thus encouraging more bites and bass to hang onto the artificial offering longer.
LIVETARGET ULTIMATE FROG STRIDE BAIT
When motionless, the LIVETARGET ULTIMATE FROG sits just like a living frog at rest, with its eyes just above the surface, its body angled 45-degrees down, and its legs contracted beneath its body. When twitched or pulled, the ULTIMATE FROG’s body dips beneath the surface as its legs hinge at the hips and knees, extending to full length in perfect unison – just like a living frog as it swims for its life through open water. With a body molded from ABS plastic and legs crafted from highly elastic and durable TPE, the ULTIMATE FROG is engineered to withstand the rigors of the surface battlefield. Both Popper and Finesse models are available in 2- and 2 1/2-inch sizes and 8 life-like colors.
