Top Fishing Lures Under $15

No matter how experienced an angler is, there's just something special about getting new fishing lures. Whether it's a large muskie plug or a small spinning spoon fit for a stocking, having something new to try is a big part of why fishing is so much fun.


However, finding the right lure for the angler who has everything can be tough, even though having duplicates is handy in case you lose one. If you're hoping to get a lure that you know your angler friend doesn't have, try one of the five newly-released lures listed below.

Live Target Field Mouse

Warning: this lure is not for those with a queasy stomach. The Koppers Live Target Field Mouse took home the Best Soft Lure at ICAST 2011 thanks to an intricate design that?s so lifelike, you?d swear it was real. Mice may not seem like the most conventional bait for fishing, but ambush predators like bass and pike will not think twice about snacking on them. For best results, cast this hollow-bodied weedless lure near shore along the top of pads and grass mats.

MSRP: $10.99

Storm Rockin' Shad

A lipless crankbait that makes a lot of noise, the Storm Rockin? Shad is graced with external scales and 3D Holographic Eyes, an exterior that adds an enticing sense of realism. Comes equipped with a multi-ball rattle that is loud and raspy when ripped or retrieved. On the fall the bait sinks head down with side-to-side "Rockin'" action, transmitting an intermittent cadence rattle. Backed with premium black nickel VMC treble hooks.

The River2Sea Twin Vibe is a realistically-shaped vibrating bait, perfect for covering water in a hurry. The lure gets its name from the two line ties on its back. These line ties change the center of gravity, allowing the angler to use the front position for a shallow retrieve and the rear position for a deeper one. Contains two sharp Daiichi treble hooks.

Spro "Russ Lane" Fat Papa 55

Spro Fat Papa 55

Designed by B.A.S.S pro Russ Lane, the Fat Papa 55 is specially made for cold water fishing, from late fall right through to the prespawn. It has a tighter wiggling action than the larger Fat Papa 70, and rather than being silent, the Fat Papa 55 rattles. The rattle also serves as a weight transfer system, allowing the Fat Papa 55 to cast extremely far for its size, and helps it dive deeper than other baits in its class as well. Equipped with super sharp #4 Gamakatsu trebles and available in a variety of colors, including some custom painted colors designed by Russ Lane himself

MSRP: $10.99

MSRP: $12.99
