Here’s a lure both the hard-water and open water fanatics will dig. New from Salmo is the Zipper, a small, rattling hardbait that was originally intended strictly as an ice jig. But then some of the Salmo folks started pitching it in thawed lakes and catching some serious smallmouths and walleyes. It’s a tough little bugger, constructed of Salmo’s unique hardened foam. I’m pretty excited about this one, as I’m already a big Salmo fan and like a good lure that’s got great action while mimicking very small forage.
