|Musky Mania Tackle burst onto the scene in 1992. Initial production was of a jerkbait called the "Burt™". For the first time, serious muskie and pike anglers had a jerkbait made of high-impact plastic that could withstand any punishment trophy fish could dish out. Burt was tough, good-looking … but was also quickly recognized as the best-hooking jerkbait on the market.|
Better hooking percentages were the reason Pete Maina, founder and designer of the Burt™, started the company. Following countless trophy catches on Burt, including the Colorado state record tiger muskie (53", 40lbs, 2 oz.), Musky Mania Tackle has expanded into one of the largest producers of big-gamefish products in the world! Hundreds of trophy fish in countless species are taken on MMT products annually.
In 1998, the introduction of the 6-inch Jake™ and Ernie™ crankbaits brought downsized versions of "proven-effective" designs to the forefront. These baits immediately proved deadly-not only for muskie and pike, but also for walleyes, bass, trout and a variety of saltwater gamefish. Since, MMT has expanded even further to offer everything from hard to soft plastics, as well as the premier line of related terminal tackle.In addition to offering a distinguished line of lures and terminal tackle, Musky Mania also offers a line of fishing-related merchandise.
