2022 ICAST new products preview

When July comes around, it's time to get your first look at the innovations of the fishing industry at the annual International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, or ICAST. Each year before the show, B.A.S.S. asks every company we can what new products they will be showing, and here's over 100 of the products coming soon to a tackle store near you.
Berkley Slobberknocker
Berkley Labs scientists created an innovative through-head design that is completely different from other bladed jigs, also fine-tuning the unique design for consistent vibrations. The jig is ideal for coming through heavy cover, adding another dimension to the bladed jig category. Featuring a signature hand-tied Berkley silicone skirt infused with PowerBait flavor to help ensure that every fish that bites will hold on longer, it also features a chip-resistant paint finish and sticky sharp Fusion19 hook. And, to match the hatch, it's available in 12 premium forage matching colorways. $13.99. berkleyfishing.com

Some saltwater baits cross over to bass fishing, and this collaboration between Catch Co. and Mike Bucca’s legendary Bull Shad Swimbait is an example. This jointed swimbait comes in at 5.5”, 1.5oz, and is built to last with high-grade components like 3x saltwater grade hooks and heavy-duty rotating hook hangers. $19.99. shopkarls.com

A head with a keel-shape for running true at high speeds, and a proprietary collar to increase skirt flare are standout features of the Speed Freak.

Available in largemouth and smallmouth versions, and multiple sizes and colors. $7.99. americanbaitworks.com

Available in two sizes and 16 colors. $8.99. americanbaitworks.com
Googan Squad Bumper
Like the name implies, the Googan Squad Bumper is a double Colorado bladed spinnerbait designed to bump off cover and grass. The Bumper is designed to be fished around docks, stumps, and brush while also streamlining through the veggies with ease. Each Bumper features a strong wire framework, stout hook, and two flashy Colorado blades. Cast and retrieve at slower speeds around cover like docks, wood, rock, or grass. The Colorado blade has higher resistance in the water compared to a willowleaf blade so it can be reeled slower and provide extra thump and vibration. $6.99. shopkarls.com
Nichols Lures Catalyst Spinnerbait 
Designed around an Owner hook, each Catalyst is plated in either 24k Gold or Nickel for ultimate durability and style. Engineered with G3 Level Curvature, the Catalyst is finished with a Pro-Tie skirt and custom Nichols Lures blades. Nicholslures.com
BBZ Bio-Rat
When Bill Siemantel set out to build the new FishLab rat bait, he wanted to create something that could be fished in a variety of ways, for a wide range of species. “I wanted to produce something that would make fishermen drop their jaws. I wanted to create a rat that wasn’t just a wake bait that had been done before, but something new and unique from the minute details of how it looks to the versatility of how and where it could be fished.”
The BBZ Bio-Rat pushes the limits of what anglers imagine a rat can do or how it can be fished. BBZ Bio-Rat combines the realistic features and looks of a live rat with the ability to be chugged, popped, ripped, slow-rolled and even made to perform a unique walk-the-dog that you simply cannot produce with other baits in this or any other category for that matter. $21.99 Fishlab
Googan Squad Rival 7"
This magnum glide bait is 7" and weighs 2.1 ounces, making it ideal for the biggest bass in the lake. With its single joint construction, the Rival has a wide glide when twitched, with the ability to turn and stare down following bass with 180-degree turns. With premium, forage imitating colorways and heavy-duty construction, the Rival is designed to catch the fish of a lifetime. $29.99.

Livetarget Live Craw
Livetarget strikes again, taking no shortcuts to design yet another realistic bass forage lure. The Live Craw features a unique swing weight system that ensures a horizontal profile as the craw naturally falls through the water column, or crawls across the bottom. Three interchangeable weights allow anglers to fine tune the Live Craw’s rate of decent through the water. The swing weight ensures the bait is slightly off balance, creating a lifelike wobble as the lure descends or is worked across the bottom. The ABS plastic body stands up to abuse in wood or rock, while buoyant, high-action TPE legs create nervous fluttering action during all phases of the retrieve. Equipped with a low frequency knock, and armed with a heavy-duty Mustad hook. Available in 2 1/2- and 3-inch sizes. $14.99. livetargetlures.com
Shimano World Pop 69F FB

SPRO CJ Outsider Crankbaits
Bassmaster Elite Series pros John Crews, and Chris and Cory Johnston designed a uniquely different lineup of crankbaits.

The MR 60 is slightly bigger (60 mm) and heavier (5/8 ounces) for medium running from 7 to 9 feet. The DD 80 is the biggest Outsider tuned for fishing in 19 to 21 feet.

Spro Demon 55
Designed for aggressively fishing intermediate depths, the 3/8-ounce, 55 mm long Speed Demon excels in fast retrieves for covering water and finding feeding bass.
