Drifter Tackle is a company dedicated to the scientific development and advancement of fishing tackle and accessories.
The company was built on the back of the famousBeliever®. The lure, originally available in 2”,3”,4”,5”,6”,7”,8” and 10” models, has been consistently producing record catches in both size and numbers of numerous species around the world. Muskie, pike, walleye, bass, stripers, salmon….you name it and the Believer® has caught it. The Believer has even been recognized by Muskies Inc. as one of the top 10 muskie lures of all times based on actual recorded catches. The Believer® is simply amazing.
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.
