It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. That may not be the case if you’re in an area that rarely sees snow outside, but chances are the Christmas trees in stores — and if you’re lucky, the general holiday cheer — are signs that the most wonderful time of the year is upon us. It’ll be even more wonderful when your Christmas shopping is finished.

Yo-Zuri Crystal 3D Minnow Jointed
This minnow lure comes in two models — floating and deep diving. The floater is a shallow-running “waker” bait, with a triangle lip that allows it to be fished slowly. Eight of the 16 available colors employ ultraviolet coatings that reflect existing light. The castable waker measures 5 1/4 inches and weighs 3/4 ounces; the trolling diver is 5 1/4 inches long and weighs 7/8 ounces. Prices range from $17.99 to $19.99.

Lazer TroKar Lancet Circle HooksLazer TroKar, an Eagle Claw brand, says its Lancet Circle hooks pierce and penetrate the toughest mouths that cruise the oceans. The TK3 (offset) and TK4 (nonoffset) hooks are a light-to-medium wire circle with a wide gap and welded eye in sizes 1/0 to 9/0. All feature a black-chrome finish over high-carbon steel and a symmetrically engineered three-sided point. Lancet Circles cost $21.99 per package; piece count varies per sizes.
