ICAST 2013 – New Matzuo Marianne Huskey Signature Series

by August 2, 2013


We were fortunate to meet Marianne Huskey at ICAST 2013 at the Matzuo booth.  Marianne’s many accomplishments include 2012- Pro-Am Angler of the Year – The first woman to win Angler of the Year in any species competing in the Pro-Am format against all males.


Matzuo had announced Marianne’s new Signature Series of lures at the show, including the Kinchou Minnow. We asked Marianne about her sponsor, Matzuo, and the new lures.


“Matzuo has set themselves apart from other companies with this new Kinchou Minnow that was launched at ICAST in 2012. The flared gills and the nervous action of the bait are like no other bait on the market. I am finding most of the walleyes are taking the entire bottom half of the bait in there mouth; they really like it.”



Marianne told us, “My current go-to bait for the Matzuo Kinchou Minnow is the size 11 Tiger Perch color. This is a deep diving crank bait that will reach depths up to 25-ft. Currently on Green Bay in WI I have been catching walleyes ranging from 22″ to 30″ on this bait while trolling. The fish have been feeding in the water depth of 20′ – 26′ of water. They are located approximately 12 to 15-ft down. Therefore, I have been using Trilene 10-lb test big game mono with a line counter and letting out 60 to 80-ft of line to obtain the depth of 12 to 15-ft. ”
