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.
