The "50 Best Lures" covers alot of different territory and are obviously not necessariy the best for a particular species....I think their overall idea was just general versatility and success of lures.

Anyway, a little interesting side note for me was the break down of the lures. In my way of creating catagories it was as follows.

Spoons 12
Cranks Baits 9
Top Waters 8
Jigs 5
Spinners 5
Soft Plastics 4
Minnow Baits 2
Stick Bait (soft-Sluggo) 1
There were 4 baits I was unsure as to what they exactly were and are uncatagorized.

There are a few that some might put into a little different catagory as they are a bit of a hybrid lure. Anyway, I thought it was interesting to look at the weighting of lure types in Field and Streams top 50 Lures.

Mmmm... Spoons, cranks, topwaters, spinners and jigs. That looks to be the top of the heap. Funny if you think about it... they've all been around for many years, albeit with new designs and colors. But the 'ol standbyes are still the top. Seems that someone would come up with something radically different, but it's still spoons, cranks, topwaters, spinners and jigs.
