Boyd Duckett's Classic winning craw!
2007 Bassmaster Classic® champ Boyd Duckett flipped a Berkley Chigger Craw, Texas rigged on 65-pound braid with a 1-oz. tungsten weight and a 5/0 hook. The wind had pushed the vegetation into tight mats, so a heavy weight was needed to punch through the cover and get the craw in front of the big largemouth that were shading underneath. As it turned out, the Chigger Craw caught the two biggest bass of the tournament!

Regarding the Berkley PowerBait Chigger Craw, Boyd Duckett says, "When the fishing gets tough and the fish aren't feeding, most anglers slow down. I believe in speeding things up to make the fish hit in a reactionary manner. I attribute my win at the 2007 Bassmaster Classic to the fact that I sped up and optimized on the reactionary bite. To do this, I will rig a Chigger Craw onto a 1- or 1-1/2 oz. weight and pitch it into the heavy grass, trees, etc. The special design makes the arms flap really quickly. The speed of the bait going down through the water column and the fast action of the arms will draw that reactionary bite you're looking for!" Try it on a jig, Texas or Carolina rig, or weightless—deadly!
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 133 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by does the trick i've only ever used the 3" black with blue flakes, and i like it tx rigged or on a small jig. if you're looking to catch some bass, tie one of these on. it's definitely one of the most effective plastics i've used. i like the action of the claws, so i can't really complain about the way they tear off, because i imagine if they were less flimsy they wouldn't have the same enticing action. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chigger Craw What a great clear water bait....I rig the 4" size texas style.....and use the 3" size on a Jig. June 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Flippin Bait Great price, effective bait. One of my favorites. Claws won't stay around long if they are short-striking though. May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Only crawfish type plastic I use These are great baits that can used in a variety of ways. The only negative I can say, is the pinchers have a tendency of being bit off by fish. The positives far outweigh the negatives though because they simply catch fish. April 23, 2013

I have a lot of 4/0 EWG hooks, but I'm not sure if those hooks are too large for this bait, so is downsizing to a 3/0 ok or should I stick with the 4/0 hook?

The 4/0 hook is fine. When I use this bait I use the 4/0 hook. I also use the 4" version. Because sometimes the bass will just go after the claws and you need a bigger hook for that purpose.

A: 
They will work on ledges during the fall months or jigged around cover.. I'm from the area and if you just fish them slow they work good.. You should use Culprit's Creature Craw though it is much more durable and better for the money.

Staff Answer
A: 
Bass tend to feed up during the fall period in anticipation of the oncoming winter months. Using baits with larger profiles such as the Berkley Chigger Craw can pay big divedends because the fish can easily hone in on the bait and because they are looking for much larger meals than they would be in the hot summer or cold winter months. Try using this bait as a football jig trailer or throwing on a stand-up style jig head to help mimic the look of a large real life crawfish.
Details: 
I seem to have it turn upside down on me when dragging with a bullet weight in the 3 inch version. Do you reccomend going weightless or maybe a different hook size...ive been using size 1 or 2 with the three inch,other sizes seem to be to big for the 3 inch.

A: 
I always use 3/0 EWG hooks with the 3" size. It doesn't really matter if it goes upside down when the bass eats the bait. It's small enough that it doesn't effect the hook set when the bass inhales the bait.

A: 
Rarely do I fish these weightless but I guess it depends on where the bass are in the water column and how aggressive they are. What do you mean by upside down? With the pincers up or down? If they are up, that's really the most (more) natural position for a crawdad.

I've had no problem using 3/0 and 4/0 hooks.

A: 
I use them weightless on the rivers and they are perfect for smallies. If you must use a weight for lake fishing to get to the bottom faster try using a slipshot tied below the hook.

A: 
Generally I Texas-rig the bait with about a 3/8 ounce pegged bullet weight. If I want a little extra bulk and flair, I'll place a skirt between the bullet and the lure and peg the weight snug against the lure. It is much more weedless than a standard jig yet hooks quite well.

It makes a good swim jig (with those fluttering pincers) but most of the time I hop it slowly with short or long pauses between hops.

A: 
It can be fished many ways. Carolina rigged, Texas rigged, or weightless,. We add a small split shot about a foot or less above the lure, and we drag it real slow with a short fast tug, every once in a while. That way the split shot disturbs the silt on the bottom, making the Chigger Craw look as those it is scooting to run away from the Bass.

A: 
Texas rig with 4/0 wide gap worm hook and 3/8 oz bullet weight. This is how I fish it 90% of the time. I either SLOWLY bounce it along the bottom OR swim it along with a few stops for second. Bass will often hit it on the fall due to the natural flapping of the claws. Sometimes I'll put a brass clacker between knot and bullet sinker for a little clicking if I'm fishing a soft bottom or woody area.

you can rig them however you want and you should see action. they do work good for me weightless as long as all i am doing if flipping them under tress and the bass swarm on them. what's been working best for me is using the mister twister weighted keeper hooks. i believe i am using size one but don't quote me. they are hooks i have had for years. i want to say 1/4 oz weight i think. you may have to go heavier since they tend to resist casting very far. the claws also give me a little better natural action weighted.
