The flat-sided LIVETARGET® Pumpkinseed crank is so lifelike and realistic looking that real live pumpkinseed sunfish may actually try to school or spawn with it. Deadly for bass, pike, walleye and most musky, the LIVETARGET® Pumpkinseed is designed to mimic a fleeing sunfish with the same moderate wiggle and swimming action, pulse and vibration as found in nature. If Pumpkinseed’s authentic swimming action does not trigger fish target in and drop the hammer, the realistic markings, scale patterns, raised gill plates and eyes certainly will. Plus, with a strategic internal weight transfer system, the LIVETARGET® Pumpkinseed casts like a bullet so you can cover loads of water. Premium Daiichi hooks give the lip holding strength anglers will need.
Model PS57S: 2-1/4''; 1/4 oz; Dives 3'-4'. Model PS57M: 2-1/4''; 1/4 oz.; Dives 5'-6'. Model PS70S: 2-3/4''; 1/2 oz.; Dives 3'-4'. Model PS70M: 2-3/4''; 1/2 oz.; Dives 5'-6'.
Tip: Fasten the LIVETARGET® Pumpkinseed directly to the main fishing line or leader material using a clinch or loop knot. Do NOT use a terminal snap, as this may impede the swimming action.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adeemo87 Catch fish
These things catch fish... Ran parallel to the shoreline, cast at the shoreline and swim so well I have even trolled them. All sorts of retrieves can produce all sorts of fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RickHorror AMAZING LURE!
First off let me say that it is worth the price , I know at first its kind of hard to justify spending 14$ on one lure but its definitely worth it, anyone up on the fence about trying to decide whether or not to purchase it I would say go for it!!! It has amazing color especially when wet It has the wildest life like action of any hard swimbait/crankbait around truly one of a kind and a definite asset to any tackle box I used it in an extremely rocky area and the only scratches are on the lip and some nicks on the eyes but they didnt fall off or anything stupid they are high gloss and very life like doesnt surprise me at all really what do I expect? GREAT LURE!! GET THIS !!! I got the pumpkinseed and im sure soon I will own the entire collection of live target lures!! my new go to lure in clear water lakes!

There's no doubt that this lure will catch big fish, my first time using it in the 2 1/4" diving depth 4' version resulted in a 36+ inch Northern Pike. I would be able to upload the picture if the hook didn't straighten out, resulting in me losing the fish boatside. I understand the lures may not be made to handle such large fish but if you get in a tugging match with a big one (believe me you will), keep your fingers crossed that the hooks won't straighten out.

Close to the real deal. Runs tru. Cast well. Paint holds up.

Both of them will catch fish, however keep in mind that the matte finish will chip off more easily and get worn off fast if you're trolling. I would go for the matte finish if you're not trolling and the glossy finish if you're going to be trolling for long periods of time. I personally feel like the natural matte works better because it seems more natural but I've had success on both finishes for bass fishing.
I like to use the glossy in clear waters and the matte in stained to muddy waters . The flash in the glossy will help to attract attention and also help to mask any unrealness that the bait has in comparison to the real thing . In muddy waters the dule paint jobs will show up better believe it or not by not reflecting what little light there is to quickly . I would not be stubburn to these conclusions though because at time s either will work in both water types . Hope that helps out in some way .
Either one will work, but will have different applications while fishing. I use the small one to run parallel to the banks and the bigger for casting perpendicular to shore and retrieving into an open area.
I don't know about others but I use 1/2 oz. because I like bigger baits because I will trade off the more #'s of fish for the larger fish every time but I'm not a tournament fisherman anymore . I have had success with both though when others go with me . The shad baits are better by far out in the deep in to about 3ft. But these baits do draw the strikes in 8ft. to 1ft. and have had a few times when they were exactly what the fish wanted . Nearly all hookups you get are deep in the mouth and that is a very high praise that you can't claim to too many hardbaits . My experience with Hard baits is most hookups overall are not deep in the mouth but as I said these will more often than not . They are must have baits for all crankbait fisherman. Good Luck and tight lines .
