Rated 1 out of 5 by Jon3856 Extremely disappointed in this lure
I apologize for the glowing recommendation in my earlier review of this lure. Today I realized that the 1/16-oz. Luck-E-Strike imitations of Norman’s MG1 Sand Shrimp aren’t worth two dead flies. I couldn’t get them to wiggle or run straight – they simply came through the water like a jig or twirled like crazy all the way end, no matter how hard I tried to "tune" them so they would run straight. (When trolling, you want a jig which vibrates, so you can tell when it picks up a weed, gets nipped by a fish, or bounces off the bottom). My fishing partner trolled an MG2 for a good long while and it had the proper “wiggle.” So I will attempt to return the 8 remaining Luck-E-Strike Craw Pappies to Bass Pro for a refund. Regrettably, the 1/16-oz. Craw Pappies are no good, and I say that after using the Normal MG series of lures for years, with great success. I really had high hopes for the Craw Pappies when I ordered a dozen from Bass Pro, sight unseen.
