Lucky Craft Kelly J Prop Baits Hardbaits
Great product needs some work tho
I bought a few, tried one when my other topwater wasn't doing anything and found another great topwater bait in this one. I would say its more of a finesse type of type water seeing a lot of the fish i catch on it don't usually explode on it like a popper, they swirl and you set the hook like you would with a shallow crank or something similar, so this one is better for not over reacting when you see a fish blow up on the bait. Some do but that is always when i thought i fished the best area and reeling as fast as i can to get the bait back in, in this case its a buzzbait so that is major to getting a few more fish when you think your done and not gonna get a bite you do right by the boat:) I gave it 4 out of 5 cause of the hooks, not sure what the problem is but as someone else said the bait sinks, i put it in my fish tank just to see if my eyes were messing with me on the lake but it will sink as i gently set it in the tank and about 6" then rises to the top. Not sure if the hooks are the problem but i switched them to #4 Gamakatsu EWG on front and Gamakatsu feathered treble on the rear same size #4 and it didn't have that problem. Unsure what the issue is here but the hooks must be too heavy. Unsure, but not all of them i bought had this happen, don't know what is up there but i change all my hooks any way so whatever, its horrible for one who buys product and just fishes it out of the package, most people do that, i don't nor does any other pro. You want your own brand of hooks on your baits in your size choice, and always will have red hooks when possible.

This lure was advertised as a surface lure. Right out of the box it failed to float. After about 15 minutes of use it required holding your rod tip high and reeling
rapidly to get it on the surface. I can only assume it was leaking. Then I noticed a birds nest in my line at the rod tip. The lure was not running true but was instead rotating. I had to put an in-line swivel to combat the line twist. The finish is great and the White Bass loved it with 95% of the strikes occurring with the lure submerged. But I thought I was purchasing something that could be used over cover or grass beds.

fouls when cast
Truly a beautiful lure. I found it unfishable however as it tangled a high percentage of the time when cast. Maybe Kelly Jordon trolls it post-spawn.

This is my favorite topwater bait . I like it for a variety of conditions from schoooling bass over deep water,
to finding bass in grassbeds. Great action, you can deadstick it or fish it like a small buzzbait.
