Kelly Jordon says, ''It’s like throwing live bait.'' With its deep-bodied profile, ultra-natural coloration, and easy-spinning front and rear prop blades, Lucky Craft's Kelly J Prop Bait ''flicks'' along like a bream attempting to rob a nest. Deadly during post-spawn and anytime bass and bait share the shallows.

The baits finish and look is great but the bait sits so low in the water and doesnt allow the plug to work correctly. It almost sinks.The action is nowhere near as good as other prop baits. It is a shame because the plug looks great,other baits work better for less money.

Casts easy. Props spin effortlessly like on ball bearings. A specialty bait for certain situations. Only slight miss - the ghost color was almost as strong as the regular, non-ghost color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FIGJAM Great Buzzbait that you can STOP!
I really do like to use a buzzbait but after many misses even with trailer hooks, I had to look for something a little different. I learned of this bait last year and have caught so many fish on it that I have lost count. I eventually lost my first one and bought 4 more in many different colors. I usually throw it out, let it sit for 4-5 seconds, give it a couple of twitches, let it sit for 3-5 seconds and repeat all the way back to the boat. Usually, on the pauses is when you will get tattooed. If you see swirls as you pull it and they miss, you need to slow down more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Micropterus64 Very effective lure!
I have had great success with the Kelly J both times I have used it. Most effective using subtle wrist movement during retrieve to generate the erratic splashes and pauses. This lure should be fished with a bait caster rather than an open spinning reel. the spinning reel has a tendency to wrap the line around the props on retrieval. With a bait caster and mono filament it is awesome! Also avoid big hook sets and opt for a sweep and retrieve, like using a circle hook for hook ups. A big hook set pulls the lure from the fish's mouth. This is now my favorite prop bait!

Lays on its belly like a torpedo with 2 props. It only dives 1-3" when you pull hard. If you dont twitch it very hard it stays on the surface.

It will dive if the wings don't fold out and you reel it to fast. It has stayed on it's belly if I twitched it, but for me, the best thing to do is throw it out there and start retriving the lure at the pace that will allow the lure to flop back and forth, I very seldon let the lure just sit there, it doesn't seem to work as well as casting and retriving the lure when it hits.
