Lucky Craft® Sammy Topwater Lures are still the hottest lures going! Top-quality construction with ultra-realistic finishes. A superb "walk the dog" topwater with the water-spitting action of a popper. Glass rattles really call 'em in. Casts long; hits the water without diving.
Model 65: 2-1/2"; 7/32 oz. Model 85: 3-1/4"; 7/16 oz. Model 100: 4"; 1/2 oz. Model 115: 4-1/2"; 5/8 oz.
One of the Best.....
Top water lures I have ever used!!! My Spook and Spook Pup were my favorites until I finally broke down and went against my better judgement; paying $22+ for this lure 4 weeks ago.
And Sammy has served me better than any other topwater I have owned. I can't begin to count the number of Spots I have caught using this bait at various time of the day. Early-Mid morning especially. But the 2 I can remember were the best Stripers I caught so far, and they were from the bank. 8.5 and 10. (Drag set ever so lightly to avoid losing this $22+ investment)
I damaged the lure throwing to the dam wall (repeatedly - and it did take a beating), and still fished with it. I had broke one of the two steel wires. Well the one wasnt strong enough to keep a very nice Spot on last weekend. Sammy broke. And on my way home, I stopped at Bass Pro and picked up 3 more. 2 live Sammys and 1 Sammy 115.
Id recommend this lure to anyone. If you find where any bass are feeding, you wont have a problem using this lure.

Stick with Spooks
I got one of these from the Michigan BPS last month thinking it would outperform, boy was I wrong! Me and my buddy have our own little weight competitions twice a month to determine who pays for beers at the bar (after we get off the water of course). Well, it was a top-water day that day, and he was using a Orig. Spook (my favorite top-water) and I was using the Sammy. Needless to say he hauled in a nice total of 17 1/2lbs with a nice sized 4 1/2lber, and me? My Sammy put a measly 6 1/4lbs in the boat. It does catch fish, yes, but all in all if you want to go top-water walking the dog, stick to the spook for over half the price. Lets leave the Sammy to the people that think price has to do with performance. Tight lines!

Great product..... a must buy for every body!!!!
This lure is amazing after fishing with it for about 20 Min. off a dock at my local lake i had caught 4 fish the first was a 5 inch tiny blue gill who attacked the lure... viciously even though it was practically the size of him. It is also fantastic 4 bass there was a school of about 10 large mouth all around 2 to 3 lbs i caught 5 all on back 2 back casts. Then i caught a 23 inch chain pickerel he swallowed the lure like 4 inches down his throat with a bunch of sharp teeth it scratched the lure up a lot and even ripped the eye of... That is why i gave it 4 out of 5 stars. other wise it is a great lure and i can't wait to use it again!!!! Get the blue aurora color or MSMJ Shad works great!!!!!!!

This bait should be renamed "SLAMMY" 'cuz that is what it does to any fish that gets too close for a meal.
The drop tail is innocent looking, but a slight rod tip
or wind movement dances that bait in front of a fish.
Hungry or not, it will get eaten!
The drooping tail assures a deep hookset where you don't wait to feel the fish. You need to snatch and grab it!
I fish the #37(115) or #50(100) to match the bait.
I believe the glass rattles make this bait complete.
You can tease a fish with subtle motion or snatch it
to cause a slight wake. Big fish are always watching it!
The LC series are pricey but extremely durable and
well designed.-------and well worth the cost.

I've fished all over the US and found that every "local" thinks his lake tends to prefer a color he had the most success with.
I would use this pattern consistently where ever I fished. I would use: Bright colors in stained to murky water. Natural colors in clear water, high sunshine Black or dark colors toward evening. Match the bottom color
I've fished the 85 to the 115. Depends on the size of the bait. I have caught large and small bass on both. If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the 100 because of overall performance and the fact that I can cast it a mile.
I haven't fish anything but the size 100 sammy and i probably won't, i can cast it a mile and i have caught everything from small size bass ( even perch ) to large bass. I tend to only fish top water early in the morning but I decide to pitch a sammy between two trees with lots of cover late in the morning and nearly got my arm broke by a bass.
Yes, both are topwaters. Sammy will sit a little more "nose-up" on a pause. Gunfish is thinner and throws a bit more water, and has a more pronounced side-to-side action than the Sammy (and is easier to fish for beginners). Both work great.
Personally, I think the Sammy is easier to fish. The Gunfish takes some time and fish to learn how to use. You really need to let the fish tell you how they want the Gunfish. I have caught tons of bass on the Sammy.
i would prefer it for all of my topwater baits actually... looks more appealing if you ask me... i've had good results with black feathered trebles too... looks more like a baitfish :) sammys from the factory don't come with feathered trebles but the 3" gunfish does and it's perfect for schooling fish! tight lines!
