Lucky Craft Sammy Topwater Lures
My first experience
I usually have only ever fished for bass. I'm starting to do more inshore fishing from my kayak but mainly all my experience comes from bass fishing. Until this lure, I had always used either spinner baits or plastic worms. Needless to say I'm a complete beginner when it comes to top water plugs. This lure smashed the learning curve for me and performed amazingly the first time I used it. Sure watching a video and reading up on 'walking the dog' helped me understand the concept but it just seemed way to easy with this lure. If you never fish topwater and always use plastics I recommend you buy this lure and just try it out. It has completely changed the way I will fish for bass and it will probably do the same for you. I plan on trying all the colors/sizes but my first lure is the Sammy 100 Ghost Minnow. It seems to be doing the trick so far!

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.

Lucky Craft makes high dollar lures and the sammy is worth the money. Fish can't resist the size 100 american shad and ghost blue shad. You could probably try beating the fish off with a paddle and it probably wouldn't do you any good! You can cast them a mile which is good for open water and schooling fish. Thanks to Lucky Craft I have a lure I can use to out fish everyone else in our crew when we fish in the moring!

Good not Great
This bait will catch fish thats why I gave it a four. But it doesn't have the best swimming action and isn't noisy like they claim. All in all you can get the same results out of the Zara or Spit n image for less money.
