NetBait Paca Chunk Senior Softbaits
As soon as I opened the package, I could smell the anise in the lure and it felt soft and supple. I rigged it with a 3/8 oz skirted football jig.
To test the lure, I went to a gravel point I knew had smallmouth bass, and after two casts in 16 ft. of water, a 16" bass hit the lure really hard. In the next cast another smallie attacked the lure so hard that it tore up the rubber skirt on the jig and chewed off one of the paca's claws. I ended up with 4 nice sized bass and all hit pretty hard.
I'm a believer in this lure, but have one complaint: it seems that the fish were hitting it so hard that the paca was not sturdy enough and the claws would get chewed off. Otherwise I would have given it FIVE stars!
But I guess it's a trade-off as a more sturdy lure might not have the same alluring movement in the water. I will buy a few more packs since I do get more bites.

Probably best pitching jig trailer out there!!!!
I have been fishing with the tiny paca craw before and due to the hollow body it slides. I even tried to put a couple o-rings on it and still slides after catching a bass two. So I decided to try the paca chunk on my jigs. The durability of the chunk is very good it starts to rip your 6-7 fish. It pushes just the right amount of water with a lot of action. Really nice trailer!!! LOVE IT!!!

Best bang for the buck!!!
These are the best jig trailers I have ever used. I usually use the green pumpkin and Alabama craw. I have read other reviews saying that the claws get bit off and such but that is going to happen with any trailer. I would rather use these and have to change several times a day than use the Strike King Rage Craw and pay around a dollar a pop.
