A natural extension of the wildly successful Skitter Pop, the Skitter Prop is a floating balsa lure featuring a water-churning stainless steel propeller that sputters like a wounded baitfish in trouble and then dives and rolls like no other. Try the jerk then dead stick method, a straight retrieve or jerking the Skitter Prop. 2-3/4''; 1/4 oz; Hook size 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garstak extraordinary prop bait..
Caught many bass between 6 and 10 pounds on this topwater bait.. To my suprise, in salt water, I hooked into some nice size Cudas and a Jack that took me 40 minutes to bring in... I had to play it easy; unsure if the hooks would bend. It has that old Rapala magic!! Recommend it to all!

i used this as my go-to top-water lure this Spring and it did not disappoint. start/stopping it seemed to work well. most of the strikes happened during the pauses. it's a relatively quiet lure, so it doesn't deter the small fish, but the big fish like it too. i had one short-strike it several times before i eventually caught him after several casts. it sounded like someone dropping a bowling ball in the water. whether you already love prop baits, or are just interested in trying one, this one will make a good addition to your arsenal.

I bought this in frog colour and it worked! I cought my biggest bass this season on this thing. the fish are always hiting this bait during a pause. I think that it is the propeller that drives the bass out after the pause. Also very hard to break.

i like both but the method I use I perfer the spitor but the fish tell you from year to year let alone day to day or where the sun location. over the year i have a lot of torpedos clear in clear water thrown agains the bank just a little pull of blade, chain hooks and add spit rings you don't lose as many
The lure works great for small mouth or pike. So far as color the chartruse shades are killer on both those fish. Keep in mind with topwater the fish see only momentary flashes of the top colors so action and how you work the lure is very important. Cast and let the rings settle out then moving the lure is a great starting point. Let the fish read the menu.
I change the the retrive if I don't get any strikes.. Sometimes I cast it and leave it a minutes until the ripples disapear and jerk it again.. Other times I use short jerks every few seconds, Stop, then try the same pattern.
It's been my experience that waiting a minute or two after the lure hits the water, then using a jerk/twitch and stop and go combined retrieve works best for bass. Pickerel seem to like the steady retrieve, and will usually follow it right to the boat or smack it not too far from the boat.
Well, for me i like to jerk it because it makes alot more noise than to just steadily retrieve it, stop and go but jerk it,and also to reel it underwater, i like to put my rod tip just an inch underwater. Hope this helps.
