STORM WildEye Live Crappie
good deal for the price
I have only used this bait twice, but it has caught a decent amount of bass on it so far. I have been using it in a pond that also has a small crappie population so I figured it would resemble a natural food choice. I actually even caught the first crappie of my life... A 13 incher, which I have been told is huge for oregon. The only drawback is that the tail gets bitten off easily on fish that don't hook up primarily. However, they are ess than $2 each since they come in packs of three so I'd say they are worth the price.

When they run true they are awesome
I have the sunfish versions. I have only seen a few reviews where this happens but honestly, aren't more people having this issue?
They don't run straight. My first package 2/3 kept running on their sides and I had to really work hard at swimming them true.
Second package 1/3 had the same issue.
They also hang very easily.
Now with that being said, the colors and looks, combined with the action (IF!) they are running true has landed me several lunker Smallies.

One of the best swimbaits out there
I have used this bait on numerous occasions to catch both large mouth bass and crappie. I must say i was surprised at the effectiveness, on my first two cast i caught two 1lb+ crappie and they inhaled it. Very durable, the only issue i've had with durability is the eyes when they get gulped up by hungry fish. That was only on one lure out of a 3 pack, the other two i have been using for two months with no durability issues and plenty of fish caught on them.

Greatest bait i've ever used!!
this bait is amazing i went fishing with it this afternoon after buying it and i destroyed the fish. I didn't catch one under 3 pounds, and i caught about 10 fish. My very first cast, it hit the water and i had a huge 7 on. unfortunately he threw it twice, but it was fun fighting him. The only disadvantage is that the tail broke off after about 3 fish. Storm has to fix that. But, other than that this bait was a masterpiece
