Strike King® Rage Tail™ Craw Softbait Lures
Man o man
I have been using these now for about 3 months so I felt I could do a decent review on them.
I started using the rage chunks as trailers on jigs so I felt I couldn't go wrong with these. I was right. These are so well built. Most quality baits that come in small quantities and are expensive, come apart and tear up with one or two fish. Not these. I found a spot here in central Oklahoma that the hybrid bass were tearing everything up. I caught about 25 in 2 hours. Most were 10-11 inches with the largest being 17" Not monster fish by anybody's standards, but they do fight like kings and are hard on baits.
I did have to re-hook the craw into a different slot due to being nailed several times, but I felt the bait held up really well for so many fish caught.
I have been using the blue black flake and the green pumpkin. Both of these colors work very well for the stained waters around central Oklahoma.
I cant tell if the coffee sent works or not, as I have some of these that have been sitting out for awhile in the garage and smell like plastic, but the experts and many others on several sites claim it does.
I would defiantly recommend these to anybody. You cant go wrong with these. They are kinda pricey for the amount you get, but very well worth it.

go 2 lure
This is my go to lure, when all else fails the craw always come thru for me. The only thing i don't love is the durability of the lure. 1 pickerel or several bass will do it in.

Few weeks ago when I read the reviews for the craw, I was a bit skeptical about how it would perform. Bought a pack of these in Watermelon Red Flake and a pack of 3/16 oz Terminator Jigheads. Went to a local lake, and rigged it Shakeyhead style. Started casting around in open water and left to my favorite corner; flipped and pitched into a shady area under a branch a few times a nice sized bass came and hit it but I missed. Cast it right in the same place, jigged it alittle and BAM, a 3lb Bass hits it. Same thing happened with the next bass and the next bass; caught 5 bass that day, 3lber, 2lber, and 3 1.5lber. I guess the coffee scent really does attract bass.

Best Craw Yet!
I've used many soft plastic craws and have found these to smoke all of the others, except a Sweet Beaver. I love those too! I use black and blue and Bama craw is bama bad!
