Joe Bucher Outdoors TopRaider Hardbait
Huge PIke Go Crazy
We fished in Northern Manitoba, Cormorant Lake in August, 2011.Wish we had more than one of these The Pike went crazy over the loon model. Largest Pike caught on this was 44 1/2" - caught quite a few in the 36" to 40" range. The only down side was that so many big fish hit it that they finally punctured it and it filled with water. We drained it and continued fishing.

Very happy with the lure! Finish and over all quality. The only reason for the 4 star rating is because the paint could be a little more durable. Once you hit the spinning tail and make a paint chip it spreads seemingly with every cast. I took this lure out and tied it on and the very first cast I caught a 25" Muskie. I bought it in the Bullfrog color.

Must have topwater
This is not my first Topraider. I use this lure so much they get beat up from toothy critters and rocks. Excellent all season long. I have crushed a lot of muskies on it but it'll catch bass and pike too.
Any serious musky angler will have a couple of Topraiders in their box.

Best muskie topwater
This lure is better than chuggin a red bull to wake you up early in the mourning when the water looks like glass and the muskies are rollin! My favorite color is bullfrog. Tie one on and get ready to make a memory!
