Here it is—the lure that revolutionized musky fishing. The Joe Bucher Outdoors Depthraider Crankbait opened new doors and new water for anglers who previously had only fished the surface level with jerkbaits and spinners. Joe Bucher's Depthraider enabled casters and trollers alike to target big Esox holding deeper in the water column, especially around key underwater structure, and it remains one of the deadliest subsurface musky lures around. Floats at rest, and dives aggressively on the retrieve; the depth achieved will vary depending on line type and diameter, amount of line out, and speed of retrieve. Its natural tail-up buoyancy allows the lure to back out of trouble, so you can crash most hard structure with minimal hang-ups. Rugged through-wire construction with heavy-duty hardware. Great for saltwater slashers too!
