River2sea Dahlberg Clackin' Crayfish

It’s pretty obvious that I’m addicted to kayak fishing, but what many of you may not know about me is that I’m a certified lure junky!  So while out at ICAST I just could not help but stop and check out the thousands of new lures soon to hit the market.  This Clackin’ Crayfish was one of those many lures that peaked my interest.

I had previously written an article titled “River 2 Sea Lures” introducing the Diver Frog and the Clackin’ Crayfish.   So when I stumbled on the River2sea booth at ICAST I knew exactly what two lures I wanted to check out first hand.

Being that a large portion of the kayak fishing that I do is for bass and crawl fish are a “go-to” for me when it comes to bottom fishing, I just loved the way this crayfish looked and moved in the water.  

I have still yet to fish this lure (hint hint River2sea if you read this article) but watching this lure in the demo pool and on the YouTube videos, I think that this is really going to be a good lure to add to the arsenal.

Below is the info that they have published on their media kit:

"There are lots of lures that look like a crayfish when they’re sitting still, but they don’t “do crayfish” when you move them. Until now, that is! In addition to looking exactly like a real crayfish in every detail, the Dahlberg Clackin’ Crayfish’s amazing hinged lip appears to actually grab water and pull the critter forward, exactly like a real crayfish! On free fall it even sinks like a real crayfish!

You have to see it to believe it!

And believe me, when a bass sees this, whether on the fall, the swim, crawl or just sitting still, THEY BELIEVE IT!

You can fish it like a jig, or swim it along the bottom. Fish it on drops, flats or weedlines. I suggest you fish it like it was a real crayfish and make it seem during the retrieve that it’s alternately scurrying to escape and stopping to hide on the bottom. You know just what it’s doing ’cause you can feel the tail kick with your rod tip when you accelerate the lure.
Crawl it, stroke it, swim it, rip it, let it fall, hang on."

Check out a few of the photos that I took while at the River2sea booth.  (just click on the image to make it larger)

Man those look awesome... what is the price tag for one of these going to be?

They are about $13 at Tackle Warehouse. I ordered one with the frog last month but it was back ordered. When I get it I will do a review on them as well. The frog is awesome even though I've only fished it once since receiving it.
