Lucky Craft Real Bluegill

The Lucky Craft Real Bluegill is a medium sized swimbait at 5 7/8" and weighing 2 5/8" ounces. It has some size to it, but it is definitely not one of the 10" swimbaits that are becoming so popular out west. It retails for right at 20 bucks and for a hard bait manufactured in Japan I feel this is a very good price.

This swimbait can be worked several different ways. It will fall perfectly straight and sit upright on the bottom, which could be a good tactic for bed fishermen. It can be used as a wakebait when retrieved faster and with the rod tip high. It can also be retrieved at a steady retrieve and will get down to about 5 feet. The lure swims with a fairly tight "S Motion," and emits a slight rattling sound due to the knocker in the bait.

Most of my uses of the bait have been with a steady retrieve and fishing it around that 5 foot mark. It has caught several bass ranging in size from 1 pound to just over 6 pounds, so it will catch bass that you would think would have no reason to hit a lure that size.

This swimbait is a high quality hard swimbait that can be had for right around 20 bucks and the action is very good. If you are not in a spot to throw a 9 ounce 10" swimbait, give this Lucky Craft bait a look!
