CW Crab

Lure Make & Model

Lure type:
MSRP ($):

Serious kayak fishermen know it's all about matching the hatch. It's a well known fact that ALL inshore gamefish love to eat baby crabs. The "CW CRAB" is a patented crankbait lure, that has been in development for over fifteen years. The idea was to create a lure that looked and tracked like a real baby crab. No matter how the lure lands in the water it immediately inverts to the retrieval position. Once in the water the clear keel and bill disappear, giving the embossed legs a suspended appearance. When retrieved in water all of these realistic features come together to perfectly imitate a live baby crab.

Pros & Cons

Looks Good Enough To Eat

I always keep an eye out for lifelike artificial baits. I found this one and had to try it. It comes in green, brown and blue colors.

Types of Fish Caught
It has proven successful on Redfish. I have also caught a coupe Black Drum but so far no Sea Trout have hit it. My cousin caught a Large Mouth Bass in a brackish tidal river.

How To Fish It
It dives or sinks slowly unless cranked and remains in the strike zone for a long time. I find that it works well when letting it drift over grasses and oyster bars. I also fish it by casting it up a creek on the falling tide and when it is over the hole at the creeks mouth cranking it down and pausing it. Most strikes happen at the pause.

The only problem is that if cranked down over snags it does tend to hang up but no more so than other lures with treble hooks. I do occasionally have to tune the lure to run straight.

Would I Recommend It?
Yes, especially if you are targeting Reds. It is a versatile lure to fish in a variety of environments. I rate it a 4 out of 5 because of the specificity to Reds.
