Strike King Baby Rage Craw

Recommended Posts

I want to start using this bait for smallies. What's the best way to rig for fishing reserviors with rocky bottoms from 1-15ft of water. And what's everyone's go to color? I guess I can't go wrong with green pumpkin.

I use original Hybrid. The purple smoke blends well in stained water; green is virtually invisible

in gin clear water and clear looks cool on silver reels!

Rig it like Roadwarrior said, or I use it as a jig trailer on smaller jigs. I like the summer craw color the best.

I use them on a shaky head or a jig trailer.

I've had good results using them on 3/0 size swimbait hooks (1/8 oz. belly weighted) with the spring retainer at the eye. And I wouldn't think about using the "Smallie Beaver" size.....they like the standard size Beaver much better! :)

For smallies, I'd start with a light (1/8oz) Tungsten weight, and Tx rig it on a 3/0 hook. I also like it with a 2/0 keel-weighted hook, and as a jig trailer. When the fish are keying in on bait fish, I'll throw a Pearl Baby Craw on a sexy shad swim jig, and knock 'em out! I have caught plenty of smallies with it on a drop shot, too.

If snagging grass isn't an issue, I like a 1/4 oz jighead, exposed hook. Otherwise, I like a Slider Pro in 3/16 or 1/4 oz.
