Yum Christie Craw

Recommended Posts

They are big and move a lot of water. Great for muddy water. I mostly use them t-rigged on a 3/0 wide gap hook.

I use them as a finesse toad.  No weight, retrieve on surface.  More subtle than most toads.  Great for calm water.

Never thought of that. Gotta give it a try. Thanks.

I use them as my black and blue jig trailer. They look big and awkward but truth be told, those big flappy claws kick JUST like a rage craw or catch co saw craw. Makes for a nice swimming action.

I use em as a jig trailer when I don't want to go through a pack of chigger craws. Some times I'll go through chigger and chigger if the bluegill are aggressive. Lot cheaper to use these than $6 chigger craws.

Chiggers are $4.50 on TW.

The Yum Christie Craw is an awesome plastic; I like to pitch these plastics with 3/0 EWG hooks and 3/16 oz bullet sinkers; but I’ve also caught a load of largemouth just swimming them inches below the surface.

One of my favorite jig trailers out there. I go through bags and bags of them a year. Black and blue and green pumpkin/purple are my staples, which reminds me I'm almost out of black and blue. They're a solid bait for flipping weeds too. They have a beefy enough body to hold a flipping hook, but they're compact enough to get through the weeds easily. 

I went throught ALOT of black and blue on my jigs in these 2 days.

I am also a fan of them. They make for a great swim jig and chatterbait trailer, but I'll  flip/pitch  them on t-rigs too. I use 3 colors, black/blue, green pumpkin purple, and watermelon candy.

 

They swim/kick very well at slow speeds, which make them a solid cold water swim jig trailer. They don't come as nicely packaged as rage craws, and sometimes have a bent/deformed claw, but @$2.99 a bag I can deal with it. Even the ones with slightly askew claws always catch fish.

Nice. Glad I bought them now.

Use them pretty regularly-especially when I want to "swim" a bait some distance between "stops."  Those flappers really get moving.  But really, I don't differentiate that much.  They're just good solid "jig" baits.
