Looking for a big craw trailer

Recommended Posts

Guys and Gals I need some help.  I'm looking for a mega craw/jig trailer.  What is the biggest craw trailer you know of.  I'm looking for something bigger and bulkier then a Rage Lobster.  This can be custom poured by a company or brand.  It doesn't matter.  Thank you!

I have used a Zoom toad in the past.

There's a guy on a swimbait page that pours one that's about 8" long, over an inch in diameter,  I think it is close to 1.5oz of plastic unrigged. Not sure exactly how big you're looking.

I've used a Gene Larew 6" Hawg Craw for many years when I want a large craw type trailer. I usually trim about 1" - 1 1/2" off and thread it on the hook. I've also used the 5" Larew Biffle Craw.

D & M makes a 5 1/2" craw that fishes big, and they are top quality with good color selection. D & M also have custom lures you might check with them.

3 that come to mind are reaction innovations double wide beaver 5.2"and Berkley papa pit boss and jumbo chigger craw both 5". Of these the double wide would be the bulkiest.

Years ago I found a craw trailer sitting in the water along the edge of the lake that was huge, like 6"-7" and it was a realistic craw, not stylized like most craw trailers are. In fact, it looked pretty real when I first saw it, like a baby lobster in the lake, lol.

 

I started trying to find out who made such a big craw, searching online, to no avail. It turned out that it must have been in the lake for years and had a real high salt content, because as it dried out over a few days, it shrank to half its size.

 

It's weird to me that nobody sells something like that. There were some molds out there at one time, who knows where they are now.

 

I wouldn't try a stylized big craw, personally. They work in smaller sizes, obviously, but when they get that big, they don't really resemble a crawfish.

Havoc 5" pit boss is my go to when I want bulk on the back of a jig. Usually bite the first 1/2" off so it is square up top and makes the skirt flare more. Looks good on the back of an enraged series jig.

Why not go with the Magnum Rage Bug? It's bulkier than the Lobster.

There's longer ones out there for sure but as far as shear bulk the Magnum Baits 6.25" Mauler is pretty huge.

This is the one I was talking about, next to a Romanmade Mother for scale.

If I am going big, I like the Power Team Conviction Craw. It’s 4.5”, but it has a lot of bulk, and it looks like a lobster when rigged on a jig. Great bait on its own, but still practical enough in size to rig on a jig. Lots of bulk, good movement, durable plastic, and their colors are great.
