Top Pros And Cons Of The SMASH CRAB JNR
In this section, I go over the top pros and cons of the Chasebaits SMASH CRAB JNR.
Pros Of The SMASH CRAB JNR
The top pros of the SMASH CRAB JNR are the following:
1. Great Action
This lure has fantastic action. The legs and claws of the crab vibrate and wiggle in the water as it sinks and when it’s being retrieved. Fishing this lure in good moving current naturally will give it great action as well.
2. Very Durable
These are tough, strong and durable lures that hold up well against fish. They stretch and are designed to take a beating without breaking down. You can catch multiple fish with just one lure.
3. Sinks Slowly
Although this lure is relatively heavy for its size, it slow sinks nicely and allows you to effectively present it to fish.
Cons Of The SMASH CRAB JNR
Here are the cons of the SMASH CRAB JNR:
1. Makes A Big Splash
This lure makes a pretty big splash when you cast it out, which can spook fish if you cast too close to them.
2. Odd To Cast
The lure is kind of clunky to cast because of its shape. You have to cast it out like it’s live bait for it to be an effective cast.
Chasebaits SMASH CRAB JNR Video Review
In this video, I give you my top pros and cons of the SMASH CRAB JNR. I also give you my top retrieval techniques for this lure with some underwater footage as well.
This is a good lure for targeting fish that eat crabs – such as redfish, black drum and even tarpon.
The action of the lure is really unique and it is a strong and durable product.
It is a little odd to cast but once you figure it out, it should not be a problem.
