The Chasebaits SMASH CRAB JNR is a lure that is making a lot of noise in the fishing world right now.

It’s a realistic and tough crab lure that can be used a number of different ways to target inshore species.

This is one of three crab lures made by Chasebaits and is the middle-sized one.

After using this lure for a good period of time and catching some fish with it, I wanted to give you my honest review of it.

In this review, I go over the top pros and cons for the Chasebaits SMASH CRAB JNR. I also show you how to retrieve this lure in the video review at the bottom of the article.

Top Pros And Cons Of The SMASH CRAB JNR

Pros and Cons of 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.

Conclusion

SMASH CRAB JNR

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.

Tony, you show how durable when stretched, but do you have any experience with fish biting through it? Worried about Pinfish and Puffers taking those legs off.

Thanks,
Jim
