Z-Man Kicker CrabZ Review [VIDEO]
Currently, other crab lures and baits out on the market look super realistic and appeal to the angler, but the action is minimal.
In an effort to mimic natural crab movements and behavior, Z-Man designed the Kicker CrabZ.
The Kicker CrabZ is a soft plastic lure made to look like the body of a crab with a kicking claw extending off its side.
Z-Man’s objective was to create a lure that imitates the behavior of a real crab and doesn’t need to be constantly retrieved in a specific way.
The majority of crab lures have pre-mounted hooks and appear to look exactly like real crabs due to over-the-top detail.
Z-Man focused their efforts on the action of this lure.
As far as application, this lure is designed to be slow-moving with more finesse.
Unlike other crab lures, you can rig the Kicker CrabZ up weedless.
Oftentimes, we are fishing around lots of grass or another structure and a weedless application eliminate those headaches.
Furthermore, inshore fish like redfish and others root around in the mud for crabs and once they have a meal in sight, they commit.
Redfish instinctively inhale crabs in an effort to break their shell open so they can eat quickly.
Due to the buoyant material Z-Man uses in their lures, the crab arm extending off of this lure points to the surface when sitting on the bottom.
So any little shakes or pops you give the lure make it seem as if a crab is dancing in and out of the grass.
In turn, you can dead-stick this lure and call the fish over.
Snakelock hooks are a terrific pairing with this lure because of the bullet head to move through grass and the wide-gap hook.
This is the best overall presentation for this lure.
If you want to slow things down a bit, Chinlock weighted hooks are another option.
With Chinlock hooks, you have a bit more control of the fall of the lure.
As we approach Fall, it is time to start thinking about bait transitions and changing diets.
Redfish like to dig around in the mud, especially in the upcoming colder months, for crustaceans and easy meals.
Be sure to have some Z-Man Kicker CrabZ with you this Fall and Winter!!
