The “CRANKA CRAB” Truly an awesome lure

The CRANKA Crab is an original and unique Crab design that has been more than 10 years in development. This lure was designed specifically for bream but as anglers are quickly finding out it is deadly on a wide range of different estuarine species. This lure features realistic floating foam claws that are attached to the treble hooks to make the lure come to life in the water.

The foam claws float up above the crabs head in the water waving around just like a real “defensive” crab that is trying to defend itself from predators that are trying to eat it. These floating claws not only make the crab look extremely real in the water, but they also place the hooks into the perfect position for a positive hook up when a fish eats the lure… these floating claws also makes the lure extremely “snag resistant” as the hooks stay up off the bottom during the retrieve!
