The Muscle Back Finesse Craw works great when fishing for smallmouth bass. Rigged on the back of a jig or shakey head, you can fish this for smallmouth to provide a smaller presentation that your typical craw bait profiles. This bait also works well when flipped around heavy cover. Because of the smaller profile on this bait, it will come through cover well without getting hung up on your favorite Texas Rig setup. Match the weight of your jig or texas rig to the depth or amount of cover your fishing. Go up in weight and line size depending on the cover you’re fishing.
Reel: 2:1 ratio Spinning Reel
Rod: Medium Light or Medium action Spinning rod
Main Line: 10-20lb test braid
Leader Line: 6-12lb test fluorocarbon
This bait has a unique shape and profile which can give you an advantage when using a Ned Rig. Although it’s listed at only 3” in length, this bait has a fatter body which is great for targeting bigger bass, especially fish that are keying in on bigger forage. Perfect for imitating gobies and small baitfish along the bottom, this will be a player when you’re looking for that little bit bigger than average bite on a ned rig bait. Another unique characteristic is the bulbous tail. This bulb helps give the bait a bit more action than a traditional stick-style body on some ned rig baits.
