Among the many new Delalande 2023 products, a rather atypical lure is appearing in the catalog: the Craw Jig! This ready-to-fish mounted version of the new Craw offers the angler an easy to use and formidable rig on many species!
Product presentation :
As its name suggests, the Craw Jig is a small rubber jig on which a Delalande Craw is mounted. Its head is in Zamak, painted black to avoid reflections and make the rig more natural! The silicone skirt has a size perfectly adapted to the Craw and gives it a very important volume. This thin skirt is always in motion, which triggers many attacks, including when the Craw Jig is placed on the bottom. The large model measures 14cm and the hoof head weighs 10gr while the Mini version measures 8cm with a football head of 5gr. With these 2 sizes and the 6 different colors, there is necessarily a Craw jig adapted to the situation, the place, and the species of the day!
Target species :
Although rubber jigs are mainly intended for Black Bass fishing, it is possible to hit many species with this type of lure! Indeed, the large model proves to be formidable on pike and zander when they feed on crayfish! More and more rivers, lakes and ponds are populated by crayfish, providing a significant food source for predators!
As for the small model, it is very effective on Bass, but also on perch, zander and even large chub! As for salt water, it is also possible to fish with the mini craw jig, especially from the shore, to target all fish that feed on crabs and shrimps, such as seabass, pollock, wrasse and more generally all rock fish!
Animations and swimming action :
On the animation side, the Craw jig can be used mainly in two ways: to scrape at the bottom, or to make it “fall” in front of obstacles!
Indeed, whether it is a steep bank, a submerged tree, a bridge pier or any other structure that can accommodate a predator, it is interesting to launch the Craw jig right in front and drop vertically while remaining very vigilant on the keys on the descent! Perches and black bass are particularly reactive to this type of prey that falls in front of them, this animation allows you to prospect quickly and find active fish!
Another possible activity, scratch fishing! What could be more natural than a crayfish moving slowly backwards and close to the bottom? This animation consists of throwing the lure, letting it hit the bottom, and making it take off about fifteen centimeters before resting it for a few seconds, then taking it off again and so on! During breaks, the crayfish will descend gently until it lands on the substrate and remains fishing throughout this period, then attracting predators who most often grab hold of it when it starts up again! This animation is formidable in most environments, and this, whatever the period or the targeted species, it is quite simply the most relevant animation when one seeks to imitate a crayfish to target a predator that feed it!
