Default Reef Runner Cicada, one of my new favorites.

Hi all,

Just a fun review of the Reef Runner Cicada lures. https://www.cabelas.com/product/Reef...ada/739634.uts .

I picked up a 1/4 oz one of these in Silver a few months ago and have been loving it! I have caught a few white bass, and lots of Rainbow trout on it. My favorite thing about the lure is the way it fishes. It has such a unique action and feel that you immediately know when you are dragging weeds, or something else is off. It works well on a strait retrieve, stop and go, and I have even had some luck vertical jigging them. One thing is for this lure you should use a snap swivel.

The only con I have with this lure is my hook-up ratio. I have been getting a ton of strikes, but the damn fish seem to get off the hook more than when they hit other metal I chuck at them.

Still I think it is a fun lure, and I will be trying some this Ice season as well.

Tight lines!

Blades are almost all I throw anymore for anything. braid or Nano on a medium rod really helps hook up ratio.

The cicadia comes with double hooks-change them out for split rings and trebles and you will hook more fish-you will also snag more often.

you may want to go a little heavier to get down were some other fish hang out, that is if you dont want to catch trout
