I have a few Lucky Crafts and they are good lures, but I don't use them much because I hate getting wet.

See, if I lose one on a snag, I HAVE to go in after it, at those prices...

They are great baits. They are the first bait that I have found that have the profile of the baitfish I need [b]AND[b] they swim. I have fished a lot of baits with that profile that have terrible action. I am a troller most of the time. I am super anal about the action of a bait. I will not bash any brands, but some of the most popular are not good swimmers. They have great finishes, but the action twists rather than kicks. This has been something I have done extensive testing on and have proven results. That being said, is any bait worth 15-20 bucks....if you have the dough, then it sure, if not, there are others that have great finishes ans swim great.

Ironicaly, I have had a hard time finding some of the better lures I use. Many get discontinued or change the finish for the worse. My favorite finish on my favorite lure is no longer available and they cost about 25 bucks each when they come on ebay. For this reason, I have had to go to alternatives. The alternative these last couple years has been the lucky crafts. I try to buy one or two at a time over a long period of time. Also, I carry two different lure retreivers. Many of my lures are not replacable or if they are they are whore house pricing. The lure retreivers have paid for themselves 10 times over. I only lost about 3 lures last year. One almost made me cry.

When Lucky Craft first came out I said I would never buy something that expensive. Well now and a $1000 later I must admit, they work! The pointers, staceys, CB4, and sammy's are my go to baits. They run true and the finish excellent.

Money well spent.

Just think, if you bought 1 or 2 now and then, you would have a good supply of Lucky's in a year. And also, if you fish out of a boat, get a good lure retriever! You will pay for it the first time you use it.

I really like them . but have had some problems with the finish wearing off, might be the toothy walleyes. very hard to handle losing one. I probably own 12 different LC baits

The Pointers are great baits! Them and X-Raps are about the only Jerkbaits I use anymore.
