The Crippled Herring is the most versatile lure you'll ever use. It is natural both in appearance and action and can be used worldwide, every day of the year, for both fresh and salt water fishing.
The Crippled Herring is constructed to take full advantage of the natural predatorial instinct common to all gamefish. Every movement of any type of distressed baitfish (stunned, struggling or dying) has been assimilated into this lure.
A Crippled Herring will arouse fish and provoke strikes when conventional lures or natural bait will not, like, for instance, on a dead calm, bright sunny day. It is a sight-sound lure, which can be cast vertically jigged through ice or open water, mooched or trolled.
This lure is great for Striped Bass, Bluefish, False Albacore, Bonito, and Bluefin Tuna. The larger sizes are retrofit with strong, single Gamakatsu Hooks for more hook holding power against strikes initiated by big Striped Bass and Bluefin Tuna.
