Gan Craft Jointed Claw 178

The Jointed Claw is a hard bodied, jointed swimbait which displays a wide "S" action swimming motion. Gan Craft designed the Jointed Claw to target big bass providing a large profile capable of imitating only the largest forage species such as trout, shad and hitch. Combining the realistic appearance, large size and seductive swimming action, the 178 size delivers the ideal presentation for hunting down giant bass. The Jointed Claw 178 displays a smooth, wide side to side swimming action with a slow retrieve - the bait makes its' way through the water like the pied piper getting bass's attention and eventually convincing them to strike. In clear water you can see shadows approaching and typically, without hesitation, engulfing the bait. While the steady, slow retrieve is perhaps the most widely used - this bait isn't a one trick pony. Anglers can employ any number of retrieve speed and impart twitches to achieve a more erratic display. The Gan Craft Jointed Claw 178 can do it all.

Equally impressive to the baits action is the detailing that goes into the Jointed Claw's appearance. 3D eyes allow the prey to stare right in the face of it's predator. The layers of color on the baits body are amazing - the closer you look the more detailing you find. The open mouth is also neat feature that a lot of the wide glide swimbaits have adopted and it's been very well received among big bait fishermen.

The Gan Craft Jointed Claw 178 measures 7" in length and weighs 2oz. We offer the Jointed Claw 178 in four colors - Blue Back Herring, Clear Lake Hitch, Kokanee and Yellow Perch of the Slow Sinking version.



Jointed Claw 178 Action

JOINTED CLAW 178 has a wide and slow S-swimming action same as JOINTED CLAW 230 and it is used as a soft bait although the body size is a magnum class. Various techniques such as twitch & jerk and bottom stay can be applied also.

Gan Craft Jointed Claw 178

The most basic approach of using this lure is STRAIGHT RETRIEVE. The wide S-swimming and the width changes of S-swimming by the retrieve speed give the bass to bite the lure.

The lure acts like escaping bait fish irregularly by jerk with the rod action during the slow retrieve and leads the bite of the bass tracking the lure. Also, STOP & GO repeatedly at retrieve with the normal speed is effective.

Gan Craft Jointed Claw Swimbait

Keeping the lure stay at the bottom and putting the jerk when it attracts the bass lead the bite of the bass.

Sweet Swimming April 19, 2014
Reviewer: Larry Alderson from Tyler, TX  
Super action. Tried it at some local lakes with mixed success, but it sure did look good. My best day made it all worth it. Kinda looks like a Tilapia.

Reviewer: Jason Jones from santa rosa, CA United States  
Great bait for Clearlake and other lakes for big bass this time of year. Everybody should have one of these maybe two in the tackle box.

Jury Still Out March 19, 2014
Reviewer: Ross England from Kelseyville, CA United States  
Great looking paint job, good components.  Swims a little differently from its big brother the Magnum and the S Waver.  Only had it for a week on the water.  It is a little heavier than the S Waver so it swims a little deeper.  While I have only got to fish one day while guiding it has produced 8 bites, 6 fish in the 5 to 7 pound range.
