Gan Craft Model



Gan Craft Jointed Claw 230 Magnum

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 230 size delivers the ideal presentation for hunting down giant bass. The Jointed Claw 230 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 230 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 230 Magnum measures a full 9" in length and weighs 4oz. We offer the Jointed Claw in three colors, a California Matte Trout (USA Limited) color in the Slow Sinking and Floating versions and Clear Lake Hitch & Stocker Trout color available only in the Slow Sink model.

Jointed Claw 230 Action

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

Gan Craft Jointed Claw 230

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.

Deps or Gan Craft December 10, 2013
Reviewer: Anthony Casillas from Chula Vista, CA  
I have them both and like them both. I understand why the deps fetches $250 on eBay, but Gan Craft is really just as good.

I think this color might be my favorite too. I caught a few over five the past couple weekends hiking around lake Morena in San Diego area.
