Lucky Craft Gunfish 115

The Lucky Craft Gunfish 115 is a topwater walking/popping hybrid lure that mimics a wide range of forage fish that swim atop the surface of the water. The Gunfish 115 is part of Lucky Craft's extensive series of next generation topwater baits. It features a slim, tapered body design and a uniquely cup-shaped mouth. The configuration of the mouth makes the bait splash and pop in such a way that separates it from other walking baits. The Gunfish 115 glides across the water's surface with a tight "walk the dog" action similar to the Sammy series. The distinct difference with the Gunfish 115 is the incredible fluid motion of the bait upon retrieval. This topwater will allow you to catch bass even under highly pressured situations. The resin/tungsten composite weighting system of the Gunfish will allow you to cast it a mile, and approach these fish from vantage points inaccessible with conventional topwaters. This will effectively catch those finicky bass without alerting them to your location. The Gunfish 115 is 4.5" in length and weighs 3/5oz.

According to Casey Ashley, the Gunfish is everything an angler could want in a topwater lure. “The Gunfish is the Sammy and a couple other topwater baits all wrapped into one,” Ashley said. “It doesn’t have a deep sound and it’s not sporadic. It’s noisier than a regular Sammy. It chugs along on the top and spits a little, too, because of the cupped face. I love this bait.” Late April and early May are prime times for the Gunfish in North Carolina and South Carolina, and according to Ashley, it resembles a blue back herring, the main forage on Clarks Hill Reservoir in Georgia. “My prime day, no matter what lake I’m on, for the Gunfish is a bright sunny day,” Ashley said. “Clouds and sun don’t really affect the Gunfish bite. It is good to have clouds because the bass can’t see you, but that’s why I prefer a 15-20 MPH wind. Then the fish can’t see me at all, but they can definitely see the lure.” Ashley likes a fast reel and a short rod when fishing the Gunfish. “I like to work it fast, so I use a 6-foot, 6-inch rod so I don’t work myself to death,” Ashley explained. “If you have a bigger rod, you’re going to wear yourself out. You want the rod tip to do all the work. And I always use braided line. With monofilament, you have a 50 percent chance of hooking the fish because of the stretch. You have no leverage. With braid, your odds are much better."

5 of 5 Great blend November 27, 2016
Reviewer: Joshua parris from San Andreas, CA United States  
This bait is super easy to walk but throws a bit more water than your typical walking bait. Highly recommended!

5 of 5 Catches quality fish September 21, 2014
Reviewer: MICHAEL LIM from SAN MATEO, CA United States  
Good quality finish, split-rings and hooks.  We throw near a lot of rip rap and accuracy isn't always perfect.  Stands up to less than perfect casts.  See video here:

5 of 5 great lure, excellent service February 23, 2012
Reviewer: William Carroll from Hohenwald, TN United States  
This is the number 1 topwater, walk the dog bait that I own. The gunfish has a spitting walking action that drives bass crazy. I own every color of the gunfish 115 made. They will catch fish when nothing else will. Their action is a combination popper and walker. When you get it right it will dance and walk with a cadence that the bass can't keep away from. If you don't own one you are really missing out on the best topwater action you will ever have. One pointer that I can give you is to upgrade your hooks to a size 2 instead of the 4's that come on the ljure. I use the Owner St 36 and I never lose a fish. I hope this helps you and I know you will thank me. Gret fishing and buy all your lures at Outdoor Proshop they are the best.
