Lucky Craft Gunfish 95

The Lucky Craft Gunfish 95 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 95 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 95 glides across the water's surface with a tight "walk the dog" action similar to the Sammy series. The distinct difference with the Gunfish 95 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 95 is 4" in length and weighs 3/8oz.

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."
