Lucky Craft Real Bluegill
Originally a Japan only release, the Lucky Craft Real Bluegill offers exceptional realism in both action and appearance. Measuring 5 7/8" in length, the Real Bluegill perfectly matches the profile of big predators favorite meal - bite sized panfish such as bluegill, crappie and perch. Lucky Craft utilized a three-piece hinged design relying upon precise weighting to create an "S" motion swimming action free of any diving lips or paddletail. The result is about the most realistic bluegill swimbait ever created and one that can be fished in a variety of ways to match the mood of the bass that day.
Upon first glance at the Lucky Craft Real Bluegill, anglers will notice the incredible level of detail presented by the baits' finish. Lucky Craft built their baits using models of the real deal including small aspects such as the unique coloring displayed by different types of bluegill and panfish. For example, the pumpkin seed colors are decorated with a small red marking by the gill plates and those subtle blue streaks extending from the head. Furthermore, these swimbaits feature anatomically correct fins, mouths and scales. As you review the color options you can see many of the baits possess a more opaque design that captures sunlight and makes the lures come alive underwater. Constructed from a hard plastic with a soft, but durable tail the Lucky Craft Real Bluegill is built to withstand strikes from all types of predatory species such as bass, stripers and pike.
The Real Bluegill can be fished in any number of ways. Many anglers like the "S" motion style swimbait when fishing around structure where big fish may be hanging out. As the bait is retrieved through the prime area, one technique is to impart a quick twitch of the rod's tip or sudden increase in reeling speed to present a directional change. It's the unpredictability of this action that is more realistic to the predator species as nothing in nature is strictly uniform - fish are always reacting to their environment and never have a simple, constant swimming motion. Other applications include a sub-surface waking retrieve, that we can say with confidence, definitely works. It is very effective when bluegill are spawning - big bass can't resist the easy meal they provide and the bluegill become prime targets.
