The Z-Man CrusteaZ is a miniature, soft plastic crustacean imitation perfectly suited for any application where fresh- or saltwater gamefish are feeding on small crabs, crayfish, sand fleas, ghost shrimp, or other crustaceans. Poured using Z-Man's ElaZtech plastic technology, the CrusteaZ delivers incredibly durability remaining intact through numerous fish catches. This attribute allows you to keep fishing while the bite is hot and not have to constantly re-rig if fish miss the bait. Furthermore, the action of this little artificial crustacean will remain unhindered by fish strikes - you'll keep all the appendages, claws and more so that the swimming motion is the same from the first to last fish.
The uniquely shaped body of the Z-Man CrusteaZ can be rigged in a variety of manners, and twin u-tail claws produce attention-getting action on both fast and slow retrieves. We find this to be an excellent little plastic for small jig heads when fishing inshore saltwater applications after species such as redfish, snapper and others. We always like dabbing artificial baits with some scent attractant and this is especially true for saltwater applications. Try the Pro-Cure Scent Gels.

Plastic fishing baits have been around since you first went digging around in your granddadís tackle box. You probably learned early on that soft plastic baits caught fish, but that you needed to buy a lot of them because they tore up easily when the fish were biting. Z-Manís proprietary ElaZtechģ material is the toughest soft plastic bait you will find on the market todayóperiod. It stands up to the most aggressive fresh- and saltwater game fish, and remains fishable after several catches. ElaZtech is a remarkable material that is soft and pliable, and as much as 10X Tougher than other traditional soft plastic baits. ElaZtech resists nicks, cuts, and tears better than traditional soft plastic baits. No matter the quarry, ElaZtech soft fishing baits can handle it. These plastic fishing baits can withstand getting hammered time after time by aggressive largemouths, toothy barracudas, and anything else you can get to bite.
A plastic fishing bait is no good if fish canít see it! Unlike other plastic fishing baits, ElaZtech is a naturally buoyant material that floats off the bottom and creates a more visible target. A more visible target means more strikes and more fish-catching opportunities. With traditional plastic fishing baits, this means going through a lot of soft plastics. ElaZtech baits, however, maintain their fishability despite all the abuse, and also boasts one of the highest fish-per-bait ratings in the industry. To top it off, ElaZtech, unlike most other soft fishing baits, is non-toxic and contains no PVC, Plastisol or Phthalates.
