Karl's Amazing Baits The Hunch
The Hunch by Karl's Amazing Baits is a shallow water beast. Its small profile and erratic action trigger crushing reaction strikes. Throw it in open water, around docks, rocks, and other shallow water cover. Measuring at only 3 inches, this bait is perfect for generating strikes in shallow water. Bomb a cast and mix up retrieve cadences on the return. The more erratic the better, as you are imitating a fleeing/dying baitfish when you have The Hunch tied on. The rattling body is reinforced, and can stand up to a beating if you choose to leave it tied on all day. Slashing, darting, and dashing action come naturally to this bait, and so does catching big fish!

caught my PB on it!
great for shallow jerking, caught my PB on it! a 6.4 lb Largie. it was the white /chartreuse color. only bad thing is they don't come in multiple sizes. it's a little bit on the light side. but what can I say, it caught a 6.4 lb bass in February. :) :)
Colors look great, nice action, runs 2-3' on a medium fast retrieve, really happy with the baits, I got one of each color, all look and run good. Would buy some more in another size.
We pick three up on the sale and they quickly have become my new favorite lure.
The large mouth love the chartreuse caught one and then lost the lure.
Bought 3 of these during the promo special. Fished them same day they arrived. 3rd cast nailed a smallmouth! Bite has been tough during transition to fall pattern but this is kryptonite!
First time out - got hammered
Got hammered, first time I used it by a 24-30" Northern Pike. Unfortunately I was on a pier and finally had to cut the line as there was no way to get him onto the pier. He put up a great fight and was really hooked. So I am ordering another one...
Great jerk bait. Definitely catches fish. Caught a 2.3 lb small mouth on the second cast. I was only able to fish about an hour today but still caught 3 nice fish with the moonlight shad color. Thanks MTB!
Best lure ever
I loved this lure... for the day I had it. I got it in my mystery tackle box. I fished with it for just that one day and it worked amazing. Lots of action and caught a tonnnn of fish. But then I casted it into a rock and it shattered. Would definitely buy though. I will buy another
Geat lure until
This thing was like a fish magnet until the lip broke!! I would like to buy another but they are out of stock!!!
It destroys the smallies and I have caught 3 pound fallfish on this as well. Great bait with a ton of action.
best jerk bait money can buy
I love the small profile of this bait I used it in a pond with very skiddish fish 3rd cast caught one.
the best jerkbait ever
I got the bait in my mystery tackle box and it is one of the best jerkbaits on the market. when the bass in the winter will not commit to biting a full size jerkbait tie on this one with 10 pound line and you are going to catch fish.
First and last resort
This thing is great. This past December 3rd I had been out for 4-5 hours before deciding to toss this thing on as a last resort before throwing in the towel. I was at a big pond right at the top of the tail of fall gassing going into the winter phase. Right before heading home this thing found and dig into a 4.5lb Largemouth, saving the day and sending me home a happy man. I have the moonlight shad color. Comes with hardware ready to dig into lips and stay there.
Moonlight!!!.. So sad I lost it.. 5 casts .. 5 bass one night . Never had that happen with any other jerk bait!!!
The best jerkbait in the market
Ladies and gentleman, I have used every brand/company of jerkbaits and "The Hunch" by far has given me the best results. Not only have I caught massive largemouth bass, but trout and redfish also absolutely murder this bait. What I love about this bait is that not only can you jerk it but you can slowly reel it back towards you like you would a square bill or any sort of diving crankbait. This bait perfectly imitates the shad and other baitfish that fish love and that's what separates this bait from others. Lastly, the hooks are exotically sharp and I have yet to miss a fish. Catch Co's "The Hunch" is a dominant and unique way to power fish and should be in every anglers tackle box.
I was skeptical at first about this bait (I've never used a jerk bait before) but the first cast I made at my spot I brought in a whopping 5lb bass and various other little fish. It has made it's way to the top of my tackle box.
Got this in my september box. Had been reading good stuff on this particular jerkbait. Personally it has great color, good action, and perfect for shallow water. I’ve caught largemouth, smallmouth, coho smolts, kokanee, and rainbow trout on this lure. Just lost it today unfortnately, but that may have been from the bill cracking on it partially, along with a small crack in the body of the lure.
I loved this bait but only was able too fish it a couple times! Lip broke off while fishing in an open pond with no cover. Not nearly as strong as they make it sound!
was walleye fishing the upper Potomac river MD and had a juvenile musky eat this this beside my boat.
Lost the one and just had to buy another.
Love this jerkbait. I swapped out the hooks for some a little smaller. Now it suspends at just the right depth for my super shallow pond.
The swim on this hunch is pretty good
I hate it
Man I tell you what at first I thought this was going to be the best lure but when I tied it on and took a cast is to light I can’t throw it 20 feet
Favorite Jerkbait ever!
I got this in my mtb october box, and its color was amazing. i used it to catch pond largemouth, and smallmouth crush it in rivers. My bill broke off on a rock, but I don't think that is a product flaw, just bad handling. Overall though it is the best action and best colored jerkbait i have used
Hopefully just bad luck
I liked the look and action of this, however the product description boasts about how durable it is but the bill on mine broke off on the first day. I did catch a few smallmouth on it first though.
Quality and versatile
This bait is top quality 100%, combined with an amazing paint job and great texture on the baits body make it look super realistic and fish go crazy for it!! It can also be worked many of different ways which makes it a bait to always have.
I've had a ton of trout in these fresh stocked Colorado lakes go hard for this lil guy. Just added another to my next box.
Great for the river.
I used it today on my local river. First cast I caught a 2.5 pound Smallmouth. He crushed it. Great action and perfect for shallow water. Absolute must have in your crank baits
Great multi species bait!
I love this bait for late fall fishing! I have caught a few decent crappie on this bait, a couple 2-3 pound LMBs, and a big rainbow trout! I love this bait and I will most likely purchase more
First catch with this was a 6 inch crappie lol. Other than that, every LMB I've caught with this lure was 3+ lbs. Love this thing.
Caught a fish the first two times I used it within the first 5 casts but lost it when a big bass hit hard the third time I went to use it. I had to add another one onto my next MTB order! Love the small profile
Caught two 2 pounders then lost it. I added another one to my next box. And I'll probably be getting more in the future.
Pretty cool little bait, I like the small profile, caught a few nice spots on it last time I went out.
It caught me a 6 lber
Caught the largest large mouth of my life and then topped that one in the same day with this. Absolutely love it and will be ordering spares.
The hunch works.
Awesome lure it works with fast results. I pulled the HUNCH by CATCH CO. out of the pack the other day threw it a few times caught one and a 2 pounder later that da. In the new spot, about 10 cast in I get a bite set the hook an land a solid 5 pounder an got a few other smaller ones right afterwards. The bites were fast compared to what I'm use to using with other lures.
I used this in a canal close by and a peacock bass hammered it! Definitely will be useing this a lot more.
Was my favorite jerk bait. Fished it twice and it produced both times when my x-rap wasn't. Unfortunately a bad knot or a knock in my line made is break of instantly when a bass hit it...noooo! I need a new one asap
Used it for a little bit today. Spotted bass destroyed it!!!!
This bait draws attention
Awesome bait. Caught a chunky bass after a couple casts, was able to see the fish close in on it and he whammed it! Unfortunately i threw a bad cast and lost it right after that. : (
this bait is amazing it catches large and small mouth bass
