First time use
Great action but the size I believe is little small all the fish was caught was small but consistent
It was good good good things with good price it was good just let how I catch em all fishing said so and also I hope that doesn't give away for every hundred people race it 5 stars
It was a really good place to be so I Like It Hot home in the videos of Catch Em All fishing he sponsored you and all but the one thing I like about you got many things to do you can use like like different thing all you can do is go pay by for really cheap price and I hope you can really do a giveaway of 100 tackle
One of few baits that work in all my ponds...
Not the best crank but not the worst
Awesome lure. Love the way it feels casting and when it’s in the water. Managed to catch a fish on the first. I bought one in every color.
We caught tons of bass and pike with this lure! Panfish chased this lure up to the boat. We even landed a musky with this lure! 10/10 would recommend.
I received the ghost gill colored Lil runt and man does it produce! I’ve caught several bass and a few bowfin. Almost anything will eat the bait!
Will catch everything!
This morning in about 2 hours of fishing I caught 4 lmb’s and 3 channel cats! The action on these things is insane, and have ordered one of every color. This is a great little crank that bounce off of rock and tree’s, and when it does, pay attention, that when the strike occurs.
Super Smallie Slayer
The runt came in one of my MTBs in the ghost gill pattern. So, this past week, I decided to try it in one of Kentucky's premier smallmouth streams. Wow! I was completely taken aback on how much success I had. It didn't matter where I threw this bait the smallies (and some largies and big longear sunfish) inhaled this on almost every cast. My only complaint would be that 100+ fish later the finish on the lure started to wear off - if that's even something to complain about after so much success.
I'll definitely be purchasing more!
Thrown this with a steady retrieve, a slow roll, and even as a small jerkbait. Success on all fronts. Always love when I see people I'm fishing with scrambling to find something in their box that looks similar!
I bought the Runt in Ghost Minnow and took it out today for the first time. I was excited to use this one since I've been having better success with downsized offerings and trebles on the hookup; the fish just aren't inhaling it at my local pond but they're interested enough to side-swipe and this one snags them up perfectly. Fished this one for about 30 minutes, landed two, had a few short strikes. One of them was my PB which, so far, is not quite a whopper. :) 17.5" and 3lbs.
Multi Species Specialist
Had Smallies, Crappie, and Walleye all explode on this bait the first week I took it out of the box, a must have!
This bait is amazing, I've caught so many bass on it. I need to get a lot more more, because I had a pike inhale the whole bait with no liter, so it bite my line in half.
Very Good bait
Great lure for the early season, caught a few bass in a short lapse of time with it
Effective lure but...
Hooks are not the best, a northern pike nailed this lure trolling behind a kayak, 2 of the points on the back treble snapped off in his mouth. Will change them out with something a bit stronger and keep using
You need this in your tackle box
Couldn’t fish to night on anything for two hours throw this out and first cast I caught my pb bass. 5lber absolutely inhaled this bait. It really tears it up out there
This bait is awesome!
I was a bit skeptical when I first took it out of the box but 25 bass later I've decided it's a keeper!
Nailed a 23" Large Mouth first cast out of the box, wish I had a scale with me. Bass never stopped hitting. Great Lure
Wish we could add pictures
I fell in love with this lure the first time i used it. Just a handful of casts after tying it on i caught a 2 pounder on it and have since caught multiple largies, a hybrid bass, and even a longnose gar on this little crankbait. Unfortunately i lost mine today when a 4-5 pounder got tangled up in some brush a couple feet off the bank and broke me off. Already placed an order for 2 more in the ghost gill pattern.
When I got it in my subscription box I was kind of doubtful about it but just the other day I went fishing and didn't get a hit on any of my normal goto baits I use, so I decided to give it a try and in the first cast I pulled a 5 pounder out and 5 more 2 and 3 pounders out right after I definitely am impressed with it and how good it looks swimming through the water.
Excellent multi-species bait!
Couldnt be happier with this little crankbait! Caught me many central Texas fish over the past month! Several largemouth and spotted bass, a white bass, and even a gar! Will definitely order more of these in the future.
Great lure out the box. Just caught a few on it yesterday and 1 today out of totally different bodies of water and ecosystems.
Awesome little lure
Went fishing today 3/30/18 with my son first 4 casts cought four 3 pound bass but should have done a retie lost lure on fifths cast went back home and ordered 2 one for me and 2 for my son we love this little lure awesome.
Caught two large mouth bass the first day out with it! Love the way it swims and has a really good weight to it!! Going to buy two more!
This lure is awesome for catching good size bass for all times during the year. It has very great action during the retrieve, and bass just cant help but slam it when you give it a little pause in your retrieve.
Decided to throw this in a 3 acre pond yesterday evening as I got it in my MTB this month. Good grief....28 largemouth in about 2 hours. I have the bluegill color...worked it like a jerk bait along the bank and some weed lines and they KILLED this thing. Craziest spell of fishing maybe ever for me. Catches ranged from 1-3.5lbs...I even hooked into a TOAD but he ended up spitting it. My only complaint is that they don't make a bigger size. I'd love to see what a larger version would catch at the lake. Bravo, Catch Co.
The runt has great action at various retrieval speeds.
Love this lure but the front hooked snagged the line allllllll the time.
I use it a lot here at our local lake and I have been catching a lot of bass. I have the bluegill color which is a common bait fish where I'm from.
I fish ponds, going to be a good addition to my shallow crankbaits
It has wobbly action like a wiggle wart and a mouse lure combined. I got the ghost gill color. Like this lure.
Very small for what I use on bass
Good product enjoy fishing it
I like this product due to its small size and the fact that it sinks slowly when not retrieving it
Fantastic choice for farm ponds on the edge of vegetation. The big bass come out of hiding for this lure!
This is great for creeks or pods. Perfect color too.
Looks like it will have a ton of action that will drive bass crazy
I haven’t had a chance to use this yet. Lakes are still frozen up here. But I think this is going to catch a lot of fish for me this spring.
Top of the line Lure
I am new to the MTB and have only received 3 boxes so far but this lure is by far the best lure I have received. Went to this lure on a windy day when my to go lure was not working. This lure caught fish right away and just kept catching bass. Liked this lure so much I went ahead and bought to more with different colors.
Been catching some nice smallmouth with this lure! I love it!
My favorite in the box
Great bait caught a few bass with it but the front broke! I didn't hit against anything didn't hit anything in the water just pitch & a normal retrieve & the front broke!! I also had a spinner bait once in one of the boxes & the skirt just feel of & the rubber band was all cracked up on it!! Didn't even get to use that one & it looked really scrumptious for the bass to eat!! I would really love these boxes of the lures where a little better quality & would last a little longer!!
First cast on a grassy point pulled it through some grass and pulled into a 4.8 it works well up tight with the bank but not a fan in deeper water
Excellent caught a few on it yesterday
The bill is fragile but it works great
Need to get more and great for docks and shallow stuff
I wasn’t sure what to think of this crank when I first saw it. It has a wide wobble and the feather adds a nice touch. They say you can use this as a wake bait but I have not been able to get it to the top as it’s lretty heavy. Also hooks aren’t very sticky and feel cheap.
This is a good lure.
I just got his lure and it works really good.You can use it like a wakebait or a crankbait .I like to toss it over a bed with the bluegill color i caught some fish on it the first time i used it.
Works better than I initially thought, caught both Crappie and Largemouth on this little guy.
Great little crank
I opened this lure today and caught 7 bass off of it first time out. The feather on the back treble looks great in the water. Has great action and you can control the depth by lowering the rod or raising the rod tip up. Got some weight to it too I can throw it super far on my medium action rig. I also like the size of the bait not too big and not too small. I caught only largemouth on it today but I could see catching some nice crappie and white bass on it also. I will definitely be stocking up on them.
Great unique lure
My Dad got this in his MTB this month and we used it at then end of our fishing trip for about the last 15 minutes and we both wished we had used it longer. Great color, unique shallow suspension motion, tail motion was fast and looked like a rat. The lure came to a complete stop when retrieve stopped, which triggered a couple strikes. Just ordered three more colors to try out for the summer. The heavy weight made it easy to toss far unlike most shallow suspension lures.
Caught a 7 pounder on this.
