Lucky Craft has been making top-of-the-line fishing lures for years. Recently, they received some added publicity when their Luck Craft Pointer 78 minnow was used to haul in a 9 pound monster bass at Lake Michigans annual fishing tournament. Today, we will take a closer look at this lure and see what all the hype is about.
The 78 Series
The 78 series differs from other Lucky Craft baits based on one thing. It’s ability to mimic the movement of a dying minnow in the water. It acts like a soft plastic, but is a traditional crank bait lure.
How To Use:
It’s best used to fish bass out of fresh water ponds and lakes. The key is to get it in front of a hungry fish, and the lure will do the rest. This bait has a very low center of gravity, giving the user the ability to dive the lure down deep. It wobbles and vibrates when retrieving motion stops giving it the “eat me” signal to any fish watching.
When Lucky Craft introduced the Pointer series rip-baits, they set the standard by which all other rip-baits are measured. Special internal brass weights create a low center of gravity causing the Pointer to wobble and vibrate when the retrieve is stopped. The Pointer is designed to suspend 4-5 feet deep, and the same weights that create a low center of gravity also emit a fish calling vibration. Not only do the Lucky Craft Pointers have an incredible suspending action, they also have a retrieve action that can’t be found in other rip-baits. When ripped or twitched, the pointer has a “Walk the Dog” underwater action that is unique to this bait. From the 78 to the 128, the Pointer series has the sizes, colors and unique fish catching action that only the Pointer can deliver. Try one and you will see why pros have been catching and winning with this lure since its inception. Source
