This is a great top water lure. It is virtually weed free. It can be pulled right into weed beds and it skims over the top. Attracts big strikes from bass and blue gill. Bass have actually jumped completely out of the water to get at it. I have used these for over 10 summers at a kids camp in N. California. It is the most popular top water lure due to its ease of use and ease of casting. The biggest drawback is it is a little tricky to set the hook and you have many missed strikes and fish that come off. That is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. But I still prefer it over all of my topwater lures.
