The unique advantages of the Treble Hook Model CRANKA Crab over and above other common lure designs lies is in its ‘Patent Pending’ unique floating claw/ treble hook design. The claws of the CRANKA crab lure are made from highly resilient, buoyant foam material which is precision cut and then handtied to the highest quality treble hooks available so as to form realistic crab claws… this unique buoyant foam claw design causes the treble hooks to float up above the crab’s body when the lure is in water… This floating / raised claw design accurately mimics the natural claw up stance of a real defensive crab. With the claws / hooks raised up off the bottom and floating in the natural defensive crab position… this lure has the unique ability to crawl along the seabed in a snag resistant manner while looking exactly like a real crab crawling over the seabed!
Other unique features of this Crab lure design include… realistic tough and durable soft plastic legs… tungsten base plate / belly weight that ensures that your crab lure always lands upright and ensures durability while enticingly crawling over rubble, rocks and reef… a through wire design that keeps you securely connected direct to the fish... highest quality razor sharp and strong Japanese treble hooks!
