Crustaceans like crabs and prawns form a major part of the diet of both inshore and offshore species. Productive on a massive range of fish from just below the surface to 50 meters depth, river anglers will find them ideal for hunting Barra and Mulloway, while reef fishers will find them to be a meal for Snapper, Flathead, Mulloway and many other species.
Extremely durable and long lasting. Swimerz Soft Crabs have a body width of 30mm with an extended profile of 135mm. (Measurements along retrieve line). They are fitted with a laterally aligned a size 5/0 black nickel coated double hook and weighing 35grams.
The action of Swimerz Soft Crabs is unrivalled. On the drop, the legs and claws vibrate just like a real crab, swimming and crawling in a realistic manner.
Crabs don’t move that fast at the best of times, and in their natural environment they usually dawdle along the bottom. Even under attack, crabs tend to assume a defensive position, rearing their claws upwards and slowly back or sidestep away from danger. To emulate this action, simply let the current take care of bringing the crab to life, use a slow roll, or jig. You need to let the fish swallow the lure a little before setting the hook.
