The Jointed Claw is a hard bodied, jointed swimbait which displays a wide “S” action swimming motion. Gan Craft designed the Jointed Claw to target big bass providing a large profile capable of imitating only the largest forage species such as trout, shad and hitch. Combining the realistic appearance, large size and seductive swimming action, the 178 size delivers the ideal presentation for hunting down giant bass.
The Jointed Claw 178 displays a smooth, wide side to side swimming action with a slow retrieve – the bait makes its’ way through the water like the pied piper getting bass’s attention and eventually convincing them to strike. In clear water you can see shadows approaching and typically, without hesitation, engulfing the bait. While the steady, slow retrieve is perhaps the most widely used – this bait isn’t a one trick pony. Anglers can employ any number of retrieve speed and impart twitches to achieve a more erratic display.
The Gan Craft Jointed Claw 178 can do it all. Equally impressive to the baits action is the detailing that goes into the Jointed Claw’s appearance. 3D eyes allow the prey to stare right in the face of it’s predator. The layers of color on the baits body are amazing – the closer you look the more detailing you find. The open mouth is also neat feature that a lot of the wide glide swimbaits have adopted and it’s been very well received among big bait fishermen.
