The 2.8" Beasty Bug Jr. is the perfect Finesse Ned Craw, to catch even the most finicky bass. In addition, the Beasty Bug Jr.'s claws float, so when used on a jig or neko rig they will maintain the defensive position, eliciting the strike.
We use a medium grade plastisol to give it toughness when being skipped or placed through heavy cover, dragged along the bottom, or thrashed around in the mouth of a fish. This craw also has enough suppleness to give it the action needed to entice the bass into biting.
Rigging: The ideal rig we've found for these is Ned or Neko. On a Neko rig take a small 3/32oz tungston weight, insert into the tail, an o-ring around the body, and a 1/0 neko hook, thrown on 6lb florocarbon line. On a Ned rig simply thread the bait onto the Ned head with the claws facing away from the jig head. Our customers have also seen success using them as a jig trailer.
Additional Rigging Options:
Ned Rig Shroomz Head
Ned Rig Football Head
Swim Jig Trailer
Durability: Medium, 3-5 fish/bait
Bait Design: The body shape has 2 flanged claws, leading into a rounded ribbed body as it moves into the tail section which is solid.
Scent: Like all our baits they are heavily scented with our Phat Juice which is a Craw/Leech/Shad combination.
Floating: Yes, Claws
