Best soft-plastic


I’ve long been a fan of hollow soft-plastic baits because the natural, squishy feel seems to attract and trigger more bites. So, I took notice when Livetarget’s realistic crayfish earned ICAST’s Best Freshwater Soft Lure honours. The Craw comes in three sizes, but for smallmouth, I especially like the smallest—and least intimidating—1½-inch, 3/8-ounce version. Bass are going to absolutely devour this lure, available in eight exquisite lifelike colours.
