Zipper Craw
Zipper Craw 4.5" (6 ct)

The 4.5" Zipper Craw at imitates a medium sized crayfish. There is no salt in this bait which allows the claws to float upward, similar to the position a crawdad takes when being threatened by a predator. 

The soft ribbed body traps air and slowly releases air bubbles which fish feel as vibrations on their lateral line.

The ribs give it a feel and texture that bass love and they just don’t want to let go of it when they get it in their mouths. Relative to other soft plastic craw designs, the lack of plastic in the head and center of the Zipper Craw becomes an advantage when setting the hook. There is very little plastic for the hook to penetrate.

From use as a jig trailer to duty as a flipping or pitching bait to just being fished like a Texas rigged worm, the Zipper Craw offers the angler much more versatility than other crawdad imitations.

    Team James has great success fishing the Black Blue Zipper Craw on the hot summer Oklahoma nights. We catch good quality fish. We mostly fish rocky shore lines with shrubs and brush. This is an excellent product for triggering that hard to get reaction on the hot summer nights of Oklahoma. We Texas rig the Zipper Craw on a 3 OT hook with a 3/8 oz Tungsten weight. Give this product a try, I promise you will not be disappointed.

    June Bug Zipper Craws

    Posted by Stacy James on 27th May 2017

    I have had great success fishing this June Bug Craw Texas rigged. We have incredible rocky shorelines covered with fallen wood. I love to flip or pitch these near some wood and slowly walk this craw back to me. As soon as I feel a tug or see my line start to go I set the hook and the fight is on.

    This craw is amazing in clear water! If I had to pick a favorite all time bait (Well actually it would be hard ) but this is my go time bait mid morning and afternoon in t he summer months here in Oklahoma.

    Looks so real!

    Posted by Tucker Johnston on 15th Jun 2016

    This bait in natural color looks so real you may second guess yourself! I have found this to be awesome along weed lines mixed with a rock bottom, pairing them on a jig and flipping brush or just Texas rigging is a great way to catch quantity and quality. The claws rise to the top putting it in a fighting stance catching the eye of big fish.

    looks good

    Posted by David Cron on 26th Feb 2015

    I can't give it a 5 yet cause I haven't fished them. but as far as looks, feel and price I give it a 4. I love ringed baits. you don't see many ringed craws so i'mready to give them a try.

    I love this Craw!

    Posted by Joe Minor on 16th Jun 2014

    I always have two colors of the craw on my boat, and rigged on rods all the time. If you rig it like a flipping set up, the craw really stands up, these are also my favorite as a trailer for my jig!!1 I am not telling you my favorite colors though, you will have to find that on your own! (I have to keep some secrets!)

    Zipper Craw

    Posted by Trent Ramey on 14th May 2014

    The Zipper Craw is a versatile bait that will catch big bass! My favorite technique for rigging this bait is the Texas Rig. I use a 4/0 EWG hook to make sure I have proper clearance for clean hookups. When the bass are wanting a bulkier presentation, I use the Zipper Craw as a trailer on my flipping and football jigs. When it comes to color selection, I recommend “Black Blue Flake” for heavily stained water and “Green Pumpkin, Watermelon, or Watermelon Red” for clear or stained water. I also like to dip the tips of the pinchers in chartreuse dye (Other colors depending on water clarity). This is a great way to “match the hatch” on a specific lake or river. Using this bait on a Carolina Rig and Swing Jig will also put bass in the boat!

    What a Bass loves

    Posted by Stacy James, Broken Arrow Oklahoma on 2nd May 2014

    Zipper Craws are what Bass love. Bass can not resist the natural presentation of the Zipper Craw. The hardest part for me is trying to decide which color I want to use. Point being I have had fantastic results with all of them. I highly recommend giving these a try, you will not be disappointed!
