Measuring in at just 4-inches in length, the Black Dog Shellcracker G2 is a smaller version of the popular billed-ShellCracker. Delivering the same great action and durable, single-jointed construction, the SmallCracker is perfect for times when bass are keying in on a smaller presentation. Like all Black Dog Baits, the G2 Shellcracker features a realistic, custom-quality paint job with a durable gloss-coat finish. The lexan bill, protruding downward from the front of the bait, also creates an exaggerated swimming action, and the 3D eyes and lexan tail provide added authenticity. Wake it, dead-stick it, twitch it or swim it down to the 3-4 foot range, the Black Dog Shell Cracker G2 is the bite size form of a proven design.
Comments: absolutely AMAZING lure. got it when they had a bluegill color. the action is ridiculously life-like when slow rolled on the surface. you can reel so slow. it is definitely worth the $20. in my opinion, it could be $30. hooks are sharp too.

Comments: Just received the bluegill and redear sunfish today. Immediately went to a small local pond to try them out and caught three largemouth in less than an hour of fishing with less than ideal conditions for topwater. The quality of these lures is top notch in my opinion and they feel like they'll be very durable. The action on them is fantastic and they're very easy to fish. I'll be doing a lot more fishing with these.

Comments: Really good summer bait I recommend it to anyone who wants to start throwing swimbaits. Stock hooks are super sharp and theres no need to change any of the hardware.

Comments: I never write reviews, but this is the best bait for my by far. I randomly picked it up and first cast as soon as it landed it was money from there. Great bait!
From: Gene: CA 7/11/14
Comments: This bait is amazing. From the paint to the action of the bait. I fish small lakes here that are over fished and when everyone else was struggling this morning, i was not. The waking action is awesome and if fish hit this bait they are not coming off. Super sticky hooks. Don't just get this bait, get two of these damn things.

Comments: Outstanding. Deflects off cover like a champ. Works it's way through water shield with little difficulty. My father fished koppers wakebait same time I used this and the g2 was better in every category. Caught 3 bass by putting rod tip in water and smashing the g2 into logs. The bass wanted it dead asap. Can't wait to use it again!

Comments: Great bait. Don't think it it is too big. I've caught fish from 1/2 lb up to 5 lbers. Don't hesitate when it comes to purchasing this bait!
From: Tyler: MS 3/17/14
Comments: This bait is awesome!!!! I caught 2 fish in the first 3 cast!!! The next day I took it out at night and landed my personal best at 6lbs 3oz!!! These numbers are rare in my part of the country!!! Great bait!!
From: DeShawn: NM
Comments: WOW! That is all I can say after using this lure. It has truly blown my mind how effective this is. It is as simple as casting. set your reel and set your hook. Any doubts you have about this you can put to rest. Make the purchase and enjoy. This is without a doubt my favorite lure I own. It is literally like fishing with dynamite!

Comments: awesome bait, throw it on my diesel and catch hogs
From: John: danville ca
Comments: Used it today for the first time and caught about 20 fish. The fish were all over it and it held up great. Still looks like new. If your worried about the size don't because I caught fish today that weighed less than 1lb on it. I will be buying more.
From: Randy: Tampa, FL
Comments: This thing is great in NC just slow roll it over grass or wood and hold on... It has great detail the only downside is that it helicopters really bad when casting but it still casts a mile
From: Greg: NC
Comments: Really sick bait. I throw it in GA for 3-8 pound fish. Get a lot of them over grassbeds, and I don't even need my XH to throw it. A H rod, 30-50lb braid and go to town, hit the banks, hit the wood, hit the grass. Killer combo and a great tourney bait.
Comments: Awesome bait. Black Dog has great customer service. My G2 split in the forhead, which messed with the action of the lure, and Black Dog replaced it with no charge! Cant beat that.
From: Jay: CA
Comments: I love this bait! Not as much as the wooden ones though. Ive thrown this thing out and just let it sit there and got hammered! Not even a twitch! Tons of action on the slowest retrieve. Ive had the best results dead sticking, wait til your ADD kicks in, twitch, deadstick.
From: Mike: Huntington Beach, CA
Comments: awesome awesome bait...... i started with one and now i have 4 of them all in different colors, the three on here and a custom painted one from lakeXtackle. i honestly want to buy 10 of them that way i will still have them after they arent being made anymore.
From: JimBo: Toledo Bend, TX/LA
Comments: just got this bait and it looks awesome. great finish on it and looks like it will have great action. cant wait to try out it this summer
From: Matt: IL
Comments: crank them as slow as you can. amazing action! Crushes the gnar big girls!
From: Mike: SoCal
Comments: good bait, fun to fish first fish was just over 5lbs
From: Colby: Oregon
Comments: Don't just crank it! some twitches and direction changes drive'em crazy
From: Matthew: OC, CA
Comments: Excellent looking bait. The finish is very nice and typical Black Dog Quality you'd expect to find on one of their wooden lunker punker baits. Very realistic colors, eyes and details. The action and options for fishing the bait round out the package. Can't go wrong adding this one to your tackle box!
From: Tacklejunkie: Southern California
Comments: My favorite 2 foot and less crack bait and my favorite wake/splash bait. Great color. Way worth the money. mine has half a tail and still works awesome
Comments: Very realistic, great action, love the weight, can cast it a mile, great paint job. Hard to see it but the bluegill has some glitter on the top and the tail. Awesome bait for post spawn bass or lakes where the main forage is bluegill. Hope to catch a muskie on it.
From: Robert: Davenport, IA
Comments: Good lil swimbait for pond fishing in the morning or at dusk ,i will sometimes add some weight strips to the nose and make it a bed bait. but great lil' bait for the price. its a fat lil' chunker bait.
From: Sam: Orland Park, IL
Comments: Great little lure for the price. Bass cant stand to let it slip by.
From: Brent: Lockport, IL
Comments:By far the best small wake bait out there.
