Lucky Craft Gunfish
The Lucky Craft Gunfish is a topwater bait that combines a "walk the dog" action with the splashing ability of a popper. The slim tapered body design delivers quiet landings and a unique action. The Lucky Craft Gunfish has a "walk the dog" action similiar to the Sammy, but uniquely different. The tapered body provides a tight walk that glides across the water, while the Sammy has a more sporadic action. When stopped, this bait can be twitched and popped to create a splashing, darting action. The resin/tungsten weighting system allows for long, accurate casts. Try this lure when conditions are prime for topwater but the fish are being stubborn. The Lucky Craft Gunfish will catch fish in those high pressure situations.

Comments: I dusted this thing off a few weeks back to target schooling lrgmth on my home lake in Knxvl just to try something different. This lure is great! The multiple actions of this lure does provoke strikes when other lures won't produce. You can walk it, pop it/stop it, twitch it; it will get you strikes. The ghost minnow works as well as & other color; the action is the crucial component of this bait

Comments: This bait is certainly the most successfull bait ever made ! Whatever the fish you target, whatever the waters you fish, YOU'LL CATCH LOTS OF BIG ONES! Somedays this bait will outfish everything that exists worldwide !! If I only had about 30 bucks to spend on lures, I would buy a gunfish95 and a pointer100...

Comments: Today was one of those days you never forget. Today is the second time I have used the Gunfish 135 lure and all I can say is thank you Lucky Craft. I caught over 20 striped bass from 12" up to 6 lbs plus in California Delta. Ended the day with 32 total got the other fish on LC jerkbaits and spook. The Gunfish has a ton of teeth marks AKA battle scars but still going strong.

Comments: This is the best topwater bait on the market. Fish can't stand not to hit it !!! You can use it with a little wind or when it's slick water, doesn't matter-- Me and my son caught a 4 pound bass on these every trip to Cedar Creek Lake this year. Buy it, you will not be disappointed

Comments: I am a firm believer in the Gunfish. It outfishes any TW bait I have ever used. Many complain about the finish, my finish started coming off after a few fish as well. To fix this issue, I got in my daughters fingernail polish bag and borrowed her nail hardener, painted the entire bait. Problem fixed! A year and a half later, still no more finish has come off. Cheap and easy fix. I know you shouldn't have to do that with a $16.00 lure but it is what it is. Regardless, IT CATCHES FISH!!!!

Comments: This is the perfect bait for moody postspawn bass when a Sammy or Spook is too large and too loud. Just has the perfect size and action to trigger pressured fish. The spotted bass here in North Georgia absolutely love the 95!

Comments: Its always interesting to here different views and opinions about higher priced lures. I have yet to purchase a hard body lure that doesnt get thrashed after consistant fish catches. To me that is proof enough that these products are worth every penny. If you lure isnt thrashed it hasnt been catching fish, i would rather be rippin on some lips that looking at perfect lures that are still in the pachages.

Comments: Picked up a shell white one. Finish is completely worn off and hook rash like no other. Bought an new one and it DOESN'T even come close to getting bit as the old worn out one. Just cause the finish is beat up doesn't make a difference. Stop crying about the finish. If it is too much for you find something else.

Comments: Best walk the dog lure on the market, consistantly catches fish when others won't. I like to use it when the waters choppy slow retrieve or fast retrieve it catches them all!! Wish TW would carry the 75 size as they are harder to find for finesse applications but if your contemplating about buying just buy one, you won't regret it!!

Comments: I use MS Black 115 size at nights , love it. Casts a mile, very good walking splashing action.Caught biggest one last summer 11.4 pounder. Not bad at all for $ 16 lure.
From: Steve: Studio City, CA
Comments: THIS LURE IS AWESOME!!! This is honestly my go to bait. I use a shad color and a minnow color. The action is phenomenal. I can work long wide walks, short erratic action. It spits too while working erraticly. My only beef is that TW needs to carry the smaller version 85 like another large competior already does.

Comments: Top water has not been great this year, so I have not put this to the test too much. However I was hauling in a 3-3.5 brownie and at the boat he decided to jump and got off.. After a few casts I checked my line and the hook was bent out, something that should not happen with a $16.00 bait. I think I probably boated 6-8 fish before this happened, spending $16 on a bait and having to worry about changing the hooks is just too deep for me to invest in.
Comments: If they could make this in a black hitch that would be awesome!!

Comments: This is a awesome topwater bait. It's has outfished my zora spooks time and time again. I only use my zora spook in case bass come up schooling while i got my gunfish already out. The price is high but it's worth the money
From: Gary: Lake Murray, SC
Comments: Man this is an awesome topwater bait. On the second cast, i caught a 4.8 pound large mouth. I was impressed on this baits first day out. Caught several over 3 pounds, including a nice six pounder that just hammered it. I mean man they smash this thing. I would highly recommend this bait, great job lucky craft.

Comments: Using only the 115 model exclusively for 3-bar Peacocks and Giant snakehead. Best pencil popper ever produce.

Comments: I love this topwater! Number 1 topwater lure for sure! It's a all in one!
From: K.M.: OK
Comments: My No. 1 favorite topwater lure i have a whole tray of almost every color lucky craft makes in every size i love this bait by far the best walk the dog bait on the market
From: Patrick: G.B. NC
Comments: Great postspawn bait, the cupped mouth seems to represent a bluegill feeding more than a sammy would. Largemouth killer.
Comments: I wanted to follow up with another tip that I think will help you put more fish in the boat. I changed the #4 hooks to #2 hooks and took the feathered treble off the back. I have yet to lose a fish with the bigger hooks. The gunfish is amazing and any thing that I can do to improve its fish catching ability I will give it a try. I have to say that the gunfish is becoming my #1 topwater bait. I still love the sammy when the water is smooth but the gunfish is the best there is.

Comments: this is one good lure! just like all the lucky craft bait's, it's all they say it is. when skeet reese and kelly jordan among other top pro's fish this bait for the BIG BUCK"S, you should know it's something special. it will out fish most lure's of the same type including the cordell pencil popper's, which say's something about its effectiveness.

Comments: I love this bait!!!! It's so good!! I've caught count less fish with it. One of my biggest is of this bait it was a 6 pounder.
