War Eagle Front Runner

The War Eagle Front Runner provides another perspective to all topwater baits. Tie the floating War Eagle Front Runner 8 to 12 inches in front of a popper or spook type bait. This double bait combo moves in tandem when twitched and provides multiple offerings. It is common to hook multiple fish, especially during a feeding frenzy and schooling situation.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Excellent for runner in front of a white rubber grub for white bass. Often catch multiples & the bigger fish will be on the front runner.

From: Steve: Jefferson, TX 2/6/16

Comments: there's no reason this bait shouldn't be working for you. Yes it can be a pain when trying to store if on a rod, but during the various times of the year when fish are schooling I will always have one tied on in front of a spook or sammy. It's fun to hook up on a small fish and then have a 6 lber nail the other bait. A lot of times I'll have a fish hit the front runner and not the bait behind it. I throw mine on a 7' MH rod and usually 15 or 20 lb mono.

Comments: I have had great success using these in front of a Chug Bug or super spook jr. I have had days when the bass would only hit the front runner and not the main bait. I find that it works well they are keying in on very small bait fish.

Comments: Awesome addition for chasing after Fall schooling fish.  I catch doubles all the time using this in front a LC Gunfish or Spook Jr. As with all baits, it has a time and a place.  You just have to figure out that part of the puzzle for yourself.

From: David: KY

Comments: I put it in front of a Spook. The Spook dances left and the Front Runner dances right, or vice-versa. Plenty of action. It is a pain to cast though, so I generally don't want to deal with it.
