Each Dead Horse Baits Lone Star Craw is hand made by Mike McQuillen. These 5 1/2" long craws feature silicone skirt legs, large claws, protruding eyes, and 4 great colors.
Mike recommends a few different ways to rig them. An Owner 8/0 weighted beast hook works well for weedless presentations with the tie point of the hook in the tail. He recommends removing some of the plastic in the tail and then screwing it the center pin into the thick part of the tail.
A jig head can also be use, we suggest a Warbait Slayer Head 1/2oz or 3/4oz can be used. The hook will be exposed but the jig head features a weed guard to help keep it from snagging.
According to Mike, Neko rigging is very effective because it puts the craw in the defensive position and creates a ton of movement. Removing a portion of the tail plastic and inserting a nail or neko weight is necessary for this technique. He says to use a 4/0 to 5/0 hook and a 3/8oz to 3/4oz weight.
It also works great on a 1/2oz to 1oz swinging football head.
Foam sticks from a craft store can be inserted into the claws to make them float. Check out some rigging videos.
