The Chasebaits Flick Prawns are hand sculptured off a real prawn and are incredibly realistic. They are made from ultra durable and flexible 10X material, with realistic finishes and ultra lifelike movements. These can be used in snags, slow rolls or twitched throughout drains and in open water.
I bought it because I was seeing mantis shrimp in the stomachs of fish that I had been filleting for the past few years and wanted to try a realistic shrimp lure...this lure looks like a large shrimp, not a mantis shrimp, but that didn't seem to matter to the bass as I caught fish within the first couple of casts with it.
I fish this lure in a shallow rocky bay area that has a moderate current. I use it as an alternative to a bucktail or tsunami sand eel soft plastic. I really like that I can fish it very, and I mean very, very slow and still the shrimp looks alive...I can basically drift this lure in the current and just follow the rod tip to keep the slack out of my line and fish will hit it. If there current is light, I can use a very slow retrieve and just glide the shrimp above the bottom and it catches fish.
I really want to try this lure once the fluke hit the open beaches as this shrimp will do very well in light surf through the wash and in the beach lip. I am also sure that this lure would work for weakfish, sea trout, reds, tarpon, jacks, pompano, snook, grouper, snapper and pretty much anything else that eats a shrimp.
4/5 for the simple fact that I was not super impressed with the hook it came with...the hook was sharp out of the package, but did not holds its point for very long, I find that I am constantly sharpening the hook on this lure and started to notice rust on the hook points after 2 weeks of use.
