The Googan Squad Klutch lipless crankbait is designed for a realistic and tight wobble to mimic swimming baitfish and fleeing crawfish. Fish the Googan Squad Klutch all year long but this bait will really crush in the Spring and Fall when bass are putting on the feedbag. In the spring, tie on Sriracha Craw Klutch to mimic the look of crawfish which bass are typically dialed in on. In the fall a Sexy Shad patterned Klutch will be the deal for fish feeding on schools of baitfish.
The entire Googan Squad designed each of the mouth-watering colors and the crew over at the Catch Co. moved forward with execution. Collectively, we’ve created a series of crankbaits that will stand out from the pack.
Gear Recommendations: Googan Squad Fluorocarbon 10-17lb Medium to medium-heavy power casting rod with moderate action 6.3:1 - 7.3:1 gear ratio casting reel

The Googan Squad Zinger is a double-bladed spinnerbait designed to bump, bang, and zing off cover and grass. The Zinger is designed to be fished around docks, stumps, and brush while also streamlining through the veggies with ease. Each Zinger features a strong wire framework, stout hook, and a flashy Colorado and willow blade.
The Googan Squad Zinger has a hand-tied skirt fastened around a sticky sharp Mustad hook. To help prevent line slippage, the Zinger also features a pre-rigged rubber knot stopper to keep your line from sneaking down the wire of the bait.
Pro Tip:Bump your Zinger against hard cover like docks, brush, laydowns, and trees to help create reaction strikes from fish holding tight to the cover. This technique helps create a reaction strike from fish who may likely not have bitten otherwise. Look for areas with shallow grass, cover, or feeding fish and work your Zinger using an erratic retrieve, slowing down in cool water while speeding up in warmer conditions.

All googan baits are infused with Slaunch Sauce and come aligned in clam packs giving you top notch action as soon as it hits the water.
The Googan Squad Clickbait is a hybrid vibrating jig with the flash of a bladed jig. The swimming action of a scrounger, and a unique sound and vibration that fish have never felt. listen for the distinctive Clickbait Clack when the lure's blade bangs off the leading metal beads and wire.

Designed by the GOOGAN SQUAD, that's right Jon B, Justin and the rest of the gang put their heads together and put a Googan spin on the classic soft plastic stickbait. Pond, river, creek, and lake bass will all fall victim to the strike causing action and scrumptious scent the Googan Baits Lunker Log puts off. Rig this bait weightless 'wacky style' in skinny water, Texas style around grass or cover, and thread it on the back of a shaky head to pick apart off shore structure.
The Googan Squad Scout is a hard-bodied, suspending jerkbait that looks and swims like a lively baitfish. This jerkbait is the deal whenever bass are feeding on minnows or shad. With each rip of the rod, the Scout will slash and dance across the middle of the water column, looking like a wounded or fleeing baitfish. Each Scout is built with a lifelike integrated lateral line that adds realism to this bait.
What’s inside?—Every Scout has a set of internal rattles that are stashed in a chamber positioned around the Scout’s belly. The internal rattles do 3 things; keep the Scout suspended, improve casting distance, and provide a fish calling rattle. To finish things off, we’ve added a set of Googan approved, black nickel hooks that are so sharp it’s almost dangerous.
Pro Tip: Use the Scout when you are looking to imitate a wounded baitfish, ideally in water temperatures of 45-65 degrees. Fish the Scout with your rod tip down and a bit of slack in the line. Give the bait short pops with a cadence of rip, rip, pause. The colder the water, the longer the pause between rips.
The Googan Squad Thicc jig is a flipping jig designed for use in thicker cover than other jigs can handle. The head is pointed, to go in and out of cover easier. Plus, the weed guard and hook are both beefed up for fewer snags and better hookups. Tie on the Thicc Jig whenever targeting thick shoreline laydowns or punching through emergent vegetation. Built around a heavy-duty hook finished off with a hand-tied skirt, the Googan Squad Thicc Jig is built for the mondos.
Pro Tips:Use the Thicc jig when you are fishing heavy cover, setting strong hooksets, or fishing around extra big bass. Once you detect a bite make sure to give a HEAVY hookset in order to drive this hook home. You should also really lock in your drag to help prevent the line from slipping when you set the hook.
The Googan Squad Banger is the dirtiest of square bills and designed to be fished around mondo hangouts like rock, wood, docks, and bridge pilings. The square bill design allows for easy deflection when banged against cover. This will help you prevent snagging while creating a unique swimming action which oftentimes helps trigger strikes.

Gear Recommendations: Googan Squad Fluorocarbon 10-15lb Medium power casting rod with a moderate action 6.4:1 - 7.3:1 gear ratio casting reel
