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
Pro Tips:Use the Googan Squad Klutch to create reaction strikes by reeling over grass beds and ripping the bait out of them. Also very effective across points, flats, and anywhere else fish are actively feeding on baitfish.
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 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.
The Googan Squad designed a variety of mouthwatering colors, creating an arsenal of cranks for all water types and conditions. All Googan Squad Crankbaits come with Mustad Triple Grip Hooks and their diving depth painted on the bottom of the bait.
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
Pro Tips: Throw the Googan Banger in places where other cranks get snagged! Instead of fishing a creature bait or jig on a laydown, you can confidently throw this bait along the limbs and trigger bass to strike as it deflects off the cover.
