    It's a Lucky Craft Wander 80, you gotta get em on eBay because they're a Japanese thing. It's a sinking stick bait, more or less. When it sinks, it has weights that make it wobble from side to side. You can slow retrieve and it swims like a jig, or you can make it subsurface walk the dog. It's a really fun lure and it casts like a bullet. So far this lure has caught bonito, spotties, stripers, and a barracuda.

    Not in San Diego, btw. I gave one to my cousin who lives in Central California last year, and he's been fishing it recently and he's probably landed 15 stripers on it within the last couple weeks.

    K-Bo Smack See? I told you I'd start sharing more info :)

    Did it originally come with treble hooks? I was also wondering if there is an advantage between using single hooks vs trebles. I feel like you're less likely to tear into a fish's belly with single hooks lol. Just my guess.

    Yeah, and the trebles may as well have been made out of aluminum foil they were so weak, lol. I was fishing that lure straight out of the package a couple weeks ago and I got a big bite, hooks were bent out immediately. As for the advantages, I hate trebles. They just gravitate towards my fingers and they're a pain in the *** to unhook. I much prefer having a strong single.

    Also, I forgot to add corvina on to the list of species it's caught.

    Nice!! I've got a couple LC110s in mackerel pattern. I think the only thing I've caught on it was a jack smelt .
    I was out in the lagoon this morning and hooked up on a beast with the old cherry berry. Whatever it was still has it. 26lb hyper snap came unbuttoned.

    Don’t use that snap swivel. It is weak. Try the quick snap swivel from the photos. I haven’t lost any lures with that type of swivel yet.

    I use power clips, whenever I’m using topwater or shallow diving hard baits.

    Great. Another lure I don’t knew but will surely buy. Time to bust out the credit card. It is a good looking lure.

    Good looking lure. I looked around a bit and have only seen them in 3/8 size. I'd like to see LC make one a little larger and 5/8 to 3/4 weight.

    Keith.. is that Cherry Berry monofilament you have there, to match the Cherry Berry LC ? ( or is that the Cajun Red mono.. ).

    You'll want the Wander 95 then, it's 3/4 oz. Here's the 95 vs 80 size comparison.

    Kast King in Rebel Red. Is great in the surf, not the best for dragging across rocks.

    I prefer Isorline XXX for the rocks.

    Thanks bud,,,,,I think the larger lure would be a real good call on the bonito off the rocks. The corvina ought to eat it, the barries also.

    You can buy them for $2 online. Mine came with surprisingly strong trebles, though I also like to swap them for singles. Killer for calicos when the current pushes the kelp down. Sinking action lets you work the bait just above the stringers.

    Awesome! Thanks for the tip man. Much cheaper than LCs.

    Ya, I started buying cheap Chinese stuff and found they work great. Sometimes you have to swap hooks or split rings, but I've caught yellowtail, yellowfin and skipjack on <$1 lures with stock hooks. A lot of the lures are 70-90 cents if purchased in lots. I feel much more comfortable throwing a $1 lure into heavy cover compared to a $20 LC.
