Heddon's Crazy Crawler is designed with two metal "wings" that flap freely as they skip and jump across the water's surface, creating a motion that is...well, describable as some pretty crazy crawling.  Reminiscent of an injured bird to larger fish, the Crazy Crawler is a full meal that few species would dare pass up.

The lure can be simply cast and reeled back in -- with great results.  Advanced techniques, however, are likely to offer fantastic results.  Performing a popping technique as you reel in the Crazy Crawler is a great way to further entice fish to make their move, and letting the lure sit still for a couple seconds periodically as you reel it in may seal the deal.

The Heddon Crazy Crawler is a great lure for reeling in bass, but will entice almost any species known to go after topwater lures.  Pike, crappie, and large perch are also particularly known for falling victim to the Crazy Crawler's powerful charm.
