Description: A darting flutter action on the fall and unmatched vibration patterns when retrieved make this lure a fish-catcher. Its bug-like appearance and concave blade produce vibration patterns no other lure can duplicate to attract fish sonically and visually. The cicada comes in 18 different color patterns and 6 sizes.
Sizes: 1/16 oz, 1/8 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/8 oz, 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz
Colors: 18 color patterns available but the cicada is easily customizeable with reflective tape.
How I Used: I fished the reef runner cicada on an ultra-light Berkley Cherrywood fishing rod and a Quantum Optix 30 reel spooled with 6lb flourocarbon P-line . A steady retrieve landed me over 60 white bass 5 smallmouth bass and one catfish in a few hours.
- Extremely versatile bait that catches anything swimming. Also is very easy to use.
- Because of the flat sides of the cicada, when the paint or reflective tape rubs off, its pretty easy to customize the color pattern with any reflective tape you like.
- The cicada can be used in multiple ways from straight retrieves to jigging.
- Jigging the cicada is a good cold water tactic as well as a good tactic for catching walleye and lake trout.
Cons: This bait should be attached to the line using a swivel and clasp if you tie it directly to the line after a while the bait tends to cut the line slowly making it more apt to break off on any structure.
