Anyone remember the Crazy Crawler Lure..
It had two wings that folded out.one on each side.kinda shaped like a Jitter Bug without the blade across the face.
I had a Red And White one.
Took a lot of bass after dark with it in the late 70s early 80s.
Lost it to a bass on Gouldsboro lake.Never replaced it.Never seen them around after that.

Here are a few prop baits i use on the river for smallies.have had great sucsess with them.
Top 2 are Cotton Cordel Devil Horese.
Bottom 2 are Heddon Dying Flutters.
Great right before dark and after.throw to shore and work back to the boat.
If shore fishing,work up an down the shore.
Great lures in my eyes.

"Anyone remember the Crazy Crawler Lure.''

Chez I have one, bought it a few years ago.  I was camping near the river down past Selinsgrove and had a big bass break off my biggest black jitterbug.  I hit the only local place nearby and they had no jitterbugs of any size but they did have this Crazy Crawler, I think it was made by Heddon.  I tried it and it got me a couple bass, it creates some real top water disturbance.  I would think on a night when the bass were extremely aggressive it would work well.   

I really don't give it much use, I've replenished my stock of jitterbugs and they are my main topwater choice for spinning.  Just to clarify I was camping on a private lake near the river, wasn't fishing the river on this trip.  Now that you've brought this up I might have to give it a shot on the river some night, the big cats or toothies might have a go at it.
