Shallow Diver Crank Spin Series
Flub Dub Crankbait the "NEW" crankbait incorporates the attractive crank spin flash of a spinnerbait added to the enticing wobble of a plug. This crank spinner combo bait includes great colors such as Shiner, Sucker, Bss, Golden Shiner, Darter Pike and more. The Flub Dub plug is the most smashing innovation in crank baits to hit the fishing market in 30 years. Another Gapen original created in 2001 to enhance the angler's take on all species. Tested and proven for over 10 years since '02-'03 by leading tournament anglers, and the Gapen test team.The Flub Dub looks great but it's power comes from the nearly indestructible construction. Toothy fish won't wreck your favorite bait - they will smash it, gobble it, inhale it and attempt to murder it. The Flub Dub is created with through-wire construction which means power on the hook-set that won't ever give out. Wires connect through the entire crank bait body from front eye to back!
The body of the Flub Dub itself is also armored against the teeth of gamefish. Sharp teeth can kill ordinary balsa or crack plastic baits. The Flub Dub is constructed of the toughest hardcore foam that we could find. This makes the teeth of attacking fish slide quickly to the hook for supreme hook positioning. Instead of the teeth grabbing into a balsa bait - your bait is protected to last you many trips, trolls, casts and hook sets. Get some new sharp hooks- replace those every once in a while because your Flub Dub will last and last through many fish attacks.
Flub Dub crankbait carves a huge path of disruption in the water column and combine unprecedented flash, vibration and waggle in one package. The bait plows disruption in the water column and summons the instincts of fish to grab a meal - your Flub Dub crankbait. Cast one and you will feel it on your rod tip and feel the disruptive calling power that is Flub Dub.
Fish are attracted to the wounded sound - vibrations and water disturbances of their prey - other fish and minnows. The waffling spinner thrashing back and forth just beneath the wobbler of the crankbait throws a huge sound path attracting instinctive strikes. Both feeding and territorial strikes are triggered by the Flub Dub Crankbaits - something you will notice is that fish attack it. Feel the pull, tug and wobble from your rod tip as the Flub Dub Crankbait wobbles, trashes and calls upon hungry fish to pursue and strike.
For those who worry that the single treble at this lure's tail end isn't enough to hold fish, you needn't worry. Field tests proved that all species (bass, walleye, pike, muskie, stripers, trout, crappie, whitefish, as well as dozens of saltwater species) are readily caught on Gapen's Flub Dub.

Working the Flub Dub
The Flub Dub can be worked in several methods. A straight cast and retrieve, or trolling in the normal manner works extremely well. However, it's the special methods that attract the hard-to-catch fish.
By casting to your targeted area, allow the Flub Dub to settle on surface, then twitch every five seconds or so to entice a strike. The spinner flashing below the bait is the attractant. By using such a surface presentation, you represent the action of a dying fish.
By stopping your retrieve every 10 feet or so, you can allow the Flub Dub to rise towards the surface, activating the spinner to flutter as it rises (Shallow Floating Flub Dubs). Thus, a tantalizing enticement to the following fish represents the actions of a wounded baitfish.
NOTE: Because of the lure's forward-mounted spinner (which replaces the front treble), the bait is 85% snag free when running over bottom rock and timber.
