The PowerTeam Lures Diesel Craw is a 4-inch craw imitation that has some advanced design features. The claws float in a defensive position, there are grooves on the bottom of the bait that trap air and release tiny bubbles and there is a skirt molded into the bait. This is all packed into a bait with a slim profile that is packed full of intense garlic scent.

Construction 5/5

The Diesel Craw has a strong garlic scent built into the bait. The material is very durable but at the same time maintains a life like action. The claws of the bait are buoyant and cause the claws to stand up in a defensive pose. It has a very complex construction for a soft plastic bait and Power Team Lures have done a great job on paying attention to detail.

Appearance 5/5

The baits look simply amazing. The colors are a bass anglers dream. In the water the smallest shake of the rod tip make this bait do things you won't believe. The bait looks identical to a real crawfish in a defensive position before it is attacked by a bass. The bait looks insane in a good way!

Usage/Effectiveness 5/5

Like the Texas Rig Jig, this bait also has a tapered body covered by a skirt that makes it extremely deadly for punching through cover. The buoyant claws make this bait a killer for when fish want something dead-sticked or shook in one spot. Unfortunately, I got my hands on this bait late into fall and only got to use it on a few outings. In this short period my clients caught many fish on this bait in cold water situations. I can't wait to see what the future holds for this bait. It is another must have for any weekend angler or serious bass pro. It is a bass addicts dream!

Innovation 5/5

The Diesel Craw is versatile and original. It first glance it might seem similar to other craw baits, but the molded skirt, floating claws and grooves on the bottom give this bait a unique set of features.

Price 4.5/5

The thought and complexity that went into this soft plastic bait makes it well worth the price.


I think PowerTeam Lures have outdone themselves again and smashed a grand slam with this one! This is definitely one of my top three favorite baits from 2010.
