PowerTeam Lures Craw D'oeuvre

The PowerTeam Lures Craw D'oeuvre is a small craw imitation with subtle action that is intended for finessing stubborn bass into biting. It can be used on a shakey head, Texas rigged, or as a trailer on a jig.

Construction 4/5

The Craw D'oeuvre is made from durable soft plastic that is impregnated with a strong garlic scent that doesn't fade. The legs get ripped very easily due to their thinness, but they do provide an enticing action.

Appearance 5/5

The colors that are available are a selection of great color for this type of bait. The color that I tested was Green Pumpkin/Scupper Swirl, and it is a very accurate craw imitation. The selection also includes the amazing Green Pumpkin Light Blue Swirl that I tested with the Texas-Rig Jig. The colors were definitely selected by hardcore bass anglers!

Usage/Effectiveness 4.5/5

Its small compact body provides a tight package that is perfect for punching through heavy cover. This bait can be used as a pitching and flipping bait, but is also awesome when used on a shaky head or standard jig head on spinning gear with light line. The two larger legs move around enticingly with subtle movements of your rod tip.

If you make the right cast, chances are you will get bit! The small size and subtle action means that even finicky bass are willing to take this bite sized snack.

Innovation 2/5

While this bait is made well and does catch fish, there are many similar craw/creature type bait on the market. There isn't much that's new or innovative about this bait.

Price 4.5/5

This is a good price for these baits. You get 9 in a pack, and they are durable enough to last for a few fish.


The Craw D'oeuvre is a simple yet effective bait that is available in a good selection of colors. While there are many similar baits on the market to choose from, this one does catch fish and you can't argue with that!
