The virtual kind of big fish crankbaits! Super tough. Super durable. When Joe Bucher first introduced this lure in the mid 1980's, its innovative design rewrote the book on big game fish crankbaits. Before that time, most musky crankbaits were made of wood bodies. While wood makes wonderful lures, the toothy jaws of big muskies, pike and other big game fish destroyed the paint schemes and punctured the body integrity. Joe Bucher changed that forever with his introduction of the original DepthRaider featuring a high impact plastic design that was virtually indestructible. This is the lure that made tough plastic materials acceptable and mainstream in the musky world.
