Description

It would be an understatement to say that Lee Lures Custom Baits took the muskie world by storm when debuting its first crankbait. The Pelagic has become one of the most sought after, and finest made crankbaits available. Hand made and carved from Western Red Cedar, with laser cut aluminum lips, and wrapped in finishes never before seen in muskie baits the Pelagic has found it's way into the mouths of many giant fish already.

The name Pelagic refers to the lures ability to "roam" open water. It's side to side "wander" acts as if it's deflecting off of structure without actually making contact making it absolutely deadly on triggering giant fish. But certainly feel free to bounce off of structure as well. The action of this and any trolling bait for that manner can vary greatly by rod action, braid or mono, and whether you use it on a down rod or planer board. My personal preference for trolling this bait is the Custom X 8' Heavy Trolling rod. Also, make sure to take care of your Pelagic investments by keeping them stored in relatively cool spots out of the sun. You may also wish to keep them with hooks rubber banded together or even removed to prevent additional wear.
