Chasebaits Ripple Cicada Lure
The ripple cicada doesn't create a scream the same way as its realistic relative does, but this lure screams at Australian bass! At first glance, you can see why an Australian bass would leave its snag of comfort to engulf this imitation from the water's surface. A compelling replica of a freshly hatched cicada and its soft body that imitates a similar sound as if a real one dropped into the water is too good for bass to refuse.
The ripple cicada's pliable wings pulsate side to side when pulled through the water, creating a realistic swimming action that drives the bass crazy. The added persuasive colour finish also entices fish to strike. If you're looking to target bass on top water, the ripple cicada is the way to go!
For those who love to fish and are seeking a new challenge, the Chasebaist Ripple Cicada is not just an option limited to Australian bass. It will be just as effective in catching freshwater and saltwater species such as bream, saratoga, jungle perch, and sooty grunter.
This pursuit-sized Ripple Cicada is the perfect size for an easy meal, and it weighs in at approximately 8 grams, so it's easy enough to cast on most light graphite rods rated anywhere from 1-5Kg.
