Lucky Craft pros Brent Ehrler demonstrate how to fish with the Pointer 95 jerk bait. After much research, Lucky Craft determined many anglers prefer quiet jerkbaits, and the Pointer 95 Silent was born. Lucky Craft has taken a great bait and made it even better. This jerkbait, just a little smaller than the Pointer 100, will reach depths of about 5 to 6 feet and is completely silent; a key element for many jerkbait fishing enthusiasts and tournament anglers.
When fishing in cold or clear water, fish often refuse baits with rattling sounds. These baits become very artificial in clear water. When a fish can see the bait from a mile away, the rattle isn’t needed. And in cold water, anglers have repetitively seen fish follow the bait but never take it. Rattles can hurt anglers in these specific situations, so the Pointer 95 Silent is sure to have instant fans.
To make this bait completely silent, Lucky Craft also removed the weight transfer system from the body of the lure. To compensate for the change, Lucky Craft changed the angle of the lip to make it more aerodynamic. This allows for almost the same exact casting ability as the original Pointers. The lip angle also allows for a tighter wobble, while still retaining the erratic action, making the bait appear more natural in clear water conditions. Wide wobbles are good 90 percent of the time, but in clear water conditions and when fish are finicky, a tighter wobble adds a lot to a presentation.
Lastly, the Pointer 95 Silent will also reach deeper depths faster than its rattling counterparts. This is also a great advantage in clear water because the bait reaches the strike zones faster. It dives slightly deeper than the Pointer 100, and can be worked with the same speed in depths around 4 1/2 to 5 feet.
