Cox Group is working on promoting Lucky Craft’s Gunfish. The Gunfish comes in a variety of colors and 3 different sizes. The time of year, time of day and type of lake are all contributing factors when deciding what color and size to use.
According to Cary Bever, June is a great month for fishing the Lucky Craft Gunfish on Lake Champlain. One of the most critical elements is the post-spawn pattern this time of year. Lake Champlain receives a series of bug hatches in June, which brings the smallmouth bass out of the shallow spawning flats and into deeper water. The fish suspend, which makes them susceptible to a topwater bait. And Bever believes there is none better this time of year than the Gunfish.
“If you are able to throw into a good bug hatch, you’ll have a great topwater bite,” Bever said. “Like a trout bite, the smallmouth get dialed-in to the topwater bite this time of year.”
“I really like MS Black and Laser Clear Ghost,” Bever said. “When it’s overcast, I use black because all the fish see is the silhouette. It’s a great ambiguous color. When it’s clear and sunny, I like Laser Clear Ghost because it also creates an ambiguous profile. The fish can’t actually see what it is, they just know something is there.”
