This new SKT isn’t just a size upgrade, but it’s a completely new bait. Serious fisherman will need both in their tackle box because they stand out in very different conditions. The SKT DR is faster, can cover a lot more water and still have the great deflection capabilities of the original mini versions. The original SKT Mini DR are great summertime baits when fishing after the spawn. However, Lucky Craft did not have a cold-water version of the SKT … until now. Lucky Craft needed a bigger profile bait for those cold-water crankbait fish. The new SKT MR are great crankbaits for cold water and muddy conditions. The SKT DR does not have rattles. Lucky Craft used an internal weighting system on these crankbaits, and they have great balance. They have already been compared to wooden or balsa baits, which are normally very expensive, and it’s hard to find two that will run the same out of the package. The SKT DR have the same action and wobble as a balsa bait, but they are a lot more reliable, consistent and durable. With a longer lip, reaching depths between 8 and 10 feet, the SKT DR also runs great in cold-water conditions. Making long casts to fish stumps and wood is key, and this bait allows an angler to cover a lot of water quickly. It has the same features as the MR but runs a bit deeper.
