The Ruckus is a slim style skipping popper designed for long casts and insane bites!
On a slower retrieve it responds well to jabs of the rod to get it popping and walking as it moves across the water.
As you retrieve faster it will get up and skip across the surface until it tumbles head first into the water which is the strike trigger that gets it inhaled!
The original concept back in 2019 for this lure was to create something that would cast further than anything else and create a Ruckus all the way back to your feet.
After a year or so of using the Ruckus ourselves, we decided to try removing the belly hook to see what would happen. We found that the lure cast further, skipped easier and more lifelike with the added benefit of better hookup rates. With a fast moving lure fish often hit the belly treble without getting hooked and after that it’s game over. With only one hook on the tail we’ve found that if the fish does miss, it won’t have felt the hook at all and will come back more fired up for the big bite that gets hooked!
All Black Ledge lures are hand crafted from specially selected timber and coated with a super thick epoxy resin shell. Because of this, no two black ledge lures will ever be 100% identical.
