Bobby Garland Crappie Baits' Lights Out Slab Slay'R

Bobby Garland Crappie Baits' Lights Out Slab Slay'R



For several years, some Midwest finesse anglers have discovered that Bobby Garland Crappie Baits' three-inch Slab Slay'R rigged on a 1/16-ounce Gopher Tackle Mushroom Head Jig is an effective combination for alluring largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. These anglers occasionally referred to it as a juiced-up stickbait.


On Feb. 4 Gary Dollahon of Tulsa, Oklahoma, sent a note to the Finesse News Network about the three-inch Bobby Garland Crappie Baits' Slab Slay'R, which is manufactured by Gene Larew Lures. He reported that it is being manufactured in a new color that is called Lights Out, which he described as a black body with a super bright (but non-glow) chartreuse tail. He noted that it has "been really stirring up the message boards of late for guys chasing winter crappie and bass." 


The head and body of the Slab Slay'R are solid and encircled with eight rings or ribs. Its tail is flexible and cupped, which is similar to the configuration of the tail on Gene Larew Lures' Biffle Bug. 

The way the Slab Slay'R is affixed to a jig affects the action of the tail, as well as the way the bait moves as it falls towards the bottom. When it is rigged so the cup of the tail is up, it falls with a gliding and darting action, and it falls that way because of the tail's convex surface is facing down. Then when the cup of the tail is facing down, the tail becomes much more flexible, and the cup catches water, causing the Slab Slay'R to fall more vertically and vibrate more than it does when the cup is up. 


Dollahon says, "It's a lot of fun to play with this bait in clear water and to see just how much action it has. In my opinion, this bait is one of the most versatile fish-catchers on the market, and if I could have only one bait in my tackle box for any given outing, regardless of fish species, it would be the three-inch Slab Slay'R. I have that much confidence in the bait." 

Anglers can purchase a bag of 10 three-inch Lights Out Slab Slay'Rs from $2.57 to $2.99.
