It's getting nearly impossible to find Gene Larew Salt craws. I use both the 4" and 6" size. I remember there was someone pouring a knock off but can't seem to find them. Seems everything on the market flops, flutters or has multiple appendages, subtle is what I prefer. Anyone point me in the right direction?

I ordered a bunch awhile back in that silver color Biffle is using right now because there were getting hard if not impossible to find.

I thought Big Bite Baits had something similar.

I have a lot of 4โ€, 5โ€, and some 6โ€. I would have more 6โ€ but I traded some to James at falcon lake tackle a couple years ago. The reason I have so much is that I had a tackle shop inside of another retail store a few years ago and I took all them home with me when I sold the place. If you would like some or all of them you are welcome to them for more than a fair price. Not looking to make anything on them just recoup my dealer cost mostly.
Some colors I know I have are black and blue, junebug blue, watermelon, red bug , pumpkin pepper green, pumpkin pepper green and blue 4โ€ only and a few others. Let me know!

Pradco bought the entire Gene Larew lineup in late 2019, and moved the production from Tulsa to Fort Smith just a month or so before Covid. I'm hoping that's the reason for the shortages and they're not discontinuing the baits. Pradco has scrapped some of the best baits ever built after buying them out though. I hated to see Gene Larew sell to them.

There is a old tackle store in Louisiana north of Shreveport on hwy 1 that might have what you are looking for. I'm not sure what color you want but they had Gene Larrew salt craws the last time I was there.
