Luhr-Jensen Cripped Herring Lure

The Crippled Herring is the most versatile lure you'll ever use. It can be vertically jigged, cast, and retrieved and even trolled in both fresh and saltwater alike.

Its high-action design takes advantage of the strong predator instinct programmed into game fish. For the greatest success, maximize action by choosing the smallest size that fits your needs. In combination with a fish finder, the bait can be targeting precisely in vertical jigging applications.

Fish the Crippled Herring vertically, with a slow, long upward motion of the rod tip followed by a fast drop of the tip. The lure will most often be taken on the downward fall. Pay attention for taps and hesitations on the fall and set the hook when they happen. In cold water conditions, pause at the bottom of the drop for up to three seconds to connect with lethargic fish.

  • Jigging, mooching, trolling, casting lure
  • Precision-engineered for maximum action
  • Life-like body shape
  • Suggested use: Saltwater, freshwater

Born of a man's desire to find a better lure, Luhr Jensen® was started during the Depression in a chicken coop by a man of the same name, and has today become a force to be reckoned with in the fishing lure industry.

For years after its founding the business remained small but steady until, capitalizing on the success of the Lake Michigan coho salmon planting project in the late 60's, Luhr Jensen became a household name. From $250,000 in sales in 1960 the company grew to over $1 million in 1970.

In the years that followed Luhr's sons took over operations and have continued to grow the business. Today, the company's legendary commitment to quality lures continues.  With both saltwater and freshwater offerings, Luhr Jensen is sure to have the exact lure you need for your next fishing endeavor.
