The Swim'n Charlie is a great hybrid crankbait / swimbait. As with all Joe Bucher Lures is was designed to catch fish. Joe won't put out a fishing lure until he has proven it will work- and work well. In a variety of great baitfish colors, the Swim'n Charlie is one of the best fishing lure choices in the tackle industry. And where else will you find the best deal on Swim'n Charlies? You guessed it, at the world's greatest site for discount fishing lures - Overstock Bait and Tackle.

  • The Swim'n Charlie is a highly realistic 21st century hybrid crankbait combing the natural look and feel of soft plastic with a fixed diving lip, common to traditional hard bodied crankbaits. The result is a superb lure with an incredible life-like action that will fool wary big gamefish of all species in gin clear waters and heavy fishing pressure conditions.
  • The Swim'n Charlie will catch big fish during all seasons - spring, summer and fall. The secret is to simply get in front of a big fish. If that fish is shallow, casting the lure will do the trick. If the fish is deep, you may need to troll the lure off a weighted line or downrigger. Trolling a Swim'n Charlie off a planer board is sure to get big suspended fish cruising over open water.
  • It is almost impossible to fish the Swim'n Charlie incorrectly since it has a built-in diving bill which creates the lure's incredible natural swimming action. A simple cast followed by a steady slow to medium retrieve is likely to produce excellent results. However, a stop-and-go retrieve or a pumping action (on the rod) creates additional flash and triggering options for even the most reluctant gamefish.

Extended Information

Joe Bucher is changing the look of his packaging along with a few other changes. To get the new look into the big box stores, they are clearing out everything with the old packaging. Joe Lures will remain a mainstay in the Muskie world, but deals like this run out when we run out of product.

lip peeled off May 26, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Orange , CA United States  
I totally agree with the earlier review where lip would peel just  after  opening the package. Cheap plastic used.

Terrible bait. Lip completely fell off and broke. May 7, 2012
Reviewer: Craig Burkhart from Crestline, OH United States  
Upon just removing this lure from the package I knew something wasn't right. The lure itself was "peeling", like a snake out of its skin.

Then when trying to tie it on, the lip just fell to pieces. No pressure was applied. It didn't break, crack, etc. The lip just flat out fell to multiple pieces like old stale bread.

Thankfully I got this lure 50% off in a clearance sale or I would be upset. For the $2 I lost, it was a lesson learned.
