The Dancin' Raider is a unique bait for Muskie trolling. Invented along with the famous Topraider by Joe Bucher who knows his stuff. Joe Lures have been a Muskie fishing mainstay for a long time. Another unbelievable Musky topwater lure, that also has a tremendous following, its now available at nearly half of what you'd pay in a big box store. Here you can buy a full selection of the top baits including the related Depthraiders, Shallowraiders and CD Raiders along with other lures of your choice. Some call Joe Lures the best muskie baits in the world.
Always use thick diameter, heavyweight line for topwater fishing to reduce line drag, line sinkage, and improve overall buoyancy. A medium/heavy power musky action rod of at least 6-1/2 feet also promotes better hooksets. After your cast, begin retrieving immediately. Start your retrieve faster initially while simultaneously lifting upwards on your rod tip to lift as much line off the water as possible. Then, level off your rod tip angle as the lure nears the boat finishing up with the rod tip actually touching the water. If the target is muskies, always finish with a figure 8 maneuver at boat side to trigger any followers. When a fish does strike the Super TopRaider®, try to set the hook with a body rotation sideways while driving your rod tip downwards. This reduces missed strikes and results in a much higher percentage of solid hookups.

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. The lure will remain a mainstay in the Muskie world, but deals like this run out when we run out of product.
