Now, you may be thinking: What? Catch a CATFISH with a lure? Yes you can! And I think I might have found the best lure for catfish! It’s this cute suicide duck fishing lure.
Introducing the Savage Gear 3D Suicide Duckling Lure that my daughter gave my husband for Christmas!
IN A HURRY?==> Get Your Own Suicide Duck Fishing Lure HERE!
Now, several weeks ago, if not a couple of months ago, we had seen a really awesome catfish catch video. Some guy is in a small water boat and fishing in a little river area was tossing his lure into an underwater cave-like hole in the river bank.
At the time I saw the video it was mainly showing that a catfish could be caught on a lure – this being a HUGE catfish. I completely forgot about that video, until this when Christmas my husband unwrapped the 3D Suicide Duck, the Woodland Duck fishing lure version, and my daughter showed me the video again. Sure enough it’s our best lure for catfish!
I am super excited but we haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, with work and holidays. I have the perfect spot picked out too! **UPDATE I took a video of my husband using one of these (he owns two) baby duck lures posted further on down the page.
Here’s the video that I am talking about (made by gauleapparente), in case you haven’t seen it (you can see the duck well at 4:08):
Now, my daughter had to research to where to find this and it’s sold by Savage Gear on Amazon. They were selling out quickly, but luckily she got to purchase the woodland duck one, in the larger size duck.

Baby Black Bird Fishing Lure in Action
Here is a short, and far from perfect, video of my husband using the 4 1/4″ Baby Black Bird. I couldn’t see how well it was recording since it was getting dark, but I attempted to show how the little feet really paddle as you pull the duck in. My husband also kept reeling too fast. You will also hear him say our dog’s name at the end of the video; that’s because our dog tried to grab the duck lure with his mouth!
Different Sizes and Different Colors
They come in 3 different colors (yellow, black and woodland) and 2 different sizes, 4 1/4″ and 6 inches long. The yellow duckling is great for any river or pond that you would see yellow ducklings on and anywhere else for that matter. We do not have the yellow one yet.
The Woodland Duck fishing lure is my favorite because I like it’s coloring and feel like in our area of Texas we might have a better shot with landing a big cat or bass with it.
This is my husband’s 6″ Woodland Duck. Apparently the large duck lures come with an extra treble hook, as our smaller one did not.
Suicide Duck Fishing Lure Options:
While I like the Baby Black Bird one, and completely know for a fact that catfish eat black birds (story coming), I do not like how it just looks all painted black instead of something enhancing it to look more real. As well, this is a black duck, not a true black bird.
That said, one year my husband and I were boat fishing in a curvy long river. We found a deep ledge with a water cave to throw out lines it. Hubby hooked and caught a giant catfish. When we got home to clean it (yes, we eat our catches, or we release them), the cat’s belly had 6 baby blackbirds in it!! I don’t know if that was from one clutch, or what, but SIX birds in his tummy!!
Have we caught any fish with the suicide duck fishing lure?
In short no. But the real truth of it is we haven’t gotten to go anywhere to take them fishing yet. We have been fishing, but a lot of the places we have gone are too swift for these lures. In the video I show of my husband using the 4 1/4″ baby black bird, it’s an old cow pond where we live. While I know there’s perch and a few catfish in there, (and snakes!), I’m not sure on bass. We were hoping one would hit it, but we didn’t stay long enough to find out as it was getting dark soon (it was mainly a trip to walk the dog and take a quick video of the lure in action.)
We still have the perfect place picked out to try and duplicate the YouTube video I shared of the guy in the little boat. It’s got a little under water cave just like the one where we caught that catfish all those years ago with a belly full of baby black birds.
So, I will keep you updated when a catch happens! (If my husband ever gets time off again poor guy!)
If you choose to purchase one of these Baby Duck Fishing Lures from Amazon, I get a tiny percentage and I thank you! Let me know how it works for you and I most definitely will keep you up to date on my catches and experience with this little, eh, big guy!
