Let us help you catch the big one with our premium Cranks!
Crankbaits are used to catch multiple species, however the main species targeted is Bass. Bass respond positively to these lures, being primarily reactive fish. If you're looking for a faster paced style of Bass fishing then Crankbaits are your best bet.
Patterns and colors will be used to match the local forage in your water, however having multiple colors and shades like chartreuse, green/brown/natural and black is very useful depending on the color and clarity of the water you fish. If the water you fish contains Shad or herring, then a Shad colored crank is a must-have. Clear water is usually fished with a silent, natural colored or brightly colored crank while heavily stained and muddy waters should be fished with loud/rattling, larger lures with darker colors.
The action of a Crankbait depends on the “lip” (the clear plastic bill on the front of the lure). A “Squarebill” crank has a wild erratic side to side action and is useful during periods when fish are very active in warmer water and usually run more shallow from 2-5 feet. The diamond or rounded bills have a less erratic action and a tight wobble for when the water is colder and/or fish are being finicky, however all styles of bills can be used situationally during all times of the year. Crankbaits will have a range of depth that can be found in the description and will cover water depth from 1 to 20+ feet.
As stated earlier you can catch multiple other species using Crankbaits. The smaller or micro Crankbaits that are an inch or so or under will be used to catch Panfish such as Crappie, Perch and Bluegill. The larger models will be used to catch larger gamefish such as Bass, Bowfin, Pike, Snakehead, etc...
Tight lines and Fish on!
