tunning cranks

2 posts in this topic

I made some 5-8" cranks out of wrc, and some have large lip angles some have shallow, my question is if I move the line tie further from the body of the bait will I get more wiggle?

some are large minnow shaped wtih small round lips and the others are shad shaped wtih med. round lips. I fist started wtih the line ties on the nose of the lure, then tried moving them out but I had to re=engineer with a through wire, so itstill a work in progress, what thoughts have you got? the shad body is rounder but its no perfectly cylindrical its thicker at the back and thinner at the belly.

You can get a lot of info on crankbait building at

tackle underground. In my experience, getting the line tie too far away from the body of the lure makes the lure less stable as far as geting it to run right.
