Cranking with current

2 posts in this topic

I have been testing my cranking abilities on the Missouri River here in SD. Question is does it matter weather or not you travel with the current or against it? And if going with the current how much faster do you think I need to go to keep the crank down in the zone?

Thanks

it seems counter intuitive but cranks will dive much much deeper going down stream than up. you will still be going slower upstream since your crank is seeing your boat speed + the current speed though. if you tried going 3 mph upstream in a 3 mph current your crank will be feeling 6 mph!
