Crankbait advise

6 posts in this topic

I'm looking for specific crankbait advise, as I'm going tackle shopping here in the next couple days. I'm looking for advise as to crankbait options in the following scenarios:

Fishing outside weededges- depth 12-15 fow. Will be cranking through the weeds at times, sandy-rocky bottom, both clear and green stained

Fishing around humps- 15 fow with hump to about 8-10 fow

Fishing through weedlines in 8-12 fow.

I'm looking for productive options as I have been really successful this spring throwing a DT3 Flat Fat. Please include your favorite color combinations as well and if you find that modifying a specific bait a certain way has worked well.

Thanks in advance!

Carl

Love the DT series. Last year I had a lot of success with the DT7 Flat. I think it is called Table Rock shad. Chartreuse and red with a purple top. Also always have luck on the old Fat Rap 7 in the silver. they don't make it anymore, only in glass which I really don't like too much. I generally put on red hooks, don't know if it really makes a difference, but I like the look.

DT's are definitely the way to go.

Hiya -

Yeah, the DT cranks are pretty good. I'd hate to be without them.

To the list though I'd add baits like Poes 300s and 400s, Bomber 6As, Strike King Pro Model series sizes 5 & 6, and Fat Free Shads... All pretty good baits.

Almost getting to be deep cranking time - might be my favorite way to fish largemouths...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

As many have stated the DT cranks are pretty darn nice, I would be one mad person if they stopped making them. I throw a ton of DT10 and DT flat side 7... I also like Bandit 200's and Poe 300's... all are in that range you were talking. Wiggle warts can be nice in the heat of the summer, hey have a nice wobble to them.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
