America was a better place back in the day when you could find a bar or a traveling side show that let drunk people or idiots fight a monkey

Bandit 300 is good as well.

I'm with Vinny. Nomans deep little at 4.99 is my first choice. Luhr Jensen 1/4 oz. Hot lips is right there also.
We are driving the bandwagon my friend

One problem i have is staying with what works i need to venture out to different manufacturers lures too.
I'm hooked on the Bomber Model A's and the Norman series crankbaits right now. To me my best crankbait was the bomber FAT A but its discontinued right now. I'd find one that produces were you fish and stock up on what works for you. With the deeper running cranks, most of them will float up to the surface when you stop running them. When i seen this i run the deeper running cranks and adjust my line speed to make them run where i want them too.
My favorite, successful colors are;
Redcraw / red apple craw
Fire craw / fire tiger
Silver shad / chrome
A shot of craw scent or YUM won't hurt either. I use scents alot and cranks that rattle too.
When my crank first hits the water I swing the rod rearward so the crank will burn/rattle right down to the proper depth at the same time i will reel it very slow. I like doing this because the crank will dive to where it should be right away with no loss yardage.
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....
