Norman Tennessee Killer Crankbait

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about these? My understanding is they are a vintage design. Made of Cedar,flat sided, with a coffin shaped medium length diving lip.

Does anyone recall the diving depth on these? When were they produced?

I do seem to remember these but can't offer much help. They do sound similar to Poe's RC1 and 2.

I was going through my pile of "hasn't been used in a while" stuff and found 3 of these. They say 4-5 feet deep.

Coffin lip and a rattle. Used to catch quite a few on the RC1. Funny how you stray away from baits that work in pursuit of new ones that might work.

Might be different than mine. Mine are made of Cedar and have no rattle.

Yup.  I have a couple of them.  They go about 7'-8' deep.  They came out in the early 90's ('91, I think).

I agree, it sounds very much like the old Poes cedar flat sides, they were the first flat side baits I ever used and were killer in spring.

Redo, google bass fishing archives!

What I gathered they were made by someone else & sold by Norman.

Yes, they're like the RC1 and RC3 design, but bigger.  Think RC5.
