Spro LJ DD is one of my favorites. The 6XD is also a very good deep crank, and no self respecting angler would do without a few DD22's.

The Luhr Jenson "hot lips" are a great crankbait in all Depths, but I warn you they can be hard to throw. I think it's about price, really, soo how much do you wanna pay per bait?

I throw a Spro Little John DD and Strike King 6XD in those depth ranges. The only other deep diver I throw is the 10XD, and it get's thrown 90% of the time. The 10XD always produces fish.

Norman's and Bomber Fat Free Shad. The FFS won't get down to 20ft. but will hit 16ft. on a decent cast using 10lb.

DT14, 16, 20 are great and catch just about anything that swims.   If your looking for something to dredge/drag/bounce off the bottom by selecting a bait that runs many feet deeper than the depth of water then stay away from the DT series.  Their bills can't handle being fished that way.

Strike King 5XD and 6XD would be my top choices of baits that I've used. I really like the looks of the Duo bait but I haven't fished one yet. The Spro Little Jon DD is a really good bait with a different sound to it.

If you guys have not had the chance to use the Sixth Sense Crush 300DD, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.  I think these are the closest thing to a custom bait that you can buy in a retail type setting.   I have had good luck with these baits, and will bet you will also.   They also have the 500DD that is listed as reaching 20-28ft.

 

Best thing is they are inexpensive at 7.99.  All in all a very solid bait.

DD22's all the way pretty much the only deep diver I throw, have a box full of them can't beat the performance, color selection, and the price is great., they have put a lot of nice fish in the boat.

I'm going to try the LC X-14 and X-18 this year. (top row in pic) They look promising and the bills are tough. I think with a little added weight I can get the X-18 to 20'.

SK 5xd's and 6xd's are my top two. I can get both 20+ feet deep long lining, and the 5xd will hit 12' or so on a normal cast, and the 6xd about 15' on a normal cast. Slightly deeper (a foot or two) if I am really bombing them out there.
