Crankbait question

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's a question for you crank guys: I have some cranks that are silent, some that make noise... some lighter or smaller than others... so when I buy a crank, how would I know what is silent, a one-knocker, etc? Cause when shaken inside the package they pretty much all sound the same to me cause the hooks clink. But from what I have heard on this page it has to do with the weight rating of the lure?

Hold onto the hooks CAREFULLY and shake the bait.

Most molded plastic crabkbaits have rattles. Wooden crankbaits don't have rattles.

Try reading the package the crankbait is sold in. The  package defines the lures performance like weight, depth it claims to run and whatever advantages it has like rattles or one knocker etc, to help sell it.

I think the type of wobble is more important that the knock

I think rattle or no rattle is more important than the wobble.

Well I think color is more important. . . . lol

 

Back on topic. I unless the package has it listed which they normally do. You can't really tell if they rattle without opening them and holding the hooks like others have said

I think basic size/shape is more important than color, rattle, or wobble...:annoyed1:

The best way I’ve found is to research the bait. If I’m standing in a shop and can’t figure it out, bless the technology gods and google it. Some lures do you the rattles as weight but not always true as @WRB eleduded to with silent balsa/cedar baits. Hope this helps

Strange, I wasn't aware of starting this as a topic, so I guess a mod took the liberty... lol. Fair enough. Anyway, thanks for the info! Maybe it's the lures I buy but I've never actually seen it listed anywhere. I do tend to go more for the shape and color firstly when considering which to buy. I'll try reading the finer print on the back next time to see if anything about knock is mentioned, but I've only had limited crank success so I'll probably stick with what I have for now. I feel like I have a fair selection of varieties that should work in different situations, just a matter of getting better with them and being in a location the fish want to bite them.
