Best Flat Side Crankbait

Recommended Posts

Well, with Fall fast approaching it will soon be flat side crank time and i was just wondering what is the best bang for your buck flat side crank? I don't really want to spend $10 per lure but I also don't want to buy a cheap lure and have to turn around and upgrade all the split rings and hooks which makes any savings a moot point. Let me know your thoughts!

Admittedly I have not used many . The Bomber Flat A has caught me a lot   of  fish .

SPRO Little John in whatever depth you need and any color you want as long as it's Cell Mate.

Lucky Craft Flat CB DR - has a deep one knocker and runs 8ish feet on 12lb fluoro. However, you're going to spend $12-15 to get one. I've got about 50 of these things and I've gotten many of them custom painted since the color options are a little limited when it comes to craw colors.

I'm a big fan of the 6th sense flat 75x.. but until our friend here on the forum solves his customer service issue, I won't be sending them anymore money. It pains me, I love their stuff but I hate seeing the CS on growing businesses go to crap 😣

Buy them from TW if CS is lacking

I have always been very happy with them

You are quite correct. It would appear that they made good after all. I do love a happy ending 😊 good thing too, I have a pile of 6th sense stuff in my shopping cart on TW waiting for the labor day sale lol

The only thing I cannot stand about 6th Sense is that they have had trouble keeping up with their inventory. For example, the Flat 75X in my favorite color, Wild Lava Craw, has been on backorder since at least February and keeps getting pushed back. I suppose thats really an artifact of a company that has really grown fast and is somewhat out of their control though.

I really like the Rapala DT Flat 7 and the Bomber Deep Flat A but they are very different. The Rapala is balsa but it dives right at the sweet spot for mid fall bass and I've caught a lot of fish on it. The Bomber Deep Flat A is my smallmouth flat crank, it is basically a lipless crank with a lip, and as hard as it is to believe, it actually works in colder water than a Shad Rap. I had a day that the Deep Flat A accounted for 11 good size smallmouth 14" to 20" in a mid December outing with 44 degree water temps. A friend of mine told me to use it instead of a jerkbait because the water had some color and he was spot on, that thing is a fish catching machine. Since that trip 16 years ago I always have a Deep Flat A tied on when fishing md Spring and Fall smallmouth, Apple Red Crawdad and Pearl Shad are the only colors I have because they work so well I never felt the need for any others.
