Absolute deepest diving crankbait you’ve used and can confirm depth?

Recommended Posts

20’+ only. How deep have you cranked with a regular cast and retrieve?

There are always variables to that. The deepest diving crank in the word will not go as deep if you use mono and a slower reel/retrieve as opposed to someone with flouro and burning it with a high reel. You can also make cranks run shallower than advertised and deeper than advertised.

The Dredgers touch down at advertised depth . I have caught bass   at 22 foot with a Berkely Dredger 25.5 on 12 lb Big Game ..

Deepest deep diving crankbait I have caught bass is the Bagley DB3Dredge, the lure slowly sinks! Count it to 40' if that how deep you want crank it, that is what I did when catch winter bass on an old parking lot break.

PS, the same parking lot is today high and dry being used as a luanch ramp parking, the lake is 50' below full pool.

If you're up for it ~ 

The Lucky Craft LC 6.5 XD Crankbait and the SKT Mag DR are both Beasts and will run to at least 25 feet.

But you'll earn Every Foot you get.

I have found that throwing cranks on a braid like suffix 832 has achieved the most diving depth due to line diameter. I've hit 24 feet with a 10xd on 832 with a 5.4 ratio reel

Killer Kraft Deep Monster 800. I´ve reached 24 feet with it and caught my deepest bass ever on a crankbait at 22 feet.

Mann's 30+ hitting bottom in 27'. The bait got there easily, but fishing it was anything but easy. The bill on the bait is about the size of my palm :lol:

trolling dd22 with braid and mono leader back 125 feet with a clip on the transom touches 24 feet. It's how we get striped bass when we need a couple of quick ones for dinner.

Dredger here as well, 22’ 10lb yozuri hybred on a 7’6” graphite rod, 6.4:1 reel. The setup will launch them a country mile for me.

The Dredger 20.5 does touch 21' at times on 10 pound fluoro and a slow speed reel
