All depends on where in the water column I want to target. Given that I'm a Rapala fan, my go-to cranks are

Jointed Shallow Shad-Rap

DT-4

DT-6

Original Shad-Rap

Lipless Rattlin' Rap

 

Colors: Mostly natural - baby bass, bluegill, crawdad, pumpkinseed, perch. Though I do have a couple others - firetiger and bleeding olive shiner.

I have waaaaay too many SPRO cranks to list.  My absolute favorite is an Original Little John in Cell Mate (computer chip bill).  It absolutely whacks everything that swims in St Clair when we go in late May.

Strike King 1.5 Squarebill-- perch and bluegill

Rapala DT 10 -- Bluegill

Rattletrap--Red Craw

 

By far on the lakes I fish the Squarebill just seems to be the one that they can't resist all year round.  So I don't really stray from it very often.
