Love them in rivers! However I never have much luck with them in lakes. I do suggest getting at least one though if you do fish rivers for small mouth bass.

One of the all time best cranks in my book, at least where there are a fair amount of crawdads. Catches smallies, largemouth, and anything else pretty much. I do well with them in both lakes and rivers. My favorite is the rebel wee craw in chartreuse.

I really like the looks of the "stream craw" color in the new deep diver version- there are a lot of crawdads up here and I fish for smallmouth with a largmouth here and there.  I mainly fish reservoirs

They do very well on smallies in rivers. I have never tried them in lakes. Maybe I will try that this year.

Anything that lives in the lake will nail them, not just bass.

I have done very well with a similar bait, the Thunderclaw, in rivers.  My fishing partner uses the rebel and doesn't do as well, but still gets them.  I prefer the shallower ones and try to run them along the banks, fish will take them right off the bottom!  Never had a small mouth, but I almost always get a LM off it when I go out.

Yes, I use them, and they produce for me, especially in the fall.
