This was the tread that helped me start fishing crankbaits. It's priceless.

 

You can find this thread and many like it in the Best of Bass Resource Sticky in the General Bass Fishing Section.

If y'all ain't figured it out yet, and to put it in the vernacular of Star Wars: Chris is the Yoda of crankbaits, and Raul is Obiwan Kenobe. The rest of us are mere Padawans!. :)

Is it going to be tough for someone new to cranks to learn with a glass rod?

Nope.  IMO the difference between graphite and fiberglass is the the amount of vibration.  I also noticed the fiberglass rods are a little heavier.  I fish the Mojo St Croix series and absolutely love them.

NO, there is no reason for someone with a glass rod to learn how to crank, actually my first rod was glass and that was how I learned.

Thank.  I grabbed a Premier Crank glass rod off craigslist a month ago.  The mojo cranks are composite though correct?

Read this, print it out for future refresh.

I'm like a broken record in some posts so everyone can think and refresh even I need too refresh too.

Crankbaits rock....

When I'm throwing crankbaits I'm dangerous to the bass.

Well well well, this is one of those time when knowledge is dangerous. Now I feel bad about getting 10 of those laser lures at 20 dollars a pop, I think about what must be going through the fish minds as they swim by all those blinking red lights. The poppa fish says to his son ( stay away from those glowing bobbers and fast women they'll both leave you at the bottom of the lake glowing red from the gills. Thanks for the info ( wisdom) I will go forth a a learn my crankbait. The bass should be scared because I put down bait gimmicks and picked up some knowledge. This is awesome!!!!!! Tight lines

I gotta put a reply down to bump this thread. Awesome advice from this one and to throw a "thank you" of sorts I'll say this;, I've caught the biggest fish (my PB and some other great fish) by getting creative with my crank baits of all depths. Just by trying different pop, crank, stop, rip and other methods of retrieve on my crank baits through grass or open water have gotten me more strikes (and fish) than any other baits lately especially with my square-bills. My Rapala Crankin' Rap (4-6') has been getting me so many fish it's starting to lose a considerable amount of paint now!

No joke, I have a 100% recovery rate, if you include the umbrella rig that I mangled to death.  Got to reuse the swimbaits, so only a few bucks lost.  Literally saved me hundreds of $$$.

If I can reach it with my lure retriever, I can get them back nearly 100% of the time. Not only do I get my own baits back, but I get everyone's baits out of the trees too.

I haven't been able to find this lure anywhere on the internet and when i mentioned it to a semi pro angler I know he seemed interested. Can anyone let me know more about this lure.  I am aware of pre-rapala wiggle warts, and this does have the storm logo on the bill underneath. But I was unaware that they made square bill wiggle warts in this style.  Please let me know, if you have information. 

 

Thanks
