A rare insight into crankbait fishing

Recommended Posts

what's a really good time to start using orange colored with black stripes colored square bill cranks. I haven't even caught a single fish on a square bill all winter/fall

What lot of info...  It seems I have been working crankbaits totally wrong according to what I have read, which would explain a lot.  I would have thought trying to mimic a injured fish with jerking motion followed by a pause would cause a reaction...  Of course I did once catch a small base that was smaller then the top water plug I was using..  LOL

 

I'd like to touch on a subject that I feel is important and that is crank bait retrieval  speed or reel ratio.   How do you know how fast to work or retrieve ?

That all depends on what bait you're using and what the fish want.  Most baits have an optimal retrieve range.  Too fast, and they spin out.  Too slow, and they don't reach depth.  With time, you develop a feel.

Mr. Miyagi say, "Crank fast on, crank fast off, crank slow on, crank slow off."
