Question about Crawfish Crankbaits

Recommended Posts

Im talking about regular crankbaits,shaped like all other fish imitating crankbaits.

The question I have is if a Crawfish swims backwards,then why do tackle manufacturers make crawfish cranks that appear to be swimming forward.

Whats the reasoning behind this and why is it successful?

ExampleS below:

    I don't think it really matters.  I believe that as long as it is digging into the bottom and it has a paint scheme of a crawfish I honestly believe that the bass don't notice which way it is swimming.

Unless you're just stitching the bait across the bottom I don't think it really matters where the eyes or claws are located. As long as the fish are eating dads' and you're in the right spot, a crank that mimics the colors of those dads will catch those fish. It's a reaction bait and they don't have the time to count segment lines or locate the eyes and claws, they either eat or don't.
