New Idea

Recommended Posts

Once i tried putting bb,s in crank bait. this worked greaat, it made much more noise than rattles. itis also cheaper to do.

you just buy your favorite hallow crank bait

you drill a hole in top of the bait

put bout ten bb,s in the hole

epoxy over the hole to seal it off (sand off any extra epoxy)

Not really all that sacred, either. I don't know of any crankbaits that have been declared as holy.

Nothin' new about that idea, but if you want rattles, buy lures with rattles...

Haha had to read the post more carefully to pick up on that one!

I agree with roadwarrior. I think it's smarter to buy one with rattles than risk ruining a bait to save a few bucks. Even if your craftsmanship was perfect you could still change the bait just enough to throw off its action.

How is it cheaper? Do cranks with rattles cost more than cranks without rattles?

How much is your time worth to you? Even minimum hourly wage has more value.

Messing up the bait would be my biggest concern. Most likely you are going to ruin the bait, so you are out $4 or $5. Then to replace that bait, it's going to be another $4 or $5 to buy a new one. Companies make rattling crank baits and silent crank baits for a reason....

I guess I'm the real dummy in turning rattling baits silent.
