Crankbaits

6 posts in this topic

I was just wondering, when out trolling and or casting crankbaits how much time do you give, when things are slow, before you tie on another? Have any of you ever tried a dozen or so differnt lures in one day on the water? I am just curious, I think at times I stick with certain lures for to long before moving onto something else. Thanks

When casting, I switch cranks every 5 - 10 minutes until I make contact. When trolling, I give myself a little more time as far as switching lures but rather play around with how much line I let out.

Otter, do you tie on directly to the lure or use a snaploc to exepedite the lure change? Thanks

A #1 or #2. cross lock. If there are two people in the boat start with one dark color crankbait and one light colored. If and when you make contact switch the other to that color but maybe a differant type crankbait. Keep doing this and you will find what they want. Make sure that all the bait will run at same depth your fishing.

Good call Muddog, I actually just pulled out my precision trolling book and checked out the running depth of the majority of my lures. Marked each lure in red perm marker as to the running depth. Thanks

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
