Deep Water Cranking

Guest rocky

Recommended Posts

I have trolled crankbaits many times in shallower water with # 7 Shad raps but have never tried the deepwater cranking. I would like to try cranking on the deep gravel or mud flats and was wondering how or what the best way is to rig up for this?

Lead core would be best, then followed by either deep diving cranks (like number 11 deep tail dancers or Reef Runner Deep Divers), or 3-ways with a 3oz lead wait and any size crank you want.

My experience has been though that the fish do not prefer the ultra intense wobble of a large billed crankbait
