How to Choose the Right Crankbait Lure

Crankbaits are an excellent way to lure in walleye, bass, trout, and crappie. They make for excellent bait imitation lures in a variety of conditions. When you're choosing the right crankbait lure, first consider the depth you'll be fishing. Your crankbait should run 1-2 feet deeper than the depth you'll be fishing. For deep diving crankbaits, make sure you have the reach you'll need to catch your target species.

Opt for faster-moving baits if you'll be fishing in cold water. And as for all baits, check the shape and color to ensure you are mimicking the correct prey species.
