Manns Lure

What are some good crankbait techniques?

Ive been doing all around fishing for as long as i can remember. But just recently, I have looked into starting to use crankbaits. Im interested in fishing largemouth bass with shallow crankbaits, considering I live in south louisiana and the deepest water in the area is about 5 feet. what are some good techniques to use on shallow diving crankbaits?

If your fishing in that shallow of water you'll only have a few basic presentations and retrieves- "Burning" and "Stop and Go". The most important thing you can do is get a decent Crankbait that only goes about a FT deep. Here is a list of some of the best:

#1. Manns, Baby 1-

#2. Manns, 1-

#3. Bass Pro Shops, Egg

#4. Norman, Fat Boy- (for fishing Rip/Rap and woody structure)

#5. Manns, Waker Elite

#6. Ima, Roumba

#7. Norman, Square Bill Wake

#8. Wordens, Timber Tiger- (for fishing Rip/Rap and woody structure)

That's about it.

Think about getting some Frog bait's. They work well for shallow, weedy, areas- http://www.basspro.com/SPRO-Bronzeye-Frogs/product/73278/

(If you plan to use a frog lure a word of advice- use a stout 7' - 7' 6" medium/heavy rod with at least 40LB Braided line. If you use Mono or Fluorocarbon you will experience fewer hook-up's and lost fish.)

Hope this helps? And good luck!
