I keep a few of the little crappie crankbaits in my box but have never used them. Do any of yall use them and have much luck with them?

Bush Hog, I have been throwing a deep diving crank bait (10 to 12 feet) from time to time over the top of certain cover with out any success. I can see fish suspended above the cover and when I get directly above that cover the fish will spook off.

Going to keep tweeting until I find something that will work.

Jointed shad raps have done well for me on LBJ trolled behind my yak. Rapala has new small raps that I just snagged a bunch of that look really promising. Deep diving rapalas have caught several slabs as well...a lot of times they will hit bigger baits than you think!

I have to share one example of how trolling pays off. Two years ago, yes, I know its a long time ago, I was trolling Grapevine just outside Twin Coves using a large bass deep diver bait and wammmmmmo - I got a hit while covering the rocks on the west side of the mouth to the cove. It was a monster white crappie. It did not fight much but was I surprised when I got it to the boat! Anyway, I keep trying over and over again in that same area; could mark fish, but no more crappie; only LMB (ditch pickles). eeks
