I have been known to drop a few bucks on crankbaits, but I have now drawn the line.

What is the most expensive crankbait you have purchased?

That's not a crankbait. It's a glide bait but still too much $$$

holy moly... and if you look down below the Bull Shooter it shows the "Slide swimmer 250" starting at a measly $160!! can you imagine hanging one of these baits on a deep tree/cable/shopping cart and losing it?!?!?! Or have a gator gar/catfish/grennel/pike just take it away from you??? I'd prob sit down in the boat and cry!! :-)

I need to start charging like 59.99 for my crankbaits then I won't have to sell many of them and the fish will bite them because they were so expensive.

Ah thanks fouzman, that one is new to me

Per Wired2fish
"A glide bait is nothing more than a single jointed hard swimbait that swims with a wider S-motion in the water.

What gives the bait category its name however is the ability to pop or pull the rod and cause the bait to careen and glide off to one side, often triggering a following bass to strike"

I know swimbaits are expensive. The small clubs I belong to payout is a couple hundred for first, so guess I will pass on my lure costing as much as MIGHT win.

Ya, simply "Google" hard swimbaits or glidebaits and you will see prices that are amazing if that one surprises you. And yes that is a lot for any bait...and some are actually hard to get w/a waiting line. Amazing.

I have paid $25 for a Zoom WEC CB. Also $45 for a Poe's 1500. But, those are hard to find baits and are pricey when you find them. Fish them only on 20+ lb test, so not doing the bait any good with that heavy of line tied to it. BUT, THEY also CATCH a LOT of fish, too. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

It has some serious vibration. It's a great bait but you will know it's there.

I would just call that one "a divorce" because that's what it would catch me if my wife caught me buying one...

A lot of the heavier swimbaits/ glide baits do sink slow. It's how they are designed and weighted. Water temps play a big role in fall rate.
