I am wanting everyone's opinion on the best Mid depth CB that gets down to 12ft of water? I'm targeting fish right now in the 9-12ft range but don't really ever crank in that depth zone. Now I know this is comparing boats or trucks bc everyone will have a different opinion but I'm looking for different options. Thanks for your help

Love the 3xd and 6xd but have had literally zero success with the 5!

That is strange. I like all three but I throw the 6 more than the other two.

Since the 6XD works for you, have you thought about throwing it with a larger diameter line to make it run a little shallower.


I like the H2O cranks and the 6th sense brand.

A straight Series 5 is a GREAT crankbait! This time of year, I also like the Spro Little John MD. It's a flat sided crankbait. Also the Rapala DT10

I know man it is! Caught countless fish on the 3 and 6 but I have never caught a fish on the 5! Weirdest thing ever and no I haven't thought about the bigger line! Problem with that is I dont believe the fish are keying in on that big of a bait!

I love the Little John MD but haven't been able to get it down to 12fow even with 10lb flouro and to scared to go lighter than that!

6th sense 250 MD will hit 11 ft with 12 flouro. Has a little tighter wiggle than most which is good right now and is extremely snag free for a round lipped crank

I'll only use the 5XD for suspending fish ive marked on the graph and burn it on an 8.0:1 reel- pure reaction. 6XD for digging up the dirt, rocks and off lay downs up to 18fow on a 17# AbrazX and a lure knocker handy. As for a 3XD, ive lost to many to count so i generally stick with a square bill or lipless. Thats my 2cents.
