What are the top three colors for DD Crank baits? I've lost a few and need to replenish them. Looking to buy H20 Express until I get more confident in using them.

In no order- chart/blue back, citrus shad, sexy shad. Those 3 will catch fish anywhere, anytime, anywhere condition.

My hands down favorite color is strike kings gizzard shad! I'm sure there may be better colors but that's what I have confidence in.

I sell citrus and chartreuse blue backs probably 5-1 over any other color and imo it's about all you need for fishing deep cranks. At 20ft plus they don't see the colors like they do in 5ft of water. Just keep it simple on colors to many options out there personally I would rather have couple different brands of deep divers than a bunch of different colors. All of them have a slightly different action and sound that will make more difference than slight color differences. This is just my opinion though and take it for that. Strike king xd series, dd22, 6th sense, and several others are great crankbaits and all have their time and place to be used.

I wouldn't have any confidence in those h20 crankbaits.

I'd spend the money on shad and chartreuse/blue back strike king 6xd. I put owner stinger on them #2.

Thank me later!
