SPRO Little John. Citrus Shad is by far my favorite color when I can get away with using it but also use cell mate, chart/blue, nasty shad, spooky nasty and of course craw. The MD (7-9ft.) is my all around crank but I carry and throw all models of the little john from 3 foot deep to 25 foot deep I throw the Little John. I haven't found another crankbait that comes close in my opinion. As far as what lakes for me the answer is any. I have something that I can throw anywhere, even if it isn't the most productive lure, it's my confidence lure and that's worth a lot.

BRTJr22,

I buy a lot off of Ebay, but I will talk to Dieter and see if he will start producing them again. He got off into his Missing Link bug and stopped production of his Stanford Cedar baits and they are awesome. LOTS of 4, 5's and even a 9.18 have been caught on them by me. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Like the SK models. Have also been happy with the Academy H2O brands(change hooks on smaller baits). Going up in price I have some Profound Outdoors crankbaits that I have liked using.

For shallow crank baits the Mann's Baby 1 minus is hard to beat.

Thanks for all the input. I am making a list. I assume everyone varies their retrieves. Also interested to see how many use swivels versus tying straight to the crankbait.

No swivel or snaps for me with exception to a wiggle wart.

As you can see the choices are wide and ranging. I throw what I have confidence in at the moment. Experiment is the best way. What works for one does not work for others. I have thrown the same bait as my partner and vise versa, one will catch while the other won't, it sometimes works that way.
