Buyer’s Guide: Deep Diving Crankbaits For Winter And Summer Bass Fishing

Which crankbaits catch the most fish? With thousands of crankbaits to choose from, which baits are worth trying? Today we’ve gathered our top picks for Summer Time Cranking and our top picks for Winter Time Cranking, and combined them into the ultimate Crankbait Buyer’s Guide. No need to second guess this year, these baits have stood the test of time!

When most anglers think of deep cranking they think of summer ledge fishing and Fall feeding frenzies. While there has been a huge swing in the past year toward Winter time cranking, many anglers still don’t realize its full potential. Armed with the right baits, Winter cranking can produce the biggest bass of the entire year! 

Today’s video has been separated into two categories so you don’t confuse the right baits for Summer with the right baits for Winter. You’ll find links to all of the baits (in the order they appeared in the video) along with rod and reel recommendations. All of the baits go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
