I realize that each has their own merit, but which ones do you use more often than not? I know that this is all dependent on location of fish and in that alone, makes this a very, very tough decision to make.

If you are on a new body of water and were looking for fish to bite a crankbait, let's say, would you use a shallow, a middle, or a deep diver? Do you want it to wobble tightly, or do you want it to let it all hang out?

I like shallow runners. In my opinion, anything that runs about 4 ft. deep is considered a shallow runner. And I want that bait to wobble as wide as it can.

Being as most places I fish are shallow, I chose a shallow runner and a tight wobble.

A tight wobble, eh? You cast your vote as a wide wobble. :rofl1: Rodney, you don't care. You just want that thing to wobble anyway you can get it wobble, right? :shadrap_ft:

I like the dt series from rapala The 6 and 10s ( when the bill stays on) and for the shallow baits I like the bandits.Wobble is mainly for the shallow baits I think.

This is another toughy. It really depends on what im fishing for. Like for bass. I really enjoy a craw crank. Then for pike I go with a rouge. And for trout I go with a rapala. This is a real tough and generalized one. I know most talk about bass on here. And I need to think bass. So in that case I will choose the craw paterns as my go to bait.

I really like the RC 1.5 crankbaits,shallow square bill,I like to throw it around lay downs, and piers, the fatfree shad works well also, I like to reel it pretty fast, until I hit cover.

I like a wide wobble. Usually throw Bandit 200 & 300 in medium depths, Fat Free Shad in deeper water. I got a Bandit 700 Fire Tiger for Christmas. Can't wait to throw it. Hardly ever throw one in shallow water, except that I'll throw the Bandit all the way to the bank and root it in the mud all the way out.

Last year for hardbaits I threw 0 deep and medium running crankbaits even though I have a ton of them.

I did throw Rapala X-Raps, Husky Jerks, and Subwalks and some rattlebaits and some Manns Baby Minus One's.

I throw mostly shallow due to the fact that the majority of the lakes I fish are quite shallow and get extremely weedy. I started fishing a couple of lakes last year that have much deeper water and sufficient underwater structure to dictate tossing some medium runners and even some deep runners this year. We'll see if it works for me.
Basspastor, I toss the minus ones alot...Love that lure!!

At the same time though, there are some baits, do to the natural color scheme and their action, that will get action no matter where you go. Determining which ones those are takes many road trips! My wife loves me for that... :wack:
