These crankbaits are longer and slender. They simulate a lot of bait fish with this longer profile that is completely different to a sunfish. Fish such as northern pike, smallmouth bass, muskie, salmon and trout prefer these crankbaits over the shorter, fatter crankbaits.
Rod, Reel & Line
Most anglers use heavier tackle as these lures are usually considered more of a big fish bait. You can use medium to heavy action rods and reels with line from 12 to 30 pound test and maybe even heavier for big fish like muskie.
