10 Best Bass Crankbaits

10 Best Bass Crankbaits

Crankbaits have a lot of personality. Just look at the colors, shapes and features of the 10 we tested! Some say the best bass crankbaits are designed to catch fishermen rather than fish. Well, if you've ever had to entice a suspended largemouth or smallmouth to bite, chances are you reached for a crankbait.

You can use them anytime of year, in most fishing situations. A small diameter fluorocarbon line will help you fish them deep. They're a contact bait, so try to retrieve so they bounce off rocks, wood or any other structure.

We enjoyed casting these baits to see how deep they ran, what their action was like and how they casted. As you fill your tackle box with your favorite bass gear this spring, we hope this info helps you make the right decisions to catch more bass.
