New Baits from Mystic Tackleworks

Made from solid flat-sided balsa with no rattles, CP Series crankbaits give fish a different presentation than most crankbaits. For the bills, Powers uses Lexan, the same durable clear plastic used on the Apollo astronaut helmets. Each CP Series crankbait comes in 10 proven colors.

"Nothing in the world is more buoyant than balsa wood," Powers said. "A round bait has a wobble. A flat bait has a wiggle. I don't' like rattles because so many people throw rattling lures. My crankbaits give fish something different, a smaller profile with no rattles. For colors, keep it simple. People who fish for a living use a few colors all the time because those colors consistently catch fish. My personal favorite is sexy shad. In the spring, when water is cold, spring craw is Number 1! As soon as the spring frenzy is over, bass want sexy shad."
