floating crankbaits for sale
Floating crankbaits are baits that float to the surface when casted out. The floating crankbait will dive and swim when you reel in and will float horizontally to the surface when you stop reeling. The faster your retrieve after the cast will cause more action to the bait to dive and wobble. Pausing your retrieve will freeze the bait and it will slowly rise. This makes them an ideal bait for fishing structure.


Hitting submerged rocks and bouncing the bait off of tree stumps and the like is when these shallow running crankbaits do their best work. A quick change in direction when you feel the structure with your rod tip and pausing will cause the bait to float up away from the structure. Typically, this after structure bump is when the strike happens. The floating up pause will allow the bait to clear the obstacle, and avoid the hanging-up.


Floating crankbaits with angled short lips for running real shallow (2 feet or less) water are wicked effective fishing clear shallow water structure. Often times when a spinner bait is called up for these situations, they often times prove not to be that all effective in very clear water. A shallow running crankbait will produce more frequent strikes in most clear water shallow conditions, even over spinner baits.


Try using “natural colored” floating shallow running crankbaits that plow near the water surface instead. Tailor your bait size to the size of the forage minnows of the water you are fishing. Larger forage fish, choose larger sized crankbaits. Conversely, smaller forage minnows, select smaller baits.  Stained water, select brightly colored baits. Fishing shade lines, under docks, shallow weed lines, and the like will allow you to keep the bait in the strike zone longer than fishing worms, jigs, tube baits and the like. Floating crankbaits should have a place in your tackle box!
