Tiny Crankbaits Can Hit the Spot

When fishing for bass, large crappies and other predators that inhabit ponds and small lakes, the smaller crankbaits will sometimes out-produce the larger versions of the same bait. The predators prey more often on young-of-the-year bluegills than on older preyfish simply because most of the preyfish never reach heftier sizes. A big crankbait looks unfamiliar and alarming. Tiny cranks are the norm as far as normal prey is concerned and the predators are conditioned to eat creatures in the one- to three-inch size ranges.
