Crankbait Buying Guide

Type of Water

The first thing you need to consider when buying crankbaits is the type of water you plan to fish in. Different types of crankbaits are designed for different types of water. For example, the lipless style is ideal for fishing in shallow water, while deep diving lures are designed to get deeper in the water column. We carry a variety of crankbaits for a range of depths. We recommend keeping a variety of crankbaits for different depths in your tackle box as the fish will move up and down the water column depending on water temperature.

Size and Weight

Larger and heavier lures are better for fishing in deeper water, while smaller and lighter ones are more suitable for fishing in shallower water. Also, the p[hysical size of your crankbait should be adjusted depending on the size of fish you're targeting.

Shape and Design

The shape of a crankbait will affect its performance in certain applications. A streamlined design with a narrow body is best for faster retrieves, while a wider and rounder body is better for slower retrieves.

Rattles and Noise

Some crankbaits come with rattles or other noise-making devices that can attract fish. If you are fishing in murky water or low light conditions, a rattle can help attract fish. A lot of anglers make their own customizations to add some noise.


The color of a crankbait plays a role in its effectiveness. You should choose a color that matches the natural food source of the fish in the area you are fishing. Brighter colors can be more effective in murky water or low light conditions.


You should consider a crankbait made from high-quality materials that are durable and can withstand the rigors of fishing. Cheaper crankbaits can seem like a bargain but may not last as long as their better built counterparts.


Finally, you should consider your budget when buying crankbaits. There are many different types of crankbaits available at different price points, so choose one that fits within your budget. Longer lasting, more durable finishes will cost more but may be worth it. A littler trial and error helps and be sure to check reviews.

By considering these factors, you can choose the right crankbait for your fishing needs and increase your chances of catching more fish.
