Deep Crankbaits

Off the top of my head, TU members Coley and Skeeter leap first to mind for well-made reliable cranks that will do that job for Bass fishermen.

Marty Burns made this one for me (cedar).

20' is no problem, and I've kneeled it down to 24' (cranking with 20 lb. braid).

The best super-deep crank I've ever used. The bait has a pronounced wiggle without a lot of roll, so there is some resistance quite a bit livlier than something like a Poe's 400P or 3/4 Hot Lips - but not a jackhammer like the Sisson P-20. mart3.jpg

Poe's makes a bait called the Competition Cedars 4500 LR that is also killer, and easily breaks 20'. This bait has a very smooth, tight rolling action (DD22ish).
