Question About Weight And Depth

6 posts in this topic

This may be a stupid question...but here goes. Here in north Louisiana we don't have very deep lakes. So I was wondering what would be the maximum depth (if any) for a 5/8 oz. lipless crank. Thanks.

as a lipless bait (like a rattle trap type) you can fish it at any depth becouse its a sinking type lure that sink about 1 foot a second so you can count it down to the depth you want to fish counting ...1...2,,,3,,,4.. ect to get it down 4 feet or deeper if you count longer.

hope this helps you out

Kris, you can use a lipless crankbait in any depth water but they work best down to around 7-8 ft. The depth they run depends on how fast you retrieve them, their weight, and the size line you use to throw them. 1/2 or 5/8 oz are the "standard" size baits. If you are looking for "shallow", Cordell Super Spots tend to run a little shallower than Rattletraps - but nowadays, just about every lure company has a version of lipless crankbait. The Strike King Red Eye Shad version has become popular lately after KVD used one to win a recent Bassmaster Classic - in shallow water.

and in most cases the faster you reel the better the fish like them :D

So, if you want to burn them, but have them stay down, you need a heavier lure.

Only experimentation will tell you what works best for your needs.
