Balsa Myths

27 posts in this topic

Heck Bob... if you made it I would probably love it. Shallow running baits are a different beast to me. I mainly make deep diving crankbaits. I just like that type of fishing. Most of my shallow running crankbaits rise a lot faster than my deeper running plugs. Basically for the reasons Bob stated. I usually fish shallow baits like a spinnerbait. I will throw it at anything and everything. It is a fun way to fish.

I think you have to build the shallow runners with the lightest ballast weight possible. A bait with a slow rise is going to be tough to fish thru heavy cover. I want my shallow runners to pop up like a cork but have enough weight to remain stable, it's a fine line to walk.
