Crankbait lip question....

4 posts in this topic

Ok guys I have been lurking here for a little while and finally registered so I could ask a question. I have built a couple of poppers and am happy with those so far. Now I want to venture into making crankbaits. I want to know how you guys decide on what angle and length you need to get a certain depth your looking for in a crank? Is there a magic formula or is it just experience?

Thanks in advance.

Just have a look at commercial cranks.

You'll see that the longer and straighter the lip (esp. with tow-eye on lip), the deeper it goes. And vica versa, the steeper, and shorter the lip, the shallower your lure comes. I think no formula, just try and error, or copy some tried-and-true bait.

Have a nice weekend!

Jamie,

That's the schematic that got me going as well.

It really helped me with my first and took a lot of guess work out of it. Taught me some things as well.

Good luck NSpannTx
