What is more effective in clear or stained water. Flat sided crankbaits or traditional shaped baits. All baits in balsa wood. The reason I'm asking is because I will be trying to fish balsa wood crankbaits in a lake dominated in spotted bass. I would like to fish a zone between 5 and 15 feet. I will not be making the baits, just the assembly process to finish. I just trying to crack the code on the lake I fish. About 99% of the angler fish spinnerbait and rip baits. So my goal is to find some thing to trigger the big spots to hit. Thanks

I give up predicting if bass prefer a flat or a round crankbait on a given day but usually start with a flat sided tight action bait because I feel that most days, most lakes, it will get more bites. Especially in spring and fall but don't discount them year round. That's not rigorous analysis based on hard data - just one guy's opinion based on personal expeience.

the only thing you can predict about bass fishing is its going to change as soon as you figure it out :-D
