Crank baits are a great way to catch crappie year round. I fish crappie tournaments in several states and we do pretty well. Won a couple, placed in the top ten several times and second in a classic. We use Rapala shad raps. Number 4 & 5's in what ever color the fish want. The few other teams that use crank baits seem to prefer Bandits. I prefer to use a eight pound test line and you will need to use swivel snaps or your line will twist. You will need at least a three foot spread between your lines or they will tangle on the turns. The fish we catch seem to be larger but like all methods it doesn't always work on a given day.
