Most experienced crankbait bass fisherman will tell you that making bottom contact is essential to success with crankbaits MOST of the time. It turns baitfish imitating crankbaits into erratic bottom-dwelling critters than bass can’t resist.
In this “What it Looks Like,” we grind the bill of this Jenko CD25 Deep Diving Crankbait into a lake bottom littered with rocks and laydown trees. The bait’s steady built-in cadence becomes erratic and irregular, with the bait flushing, pausing and emitting different sounds as it combs the bottom. Few baits trigger reaction strikes like a crankbait being fish in this manner.
