I had a couple days in early ledge fishing season where they really chewed on a deep diving crankbait. Those are the days you get to cycle through all the new baits and see what the fish really prefer from spot to spot and hour to hour. Sometimes you could use the Dredger as a clean-up bait. Where after they quit biting a certain crankbait or a color, you could pick up the Dredger and get a few more fish. But I also found, especially with the little 17.5 Dredger, I would get bites in quick succession off a spot when I first pulled in and got the school biting.
