Default My fav freshwater lure.

Below is one of my favorite lg mouth bass lures. I'm going to try my luck on striped bass with it. Last year my friend used a lot of freshwater lures for saltwater. So I said ok I will try my luck.

This lure has a lot of action:


Anyone else use one of these sinking/diving lures? I forgot the real name for it, but as you reel in it dives, and when you stop it comes to the surface. What's your favorite lure for fresh, and have you used it for striped bass?

I posted my other favorite freshwater lures on my site. I will try all of these on the striped bass this season :)

All my favorite.

Thats a crankbait. Unfortunately for me, I cannot run alot of them in the freshwater spots I fish, either too shallow and/or too much structure. As far as Striped Bass go, i wouldnt even bother with a crankbait. in saying that, I am referring to the amount of snags you will more than likely run into trying to run a crankbait. Plus, I dont think I have ever even seen a crankbait built for the salt lol. Using a freshwater crankbait for Stripers in the salt will quickly rust the hooks.

10-4 Jonny :)

This "crankbait" worked tonight. I got one schoolie off it. 3 others using plastics. I didn't think about the freshwater setup/hooks, and such. Thanks for the information.

Yeah, depending on its "lip" and how deep it dives, you can run one without snagging. But I wouldnt dare run one across the mussle beds in tha maaaahsh ;)

P.S. There are larger crankbait "style" plugs out there for the salt, mostly used for trolling. Big lips for deep divin'. Good Tuna plugs too.

Sometimes crankbaits are the only way to go. A couple of weeks ago there were 5 people throwing bucktails and they hadn't caught a thing. I threw on a Storm Bigmac and caught 3 fish in 15 minutes. Then some other guys switched and after it was all said and done Crankbaits-15 Stripers and Bucktails- NADA lol. I felt bad for those poor guys without crankbaits.
