So far this has been the year of the Ima Pinjack for me. This crank bait has been fantastic for fooling the shallow bass that are making their way to the spawning sites. For being a small profile bait it casts a long distance. I find it runs true whether I throw it in the trees or grind it into the rocks. I haven’t had a soft bite on it yet. When fish choose to bite this bait they flat out crush it. I have been throwing it on 12 pound Trilene fluorocarbon and the bait gets down to about 8 feet deep.
Recently I have really been having a lot of success throwing the bluegill color but when the water got dirtier the Hot Craw and the Chartreuse sexy shad have been producing more fish. I haven’t been known in the past as a big cranker but so far it has been my go to search bait on the Motherlode lakes. Get yourself a handful of colors and start launching them at your favorite lake.
Hold on and SET THE HOOK!
