THREE THINGS:

 

No Wonder. Perhaps it’s the eye-like spots, or the multitude of colors splashed across the Reef Runner “Wonderbread” paint scheme, but we do like the way it looks.  Walleyes do too, especially in fall as they gorge on flashy fish like smelt and other larger, colorful prey.

Clownin’ Around.  Red-headed with a yellow or golden body, clown-colored crankbaits are a bright-day staple for drawing the attention of fish.  Whether a jerkbait or popper for bass, or a shad-style diving crank for walleyes, these boisterous baits have their place in a Plano box.

People Eater. Purpledescent Shad Raps have long been a staple in our crankbait boxes.  While not quite the hue of the Minnesota Vikings, yet too bright to mimic a fathead minnow’s color scheme, they somehow trigger fish with their violet coloration that blends attractor and natural pattern all into one.

 

Stay Sharp!
