Spro Little John's

A few points that make this one of the top crank baits in my opinion:

-All of mine have “ran true” out of the box (no adjustments needed to make it swim straight). They run pretty close to the advertised depths depending on your line selection.
-Durable (alongside numerous bass several pike and musky have been hooked on this small little crank. They held up really well with just a few paint flakes coming off)
-Colour selections are great, other versions offered to cover the water column as well.

This is my go to bait when it comes to pulling out a crank. It's a flat out fish catcher. On my local waters (St. Clair, Erie) "spooky nasty shad" and "Clear Chartreuse" are the ticket colours. Whether you are bumping the bait into cover or just casting and retrieving in open water this lure will attract fish.

The price could probably be lower.... But it's still cheaper than the "high end" cranks which get left in the dust when this little john gets tied onto my line.
