Sinking crankbaits

Sinking crankbaits

As you may expect the crankbaits on this page will all sink. This means that they will sink immediatly after hitting the water, but also that they will further sink if you stop reeling them in. Sinking crankbaits are often heavier than floating crankbaits and this gives you the opportunity to cast them futher. An even bigger advantage is that they will remain their action better than floating crankbaits in waters with a current like rivers or the sea. Sinking crankbaits are therefore often used for large waters. Sinking crankbaits will dive often at least 3 meters deep, but also for these lures there are exceptions.

How do you see the difference between shallow and deep diving lures?
The diving charateristic of a lure depends on multiple factors, but one factor is easy to see. This is also the most important diving characterstic of a lure, it is the blade on the front (sometimes called the lip of the lure). The more horizontal it stands on the head of lure, the deeper it will dive. A lure with a blade which almost stands 90 degrees from the head will not dive deep. Also, the bigger size of the blade, the deeper it will go. But please note, this is something you will see quickly but there are more factors which affect diving. Read more about it here.

Want to start fishing with crankbaits at the sea? Than you cannot get around the sinking lures. The floating crankbaits will really have difficulties diving and keep their action.
