CRANK IT UP

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TRICKS -

One of the most fun ways of catch­ing preda­tors, and a very easy way of start­ing out, is fish­ing small crankbaits. These small plas­tic-lipped lures dive on the re­trieve to a pre­de­ter­mined depth, so as long as you choose the right model you can fish any­where from the sur­face down to 15ft. The most use­ful are mod­els that get down to about 5ft. These will work well on rivers, canals and lakes.

When tar­get­ing perch, use crankbaits with a very fast wig­gle ac­tion. Choose mod­els around 5cm-7cm long, and go for mainly bright colours. Chartreuse green, white and bronze are my favourites.
