Lucky Craft's new Fat CB is a non-rattle bait with our "air floating concept". Thanks to optimized buoyancy made possible through the use of an intricate internal structure, this plastic crankbait behaves like a balsa wood lure and delivers outstanding obstacle deflection. The lip design and hook positions are specifically designed to come through the thickest of cover. Also, the weight of this lure is intentionally fixed for quick recovery, after the bait hits an object to come back to the center of the retrieve. In addition, the Fat CB is crafted larger, creating a wide wobble and rolling action to attract fish in a wide spread area.
The BDS 3 and 4 are both 3 inches in length, but the BDS 3 is thinner and has a narrower bill.
According to Gerald Swindle, the thinner profile of the BDS 3 allows the bait to run deeper than most other fat-bodied, wide-wobbling baits. He fishes the BDS 3 on a 7-foot medium-action rod with 12- to 20-pound test line, depending on the cover he is fishing and the depth he wants the lure to run.
“The 5-foot mark has traditionally been the deepest limit of the wobbler-style crankbaits,” Swindle says. “But on 15-pound line, a BDS 3 will get down into the 6-foot range. That’s critical when the primary cover is in that 5- to 6-foot zone.”
Swindle’s preferred terrain for the BDS 3 is riprap and grass.
“Most riprap banks are on a 45-degree angle and a BDS 3 hugs the rocks better, making solid contact with those key boulders down in the 5 to 6 foot range,” he notes.
“Also, since a BDS 3 runs a little deeper, it’s become one of my favorite baits for cranking grass in the early spring,” he says. “When everyone else is throwing Rat-L-Traps over grass, I’ll crank a BDS 3 down and wobble it over 5- to 6-foot grass for a different presentation.”
