Bass Fishing Tactics and Techniques

Tiny Crankbaits – During Cold Fronts

When fishing cold front conditions or highly pressured bodies of water, try fishing small ¼ or 1/8 ounce crankbaits. There are several companies that produce crankbaits designed for crappie or bluegill, but these little gems can be the ticket for catching large numbers of bass when nothing else is working. The only modification I make is upsizing hooks to get better hookups. But don’t be fooled into thinking these little baits are for small fish, the big ones seem to like them as well. With a spin cast outfit and 6 lb line, these little baits cast extremely well.
