Fenwick Eagle GT rod 6'6" Medium-ModerateQuite a bit more info would be needed about where you plan to fish before a specific lure can be suggested. (Depth, water color, Your rod/reel setup, water temp, ect)
What is a squarebill crank?Shad and bluegill for clear water, firetiger, clown for stained. Match the diving depth to the depth your fishing, rip it through the tops of weeds, load the rod, keep reeling and be ready for a strike when it breaks free. Get some squarebill cranks. Get some craw colored cranks. Bang them off rocks.
I have been doing this, still no luck on these types of lures. Going out tomorrow to try again.You can't go wrong with xraps. Get some in different sizes and various colors. One of the best ways to learn is trial and error. You can't go wrong just starting out with a constant retrieve. Try fast, slow and everything in between. Then try a twitch every so often while you retrieve. Then try stopping the lure and letting it suspend for a couple seconds, and then reel again. Try incorporating these techniques as well. See where this is going. There are all sorts of techniques to use. Don't let it intimidate you though. Sometimes the overwhelming amount of info can prevent you from realizing what's really important- just get out there and give it a shot. People like to complicate things, often unnecessarily.
