    I have attempted trolling for past few years this year I did ok on bandits and then tried salmo hornet the 9-12 ft divers I have got crappie bass Blue Gill and walleye. On lake Winnebago in Wisconsin they got walleye white bass and crappie. They are smaller then other crank baits with round fat body they go deep and price is good. Cabelas makes a similar type that is $1 cheaper too

    You need a variety of colors. What works one day, might not work next day. Water color changes, water temp changes, sun light or cloudy days, if fish are shallow or deep,,,all will make you try different colors as the fish will dictate what they want due to all the elements of your surroundings. Even different bodies of waters have their preferential colors. Get a bunch of colors. Name:  41A54D28-2933-424B-896E-A2CB9EC3F099.jpg

    Many years ago, started buying bandits, then Arkies when they became a sponsor and now PICO’s. I really like the PICO,s the best as they run alittle deeper than the bandits and arkies. But, more colors to choose from on the bandits and Arkies not that you need every color as I don’t have every color of the bandits and Arkies. The pic is just the 300 series of all 3. I have 4 other flats of 100 series Pico’s, 200 series of bandits also. Then don’t ask about all the other brands of crankbaits for bass, walleye that will work for crappies as well. �� I am crankbait poor.

    I use Slab sauce and there again, because the PICO’s are a dimpled body, I think the sauce stays on longer.

    Never tried the Pico's. But personally I like the bandits over the Arkie's for the lakes I fish.
