    Arkie cranks! They are pretty cheap on grizzly jig... depends on your water on what colors

    I had real good luck yesterday with crankbaits from Walmart, I was like you and didn't want to put a whole lot of money into it to start with, so I bought the 2 dollar ones from Walmart in several different colors, and caught around 20 yesterday on them, 14 keepers

    About all I do down here in NC is pull cranks for crappie. I usually pull bandits, but bass pro has very nice cranks just a little bigger for usually under $2. They dive about the same as the bandit 300s. I have a few arkies, but like my bandits. I always have pink, black, orange and silver on they try a few others like yellow, white, etc. Pink and black are my two top performers with orange coming in a close third. If I start hitting the white perch or white bass, silver tops the others. The cats that always seem to hit prefer the orange for some reason. Good luck, I love it. By the way if you get the bug, there is not budget cranking. I bet I have 120 cranks and still sometimes don't seem to have what I need. lol.

    I tried looking up that Northwoods place but couldn't find it. They have a web site? I've got a few crank baits but haven't used them yet. Mostly smaller one's for bass but found some really small one's in Wal Mart for under two bucks. Got to try trolling, never done it for anything.

    Go get some of these. Blue chrome, black chrome, anything with chartruse, crawfish colors. Shipping kinda slow but worth the wait. Good baits and same blanks most custom painters are painting.

    Understand that they have so much stuff here they cannot possibly list it all. All you have to do is shoot them a call and they will get you a price. Trust me when I tell you they have every flicker shad and minnow made.
    They also carry Millenium products cheaper than you can purchase direct from them. $80 dollar line counter reels for 50 bucks, trolling rods for 8 bucks. This place buys in bulk. And by bulk, it isn't like your local store that gets 100 of them and has a sale. They have more products than the manufacturers normally do.

    The least expensive website is below. The crankbait most used is the C55, which resembles the larger Bandits. For painted ones they get $1.89 a piece. I have heard that the hooks supplied are not of the highest quality, but they are adequate though.

    You can also get them unpainted - UPC255 - you will have to get split-rings and treble hooks which they also sell. You will have to go to the website off and on as they sell out of some colors. If you really get into cranking you can get an inexpensive air-brush and compressor and roll your own.
