Crankbaits are some of the most versatile weapons anglers have at their disposal. Their ability to win bass tournaments, pull walleye off structure, and dupe inshore saltwater species cannot be denied. While crankbaits are all generally the same in principle, their lips, rattles, weights, body materials and color patterns can be tweaked in a variety of ways that make them ideal for many different conditions. Each year, the market is flooded with a new generation of crankbaits. Some prove themselves worthy, and others are forgotten at the bottom of the tackle box. So I sifted through the new models for this year to find 10 standouts. Here they are.
