    bay fishing for ssb, the question is
    To rattle, or not to rattle, that is the question.
    Let's hear your opinion, sound off

    To Rattle, crankbaits are a reaction bite, its all about drawing attention to the crank bait and then getting them to eat it.

    You have to find what the fish want, i find if it's a slow bite or fish are pressured SILENCE as Achmed said and you will kill them.

    The wobble of a crankbait is just as important as the rattle. For slower, clearer, and colder water I use a flat sided squarebill or a rattletrap that has little no rattle . For water that has more movement and action, typically murkier as well, I use a rounded squarebill with alot of rattle. There is always a balance as well in situations where you have murkier water but its not necessarily more rapidly moving water, so I'd use a crank that has alot of woblle but not a lot of rattle, and vice versa. I could also use a crank that has a little wobble and alot of rattle if I'm fishing in a fast moving clear water stream and vice versa. It took me a while to figure out my favorite combinations but once I did I was getting some great results. Strike King Squarebill are a good place to start out with testing this out, I;d stick to 1.5 models, I've had alot of success with them.
