Crawlers

Crawlers excel when exploring for fish in large expanses of shanow water. They work best with asteady, moderately fast retrieve, enabling you to cover a lot of area quickly.

Many largemouth bass. fishermen rate crawlers among the best lures for night fishing. The continuous plopping sound makes it easy to monitor the lure's location. And with a steady retrieve, the line stays taut so yon can detect strikes. Crawlers also work wen for northem pike, pickerel and muskies.

Models with a face-plate will swim through sparse weeds without fouling. But hinged-arm models tend to conect bits of weeds or algae at the arm joints.

The speed at which you retrieve a crawler is critical. Too fast, and the plug win skim the surface with little action. Too slow, and it will not produce the gurgling sound. The best speed is that which produces the most pronounced wobble and the loudest gurgle.

If fish do not strike with a steady retrieve, try adding an occasional pause and twitch. Or, stop reeling periodically and let the ripples subside.
