Medium Diver Fall Cranking

LIST

Medium Diver Fall Cranking

When the fall transition begins, it’s a signal for fish to start moving shallow and feed. For Patrick Walters this means one thing, crankin’. Submerged grass can be tricky to fish with a crankbait, but changing line size and the rod you are able to have greater control of the running depth. If the crankbait is running too deep, it gets hung in the roots of the grass, if it's too shallow it goes over the top of the fish. In this situation, Patrick uses a Rapala DT 6, a crankbait that dives 6 feet deep. The grass line he is targeting is about 6 feet deep, growing 3 feet into the water column. To keep this 6 foot diving bait in the zone, Patrick upsizes his line size to 14lb and holds his rod at a 45° angle, keeping the bait running perfectly on the tips of the grass.
