Josh and I fished Canyon 2:30 - 5:45. It was tough this afternoon as we boated 3 smallies on cranks and T-Rig. We also saw Tadmo picking up smallies on crank. Water temp was 57 degrees. Water was too glassy.
I'm partial to Bandit cranks because they catch fish. Smallies love 'em. They also come standard with triple grips hooks - the best hooks there is for cranks, IMO. If you can get hold of the print edition of AZOD magazine (2 issues ago) Conquistador has a great article on smallie fishing with cranks there.
