Hey guys I was wondering how often you guys thrown blades and cranks? I am trying to broaden my fishing horizons if you will and I very rarely fish cranks or blades. I fish plastics primaraly some jerk baits and top water but I honestly cant remember the last time I tied on blades.

Depending on where I am at - but most always I'll throw both.

I'll almost always start the day with a crank or lipless, then modify as needed. I really don't fish blades that often, as I don't have much confidence with them.

Bill Norman DD22 (deep)
Storm Wiggle Wart (mid range)
Strike King Redeye Shad (lipless)

With those three, you can pretty much cover the water column.

well i love to throw a spinner colorado leaf puts out a lot of vibration i try to throw along a weed line or top like at alamo i see at times it brings them out of tight cover to smash it i retrieve it fast buzz by them if no strike i do a slow roll thru the park some times they are ready to grab it or if there a little deep i pull drop pull drop watch your line they some times pick up on the fall good luck
