Crank Baits seem to be real popular in SW Ohio. I never cared much for ones that dove deeper than 3 or 4 feet because after that I could never be sure what depth they were running and if I was using a stop and go retrieve how the floaters, which most of them are, could look natural if they started to rise when they stopped. So if your using a Shad-Rap that dives from 7' - 15' I guess if you crank slower you'll be closer to 7' and faster closer to 15' but if you had some stumps at 11' how would you keep it just above them? And would I be right in assuming cranks are made for a steady retrieve? Thanks! PS...I don't mind sounding stupid!
