I have been having a lot of luck with crankbaits lately but it seems that I also loose about as much as I catch too. I have never experienced this much fish break off with any other bait. I have even bought bigger treble hooks including triple grip trebles to replace the ones that comes with the baits too and still the same results. What else can I do besides try getting bigger hooks? The baits came standard with #4 trebles so I changed them to #2 trebles. I am tempted to try #1 trebles. It seems the basses are not slamming the crankbaits like they normally do. They seem to just suck the bait and turn. I would cast the bait out and reel it in straight and continuously until I feel a little resistance and then "try" to slam the hooks in. Half of the time when I have the bass half way in the bait will pop loose from the fish. It does this whether I am using braided line or mono.
