There's nothing sneaky about the way these Bandit® Crankbaits catch fish! Bandit lures always run true right out of the box, and have the ability to steal you a tournament win anytime. Bandit's 100 series crankbaits scream for attention, with an extra-wide wobble and a loud rattle that really brings the strikes home! Dives 2' - 5'. Weight: 1/4 oz. Length: 2''. Hook size 6.
Go to crank bait
I have tons of bandits, they are by far my preferred crankbait. I usually troll the 200 series with a 100 on one of the lines to cover more of the water column. Have landed lots of Strippers and Walleye on these.

Excellent Shallow Water Crankbait
Excellent crankbait for fishing around laydowns and lily pads. When fished correctly, this crankbait can crawl through laydowns and stumps without getting snagged.

Great lttle plug
Been trying to catch fish above weed beds with minimal success. Tried the Bandit 100 series and caught multiple species including walleye,perch, smallmouth, largemouth and even rock bass. The bluegill pattern seemed to work best. The rattles pulled the fish up from the weeds.

I bought this lure a couple months ago and have been extremely impressed! This is my go to lure in any situation. I have caught fish in several ponds, a couple lakes, and in the TN river, it never seems to fail me. When i first bought it i took it to a pond on my familys property were i used to catch around 5 fish on a good day, but with the Bandit i landed 17 largemouths and one around 3 pounds. The one i have so much success with is the Rootbeer Chartreuse but my buddy has the baby bass and several more that have caught their fair share of fish as well. These lures are costly but i will pay the extra $$$ anytime for another one.

I fish mine on 12lb test. I fish a lot of tournaments and fish a lot of rock thats hard on line. Yes it hurts the depth a little but I dont lose fish. I always use a bait caster the model I use is the KVD black reel.
I do it with a medium light crankin stick that is 7 feet 10 inches long, light line ( 8 pound flourocarbon ), and a good reel with a lot of experimentation with the spool cast settings and magnetic/centrifugal weight backlash controls. Works best with fresh Hot Sauce on the spool bearings. That will do it equipment-wise, but your biggest enemy and variable out of your control will be the wind !
When fishing that lure i found that if it looks like an easy meal the bass will take it. It doesn't matter what kind of fish it is they take every oppertunity at every fish that they think will be an easy meal!
Okay, I will say that in the right colors this will work super when the crappie are in tight or up in spawning areas . But when they are in these areas they will hit almost anything that gets close to them . Invest in 200's for the times when they are deeper in crappie colors . In shallow go smaller cranks or small spinners or jigs . cheaper and more colors to experiment with for less money . I usually use tubes in shallow with spinner ( roadrunner head or beetle spin spinner ) or no spinner . When they are fired up the 3/8 oz. single spinner H&H spinners are super . I do love to use these 100's for bassin and they are great producers for me . Good 200 series colors are pink,white with splatterback , silver with black back , silver with blue back , white . Good luck and tight lines .
match the hatch...meaning find a lure that does a good job appearing to be similar in appearance to what the fishing are feeding off. Frog color, shad pattern, bluegill color, crayfish pattern, goby colors, etc. Hopefully that helps but a natural color is best sometimes especially in clear water. If the water is muddy try fishing something in a white color with a glitter to it. Clear water alot of colors work except I dislike dark colors, maybe green, a lighter shade or a red orange flake type of pattern. Make the best choice on these specifics. Good luck.
