There's nothing sneaky about the way these cranks 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 200 series crankbaits scream for attention and are very productive along outside drop-offs or where clear water forces fish deep. Producing an extra-wide wobble and offering a loud, fish-attracting rattle, these Bandit crankbaits really bring the strikes home!
great for bass or crappie
fishing at sardis and catching a few when the fisherman next to me said use a Bandit 200 series pearl with chartruse.. next time caught limit of bass and all the white bass I wanted. good quality bait.

Bandits are best
The Bandit crank bait is one of the best baits I have ever used. Unfortunately, the colors I like the best are always the ones they discontinue. But they are still an excellent bait for many different kinds of fish; bass, walleye, crappie, bluegills. I like the 200s the best, then the 300 series. Cast 'em and crank em moderate to slow

Personally I don't think color matters as much to the fish as it does to the fisherman. General rule is the darker the color water the darker the color you should use. Chartreuse is always a good choice in my opinion. Good luck
alternate between stopping whenever you bump into something, stopping once of twice in each retrieve, and a slight jerk once or twice in between retrieves. The stopping and jerking and slight bump excites fish and over half of my bites on crankbaits come during or right after i do these.
When at rest the Bandit lures all float up slowly, like Speed Traps these lures can be fished with a stop and go retrieve. Because they float up you can fish them right over grass or submerged wood and pause them in key ambush areas allowing the lure to hold for a second or two longer in strike zones in an effort to force feed them to fish. Search online you might fine a video or two on using this bait.
These Bandits are the workhorses of my crankbait collection. Awesome. As far as boxes, I have been using the FTO series ( used to be Falcon ) Plano. These boxes are not cheep but they are built well, they keep your crankbaits untangled and easy to see and grab. The boxes are also thinner ( so you can store more boxes ) and they really are secure when you close them. The bandits 100's and 200's fit nicely in the small or medium size FTO. Hope this helps
You can go to the Bandit website to see what the current available colors are. Discontinued colors are still available but hard to find. Shop the smaller bait stores or look online using "Bandit Bait (color)'. as of mid 2014, "Mistake" and "Chartreuse/Black Stripe" have the lines of Bumble Bee but the colors are different. I still find Bumble Bee in the stores.
