Bass Pro Shops XPS Lazer Eye Hardbaits - Deep Crank
Nice Crank Bait, Great Price
Bought these on sale just to try them out, I always "shop" for sales and thought I would give these a try. Caught 2 largemouth my first time out using them, one was almost 4 lbs. I'd say they work just fine, I got mine in the bluegill color. Try them out, mine ran true and the hooks were "sticky" sharp. The finish is good quality and should last a long time.

I have used these cranks for two years running on some tough fighting smallmouth bass. These baits perform very well. The only modification I make is changing the trebles out. That's just me though, I am very picky about having tough, sharp trebles. For regular fishing the factory trebles should do well, but for bull headed smallies, you should change them out.

Two weeks ago we were trolling fairly deep on Rainy Lake for Northern and I tied a phantom color one of these on. Hadn't had a whole lot of luck throughout the day but after only about 5 minutes with this, KABOOM, landed a 40 incher. The leader I was using wound up a bit kinked and the line was slightly frayed but I decided to send it back out anyway. 10 minutes or so later something else hit it and after battling it for a couple of minutes my line snapped so I never did get to see what or how big it was. Another hard lesson learned but I'll be buying more of these as we're heading back up again in early August.
