Norman Lures Professional Edge Baits - Fat Boy
One of the all-time great shallow-runners!!!
This crankbait will undoubtably go down as one of the greatest shallow-runners ever made. This lure deflects off structure with ease & if it does get snagged, it will easily sling-shot off cover. I recently caught a 4-pounder in a local club tournament on the Glow Perch pattern. Too bad I broke the bill off by casting at a cypress tree!!! I'll be buying another or 2.

Great for muddy/murky water
im used this lure especially effective in the chartreuse model in murky to muddy water. i run it fast in warmer spring through summer and warmer fall, and then slow it down in the cooler temperatures. i did not have as much success with it in clearer water, but thats probably because it has a hard wobble. i will try to thin norman crankbait in clearer water and right a review on that. but as for this lure, it takes bass like a pro. i actually caught both largemouth and smallmouth in a local river by me with this. i used both stop and go techniques as well as steady retreives. stop and go performed better in cooler water while ripping it over rocks and other structure worked better with warmer water.

my favorite heavy cover crank
i use the chartruese/black back model and i cast it into heavy cover. i start my retrieve by giving this bait two heavy jerks and letting the lure float to the surface before the retrieve. catches the hawgs in your pond

durable, productive crank
I have never been a crankbait fisherman until I purchased this bait. I have caught LMB, smallies, and pike with this crank. Very effective around rock banks, chunk rock, and wood cover. Very durable, well built! The only thing I did have to do was tune it alittle to get it to run straight. I use the bluegill pattern up here in NE PA.
