SPRO® Little John Crankbait
Built to run at three to five feet deep, SPRO's tournament-proven Little John Crankbait features a unique lip made from a computer chip board. The computer chip board lip creates more feel and is more durable than traditional plastics lips. The Little John is great for targeting suspended bass and the silent weight transfer system which uses soft tungsten translates into incredibly long casts for a small crankbait, even in windy conditions. Complete with sharp Gamakatsu® treble hooks, the Little John is sure to become one of the most effective crankbaits in the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nmigliore Great product Took it to a local pond and it worked very well! Very easy to fish, just cast it out and reel it back on a medium-fast retrieve (though you can change speeds to see what the bass like). Catches weeds they easy to remove after each cast and the big bass make it worth it! Great crankbait! June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wylieboy Spro Little John CB Great consistent action and feel moving through the water, and while bouncing of the bottom maintaining a balanced wobble. "Cell Mate" color mimics a bar fish, so great for Texas lakes. First time I saw the Spro Little John was while taking a fishing buddy to Lake Tawakoni pre fishing for a tournament, and proceeded to catch Hybrids up to 5 pounds, countless sand bass, catfish, and topped the day off with a 7 pound largemouth of a secondary point. I bought three after that trip! May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by leftty Little Buddy It is crazy how many big fish i have caught on this little bait . The color selection is off the chart and my two faverite are Spookey Shad and Chartruse Black Back. My little buddy stays on the deck from March to November . Be sure to give it a test drive during the shad spawn , thats when it really shines. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by SkeeterBug Top Producer hands down! I don't ever leave the dock without a Little John and Little John MD in Cellmate and/or Nasty Shad tied on! My most consistent producer...Period! March 29, 2013

A:I fish the square bill in brush, shallow rocks etc. The deep divers I use on rocky points submerged brush piles. River systems I like it around the sand bars and crank it from the shallows into holes, drop offs etc.
Your going to lose some no question so have several for back ups. This is my best go too crank bait.
A:My best results have come by cranking the little john in deep brush piles,points,or channel swings
A:I had luck with the bleeding tennesee shad (03) color. It works good in clear water with the sun in the sky since its very reflective, it also has some red spots and red is known to attract bass more then most other colors. In dark water any bright reds or oranges would do some good though. I have one that is red with black stripes going down the sides and i use it after it rains with better luck then the tennesee shad i talked about earlier.

A:It depends on water clarity and the bait fish the fish are targeting. In muddy water I like the dark colors (blood craw,). In stain water (citrus shad, firetiger and chart black back). I clear water if fish are eating blugills (spooky shad and old glory) If they are eating shad (spooky nasty and nasty shad) I don't believe one color can get bit all the time.
