Strike King Pro-Model 1, 1XS & 3 Series Crankbaits
Strike King HC1XS crankbaits
For fishing skinny water, this bait is a must. I started out fishing the Mann's 1- lure, but then switched to this one and have not went back. The chartreuse/blue back and the chartreuse/white are always tied on, and has been responsible for catching fish on small ponds and tournaments on my "home lake" of 500 acres. It is durable and runs true right out of the package. You will not regret buying this lure.

Another Must Have Lure!
I have a ton of Strike King lures. They all work when you properly match up lure types and colors to water conditions and prey in the water. I've caught most of the Bass species, Long Nosed Gar, Channel Cats and Suckers on these. These lures will draw a strike either out of a predator-prey reaction or out of a territorial/curiosity hit. Never had an issue with these, I have a whole box filled with them.

Staple Crank Choice
I think the Strike King series 3 ranks with the Bandit 200 and the Storm Wart as a lure bass hunters can count on to get a few good bass to step up even when they didn't want to leave that secure laydown or big boulder. The new colors like Chart. Perch, Neon Gill, or Yellow Perch are eye catching not only for fishermen.
I like the way it bumps along the rocks in 3-4ft. of water with very few hangups and its busy "hunting" action. It's a classic. So, go ahead, add your favorite story about the one that DIDN'T get away from this "go-to" crank. I just picked up another nice, but reluctant bass today that just couldn't resist my old chart. series 3.

Catches more fish
I have used the Strike King Series 3 crankbaits for several years and have caught more fish on them than any other baits by far. I recommend then to everyone who like to fish. Bass seem to like the size and color of the bait as well as the shape.
