Each bait in Strike King's line of Strike King® Pro-Model® Crankbaits is designed to perform a specific task and their Series 5s are the go-to crank for many tournament-proven pros. Designed to dive deep, the medium-sized Pro-Model Series 5 cranks have a 2° diving plate to allow for longer casts and deeper dives. Featuring free-floating rattles and lifelike 3-D eyes, these medium wobblers will out fish other crankbaits.
My first time out I caught a 2.5 lb smallmouth. I will always have one tied on. I like the chartruese sexy shad color and have had good luck with it. but the hooks could be better

Overall a great crankbait. I've used several different brands but really love the Strike King. Great quality and colors to choose from at a reasonable price which makes it easier to throw into the areas where Harvey Wallbanger lives. You don't have to worry about losing $15 to $20 if something happens. Run pretty true out of the package, but you'll probably have to tune it out just a little which is really easy.

I just recently purchased this bait and fished a local tournament this past weekend. I was able to land 14lbs. with this bait alone. The action was great right out of the box.

Worked right out of the box
Bought several of these in various colors. Tied one on to fish a club tournament yesterday morning and caught a nice 4.65# largemouth on it. I'm pretty hard on my cranks, so it did get a little beat up and one of the eyes come off, not a big deal. Overall I'm happy. Ordered several more in series 4, 5, and 6. I refuse to pay $16.00 for the Lucky Craft. Would rather pay less, get more baits, then replace when needed.

Trick is to bounce it off of structure, or dig into the substrate to help trigger strikes. Easy technique that will help keep you from getting hung up is to stop reeling once you hit something. This causes the lure to float up and typically away from the stump, limb, rock, etc. Get a lot of strikes on the stop and especially once you begin cranking again.
For me, there is no wrong or right way to fish this. First make sure the depth is correct for this lure. If it is, I fish methodically and experiment with my retrieve. Fan cast this bait and use a fast retrieve. No bites? Do it again but with long or short pulls, reel in the slack line and pull again. (I find bass will hit this retrieve on the pause when the lure stops and starts to float up backwards) If this fails, try a slow retrieve like the ones above. If still haven't been brutely bashed by a bass, you may have to change colors or your depth. Patience my friend...when it comes together, it will be worth the experiment, enjoy!
First off use a 7 foot or 7 foot plus rod with a medium action with 12 lb fluorocarbon for longer casts,deeper running depth for your crankbait and more sensitivity, but ten pound test will work. Sexy shad and green gizzard shad are about the best colors to imitate shad of any kind. Sexy Shad works about anywhere you throw it, I don't have shad down here in Miami and they jump ALL over it, in fact i caught 5 on it yesterday on submerged grass beds.
