We also have more luck with jigs than cranks. I mostly just use a crank for a search bait and then switch to the good old basic jig-n-worm or jig-grub. I have also used tubes on a jig with a worm for a little variation and attraction.AtticaFish said:Thanks guys. Sure is nice to put a few of these away before the ice sets in. I do usually carry one rod rigged with a Huskyjerk or X-rap. Stick cranks are the favorite for most guys around here, but i don't have as much luck with them as i do the grubs and jigs.
