Tuning crankbaits, especially deep diving cranks, is extremely important. Some crankbaits, such as Rapalas, come tuned right out of the package while others need to be tuned every time they go into the water. Tuning your baits will allow them to run straight rather than kicking out to the right or left. Without tuning your crankbait, your bait may not be running at the depth that it should be. In this week’s show, we will tell you how to tune your baits as well as share a few extra tips for when you are trolling.

We briefly touch on a few of these methods, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
An article that Jeff posted earlier this year regarding suspending crawler harnesses also discusses many of these methods. You can read that article here.
