Guide Review - The Spro Little John DD Crankbait Is Designed To Run To 20 Feet Deep

I fished a Spro Little John DD Crankbait at Lake Sinclair in club tournament and it preformed well. It cast easily and did not "windmill" and quickly dove to 18 to 20 feet deep. It stayed at depth until near the boat.

I was throwing it on eight pound fluorocarbon line, a seven foot cranking rod and a low gear ration reel.

On a very tough day I hooked two keepers on this bait. One jumped and threw the bait, always a problem with big crankbaits. I landed the second on, one of only two keepers I landed in eight hours of trying.

The colors of the Spro Little John DD Crankbait are varied and will match any conditions.The colors are sharp and the paint holds up well. The Gamakatsu hooks are sharp and do a good job.

I am pleased with the Spro DD Little John Crankbait and will use it often.
