Deep Square Bill Crankbaits

Spread the love

With all the recent success and buzz about shallow-running square bill crankbaits, it was only a matter of time before anglers and companies started a trend on deep-running versions…

A couple of years ago, Luck “E” Strike Lures introduced the RCFreak after it’s development with legendary bass pro, Rick Clunn…

It’s no secret that Clunn likes fishing crankbaits, using them to help win in at least three major tournament victories over the years…

Listen to Rick talk about deep square bill crankbaits in this short video from the 2012 ICAST show…

These baits are continuing to gain in popularity as evidenced by a recent article in BASS Times…

I do have to question Rick’s claim about the RCFreak being the first deep square bill since Rapala had deeper version of their classic “Fat Rap” crank in their line years ago.

Rapala Fat Rap

Even though the deep Fat Rap has been phased out, it was very popular years ago but lost it’s prominence with the introduction of other baits following it…

The Fat Rap still remains a “go to” bait in my box to this very day!
