Trolling for walleye with crankbaits

Crankbaits are awesome walleye lures, but rarely are these lures turned properly in the package. Instead crankbaits tend to run left or right of center causing the lure to have less diving ability and significantly reduced action. Crankbaits can be hand tuned by gently bending the eye tie molded into the lip of the lure using a pair of needle nose pliers. If the bait is running right of center, bend the eye tie to the left. If the bait is running left of center, bend the eye tie to the right. Trial and error is the only practical way to tune a crankbait. Once tuned, a crankbait becomes a walleye catching machine._DSC0067.jpg
