Anyone can throw a crankbait but do you know how to pick the right baits, colors, or how to use it to trigger bites? Today Matt is on Lake Fork, Texas and he’s explaining exactly what you need to know to be a better crankbait fisherman during the post spawn and Summer months.

Matt explains what different baits are used for, which colors produce the best results, and opens up his personal boxes and shows you the exact baits he brought with him on the cross-country trip.
