From the looks of the leftovers, I think most TBHers agree on this^^^ I know I do.

That's only because you ate the wrong ones. Not as hot as last year bcause they didn't get to stay in the stashbox long enough....supply and demand.

You pitch washers...I make hot crawfish.

More kick sounds great, but they were still good.

And amazingly enough, that is how I buy them most of the time!!

If you are serious about fishing a crankbait depth account of the advantages of using a snap to attach the cable to the line. It gives you an advantage not only of being able to change quickly and without retying plugs every time, but also gives your bait to another turning point for greater recovery maneuver.
A common concern for people with a crankbait is going to hang. It will hang, so it is advisable to use heavy enough line to make sure that you will be able to get most of their lures loose. As I said the more you use a crank, the more you feel and the more often you "feel" their way through brush to recover.
Unless you have a friend in the factory you may have noticed that I have described the decoys are not free. So you may want to invest in buying a lure retriever. Will not take long for these jewels to pay for themselves in reducing lost baits. Most tackle shops have multiple versions or you can build a lead of a salt water and a couple of dog collar loose chains hanging from the head. These often ill hook the plug if the cord does not touch the bait loose in the fall. Either way, you are usually back in business.
Deep cranks are as versatile as most commonly used baits in shallow water. If you have not used as part of their arsenal then get at least one rod suitable for this type of fishing and set aside a point in every trip to gain confidence in the art. Note, that can grow on you as you realize the potential and versatility.
