Most pro anglers have two versions of identical, productive crankbaits on hand for every tournament -- one that rattles and one that's silent. Why? Because after whacking a few fish from a school and the action slows down, these guys know that they can pick up a few more by switching to the silent version of the same bait. Silent crankbaits also are the preferred style in gin-clear water, especially if its experienced heavy fishing pressure. The Fat Free Shad has been recognized as the leader in the crankbait industry for more than a decade and it's still going strong.
