Hey Ed,

You can't go wrong with natural colored Rapalas like perch, rainbow trout, shad etc. However, many of the other colors will also catch smb. Colors like orange, blue, firetiger, etc. also work well most times.

As for size, I tend to use the bigger ones since i am targeting the larger fish. ;) The jointed rapalas have a more erratic action and will work well when the fish are very active/agressive. I like the larger sized husky jerks and deep diving cranks when fishing early spring and late fall when the water temps are colder.

Keep your eyes open for some new crank baits from Lunkerhunt this upcoming season. ;)

I bought 48 of them on ebay for $150. 3 of us split the cost and we all ended up with a decent selection. There are guys who run stores and liquidate stock that isnt selling. Easy way to build up your collection!

Ebay is a great place to buy fishing supplies. I can usually find prices even with shipping that are lower than most online shops, even the US ones.

If you've never tried one I highly recommend the Rapala Taildancer. I caught smallies all year long on a couple different colours, then kept using them for stripers on Grand in the fall.
