Luhr Jensen Speed Trap Crankbaits - $5.89

Shallow running crankbaits will always be fish catchers. The Speed Traps are one of the most exciting baits you can throw when the crank bite is on. These baits are available in 1/4 and 1/8-ounce sizes for any situation you can imagine. These baits also come in an incredible range of colors. Don't let the light weights fool you, these are full-sized crankbaits that will look like a meal to hungry bass lurking in shallow cover for food. Use these cranks when you are fishing any shallow water; right on the bank, over flats, over submerged grass, or over brush and stumps. Unlike lipless crankbaits that are also effective in these situations, these baits float when you stop them. This enables you to use them in a stop-and-go retrieve and not have them drop into grass or sticks where they'll hang up. As their name implies, you can crank these baits as fast as you want and they'll run straight and true every time. The 1/8-ounce models run a little shallower than the 1/4-ounce size for really skinny water, but both baits have the colors, the noise, and the action to put fish in the boat when the shallow bite is on.

Upgrade Your Treble Hooks!

Comments: I have recently discovered the Speed Trap. While the split rings and hooks are a little light for my particular use, the Firetiger Speed Trap is deadly on Coho Salmon in the coastal streams and lakes here in Oregon. Right now it is out catching everything else in my arsenal, including Herring in tidewater. Fun stuff!!

Comments: the speed trap has always been one of my most successful crankbaits in the spring and fall. The company needs to go back to the old color schemes of lemonade, chartreuse/brown craw, and summer mud craw. There doesn't seem to be any design changes, but I don't catch as many fish as I use to on the new color schemes. I am not giving a bad report, but some things weren't meant to be changed.

Comments: Been around forever, for good reason. They are FIRE. Bill is fragile, do not slap your bait on the water to clear it. Change those hooks.

Comments: My 10 year old daughter bought me a Speed Trap for my birthday last year.  I really don't fish crankbaits at all, but of course I had to keep it in my gear so she could see that I liked it, etc.  Wasn't getting a largemouth bite on any of my go to baits, so I pulled out the Speed Trap for kicks.  DOMINATED largemouth for the next hour - had a 25 pound stringer easy.  A fat 6 pounder, a couple of 5's, several 4's and 3's.  A couple of days later, I nailed a 19lb flathead catfish - unbelievable.  Search on Youtube for 19lb flathead catfish Tempe, AZ.  Ordered a bunch in different colors, and I've been killing it.  Amazing bait.

Comments: Im a cranker and don't suffer fools when it comes bait choice. The speed trap is an awesome choice for fishing Largemouth in muddy water or algea blooms. In fact it is my favorite plastic squarebill for stained water. I either change the hooks or sharpen them out of the box, and I have been known to change the snap with a 6th sense split ring when fishing around millfoil or pond moss. There are a lot of bad colors so stick to sexy shad and dont look back.

Comments: I love these crankabits.  In the spring when high pressure fronts come in and your crankbait bite dies I have always had good luck with these baits.  They are very subtle and have great action.  However, every bait I have owned has split and took on water.  I still throw them but I monitor the bait and check them.  I have actually lost fish and brought the bait back and the hook ring was gone because the two bait sides were beginning to seperate.

Comments: only squarebill youll ever need PERIOD! Bait is money

Comments: THE OG squarebill. Use the big one with wind and heavy cover, the lil guy will cover water for ya and finesse thru heavy cover.

From: Meatwad: Squarebillington

Comments: I use these all the time now...I used to never use crankbaits but now its all I use..within the first 10 casts I have a great size bass. I caught 3 six pounders 4 five and under bass and 1 nine pound bass with the lemonade color last week alone..I had a big one yesterday and my 8 pound line gave way and lost my speedtrap..I had other tackle but didn't even bother using it..this is the only brand I will go with now!

Comments: If you like fishing crankbaits you have to try a Speed Trap.  They track true at high speed.  Tackle Warehouse has the best color selection bar none !
