Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50

Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50

Slightly smaller than the original Spro Fat John, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 delivers a highly-specialized action that is made for tempting bass in shallow waters. Reaching a maximum depth of 2-feet, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 is built with a precisely angled, fiberglass bill that allows it to kick left and right with a wild hunting action, and then re-align and return to center. This action has been specifically formulated to imitate a fleeing baitfish making every possible attempt to evade pursuing predators. Effective on a steady or blistering-fast retrieve, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 is equipped with two sticky-sharp Gamakatsu treble hooks that ensure rock-solid hook sets. Offered in a number of custom colors, the Spro John Crews Baby Fat John 50 provides a one-of-a-kind hunting action that is great for fishing over the tops of grass or shallow flats.

Comments: Just tried it yesterday and the post-spawn bass could not stay away from it. Hooks are grab n' hold sharp and don't need to be changed unless you are after 7+ bass. My non-rattling Citrus Nasty does kick out regularly, mostly on a fast retrieve, less at slower speeds. Makes a great topwater, too. On one cast got an overrun and before I cleared it, one had already hooked itself. Hope SPRO adds some of the Little John colors.

Comments: This little baby is going to catch me a lot of fish this season. First time out, with water temps in the lower 50s, the BFJ got me some fish that I believe would not have hit anything else. I can actually feel the lure "kick out" on a steady, straight retrieve.  It goes through cover well and floats up fast if you get it mired in the stuff. If you fish the shallows, get you some of these. Thanks TW, for offering these great cranks.

Comments: This bait has such a strong thump it will only allow a slow to medium retrieve. I tried three at Pickwick fishing for smallies. 2 were swallowed by line siders that emptied my spool and popped my line; the other fell victim to a gar. Great baits, just make sure your using heavy braid and a baitcaster if there are big fish in the area.

Comments: Maybe you got a bad batch Kevin. The ones I have all kick out from side to side hunting great baits as all of the little johns are!

Comments: These baits are awesome the best shallow spro's yet , But John Crews is a lieing when he claims these baits will hunt and run a foot wide at times lol . They come strait in like every other spro but these are the perfect size and shape for that spring and fall bait that is so deadly at these times . To me these are the best yet from the Spro line and I have 6 to 10 in every line they have out ,so I can speak from time on the water fishing there baits.

Comments: I love the SPRO Little John Series of crank baits. The SPRO Little John Fat John is great for fishing the skinny water. I can hold my rod tip up high and make it "buldge" on top or I can hold my rod tip low and get it to deflect off of stumps and rocks to trigger a reaction bite!
