Way back when Lucky Craft was first getting into the North American market, the Moonsault CB series were the first crankbaits introduced here by Lucky Craft. Most pro musicians got their first axe used, or from a pawn shop, its not where you start, its where you finish. We hit multiple spots and I only caught four bass all day…one being a ½” shy of being another keeper. The Bass is an instrument of accompaniment, so you must play with others in order to experience and appreciate how to play lines that drive a rhythm, and embellish a melody.
So when Lucky Craft came out with the super deep D-20 some years ago, it was immediately deployed with good results by a savvy cadre of the sport’s top national and top regional pro anglers. Indeed, it’s about as extreme and heavy duty as a bass crankbait gets to be. There are few bigger crankbaits for bass (or that dive as deep), and those few that are this big, they are not as solidly-constructed as the D-20.
This enables the bass guitar to produce a crisp clear tone with good low end depth, punch and sustain. Keep practicing the bass tabs above, try different things with them, experiment, have fun. One of the main things to consider when looking at a 4-string bass (and every bass for that matter) is the material used to make its body.
One of the cuts had bass exploding on shad all over the place, but getting bit came down to throwing at the right spot at the right time. I am giving seminars at a Bass Pro Shops store today, and I expect they’ll call me in to give the next presentation pretty soon.
Presently, Bass Pro Shops is growing by leaps and bounds while serving over 75 million outdoor enthusiasts a year. Either one can be the winning ticket when everyone and their uncle has been bombarding the bass with noisy rattling baits. If you are interested in learning more about playing the bass or just thinking about getting started, then don’t wait we are not getting any younger.
