TackleTour's "Gear Up For Summer" Buyers Guide
(Norman DD Series) The "Year of the Crank" forced us to select a
crankbait in this category and Zander got his way on this particular pick. No expensive
import lure here, just the humble yet reliable Norman DD series of deep diving crankbaits. This is the lure that Zander has caught more fish on than all other
tested crankbaits combined, and is also a top pick for pros including Randy McAbee, who is
famous for fishing crankbaits with money on the line.

What makes the Norman DD14 and DD22 so good are
that they get down quickly and are ideal for working around structure. The side
to side wobble and rattle is usually enough to incite strikes from as deep as
20+ feet down. When you are cranking deep down there will be times when you lose
your bait to snags and the good thing about Normans is that they are among the
most aggressively priced baits in the class at only $4.99 a piece. The Norman DD Series is
Tackle Warehouse for a discounted price of $4.39 in a dizzying
array of patterns.
...and gives a new meaning to
"bite the bait!"
(Yamamoto Flappin Hog II) It's Baaaaaaaack! The Flappin' Hog returns
after a short hiatus with redesigned flaps that increase motion and vibration in
the water. There are three appendages on this bait, all of which have distinct
movement when the lure is moved. Though there are a lot of appendages on this
bait all of them are
angled away from the direction of movement so that the Flappin' Hog II can
better navigate tight structure.
The Yamamoto Flappin' Hog is back!
This creature bait is smaller than the Yamamoto Kreature and can be
fished either alone or as a trailer on a jig or spinnerbait. Yamamoto also
offers a new swimming jighead which is ideal for rigging the Flappin' Hog II for
pitching and flipping.

Available in all the colors that anglers love in Gary Yamamoto's lineup
these lures come seven per pack, and retails for $6.49 but
Tackle Warehouse is offering the baits for a discounted price.
