Searching for active, shallow Bass? Tie on an Arashi™ Wake Crank, says Storm® pro Brandon Palaniuk.
“It’s a great search bait — perfect for calling fish in,” says Palaniuk, the 2013 Bassmaster Classic Runner-Up. “Designed to run just under the surface with a hard, rolling action, it creates a pronounced tail kick that makes a wake that really gets their attention.”
Fished fast or slow, the Arashi Wake Crank runs true, creating a consistent fish-enticing wake. A single-ball cadence rattle creates a unique sound and vibration, adding to the Wake Crank’s ability to call in fish from a distance.
Productive in both clear and stained water, the Arashi Wake Crank has a spot on Palaniuk’s boat deck from the post-spawn period all the way through the fall. “Whenever fish are up shallow, the Arashi Wake Crank’s a good option,” he says. “Between a topwater and a shallow-running crankbait, it gives the fish a different look.” He throws it around laydowns, stumps, weed lines and the edges of lily pad fields.
Like all baits in the Arashi family, the Wake Crank features a circuit-board lip, patent-pending self-tuning line tie, rotated hook hangers, holographic 3D eyes and premium VMC® Black Nickel Hooks.
The self-tuning line tie ensures that “Once these baits are in tune, they’ll never come out of tune,” Palaniuk explains. Circuit-board lip construction allows for a thinner bill, which makes the bait durable and gives it more action at slower speeds. Rotated hook hangers accommodate larger hooks.
The Arashi Wake Crank comes in 16 colors: Hot Blue Shad, Bluegill, Baby Bass, Crappie, Blue Back Herring, Wakasagi, Ghost Hitch, Pro Blue, Rusty Craw, Mossy Chartreuse Craw, Red Craw, Hot Chartreuse Shad, Parrot, Black Silver Shad, Green Gold Shad and Black Chartreuse Shad.
