    What to look for when fishing crankbaits:

    Forage:
    Pay attention for the most prevalent bass forage and what dept they are showing on you depth finder.
     "Match what the fish are feeding on"

     Staying with the basic colors will help you avoid spending hundreds of dollars on wild crankbait colors.

    Water clarity:
    In clear water situations, you’ll have your best luck with natural-colored, translucent crankbaits.
    Bass can see very well in this environment and it’s important to make your crankbait blend in with its surroundings.
    Dirty water calls for brighter crankbait colors. The bass’ eyesight is significantly hindered in murky water, making it imperative to use a color they can see and chase easily.

    Sky conditions:
    Pay attention to the sky when fishing shallow crankbaits.
    Under cloudy skies, opaque, or solid, colors perform very well due to the decreased light penetration.
    Sunny skies lead to more light penetration, which increases both clarity and the effectiveness of more translucent colors.

    The top 5 colors of crankbaits:

    Shad Color:
    You just can’t go wrong with the natural presentation of a shad-colored crankbait, which makes this color great starting point for your shallow cranking bait. It’s hard to go wrong with a shad color, you should have a few shad-colored crankbaits handy.

    Firetiger:
    In muddy water a Firetiger crankbait is hard to beat.
    While still showing many natural shad colors, the bright colors in a firetiger crankbait allow the bass to get a better bead on the bait.:

    Chartreuse:
    Used with combinations of blue, brown and black.

    Bluegill:
    As the bream bed throughout the late spring and early summer months, bluegill-colored crankbaits will produce.

    Crawfish:
     In the spring, especially throughout the pre-spawn period and during full moon phases.
    Crawfish are most active during a full moon, coming out of their dark dwellings to actively search for food for much longer periods of time.
