Face it, Wakebaits are currently the trend in the fishing industry. We got our hands on one of the newest of the bunch, the River2Sea V-Crank Wake. This 0-1′ bait incorporates many features that others in this category simply can’t touch.
Available in 9 colors , the V-Crank Wake is the shallow version of it’s predecessor, the V-crank. The V-crank was made popular because it was a jointed, 2 piece bait, that featured a clacking piece inserted between the 2 pieces. When the bait wiggles from side to side, these 2 metal pieces on the body contact, and causes a unique sound that attracts a bass’ attention. The bait also features quality Daiichi hooks on the front and back.
The wake name comes from the ripples that the bait makes when the movement created under the water. The “wake” is the wave created, similar to how a spinnerbait, just underneath the water causes displacement on the surface. The picture below describes the result.
The V-crank Wake is a niche bait, that fills a void in your tackle box.
Durability: Constructed from ABS plastic. The bait takes the abuse from being bounced off laydowns with ease. The joint that holds the 2 pieces together uses River2Sea’s exclusive Pin and Tenon hinge design for ultimate strength and a smooth swimming action, even on slow retrieves.
The front lip is highly durable and is similar to the look of a popper type bait. The lip is shaped in a wide curved manner which keeps this bait shallow. More importantly, it is what allows for such a big wake above the surface.
