If you look on page 18 of the September/October '08 issue of Bassmaster Magazine, you'll find Kelly Jordon's deep cranking tips, including a crankbait C-rig. It sounds as though he only uses this rig "in a pinch." Jordon starts out using a 1oz sinker and ties on a two foot long leader to the swivel. He also recommends taking the front treble hook off the crankbait if you find that it gets tangled up in your line. Another way he recommends avoiding a tangle is to slow the cast down as the rig is falling.1 Great tips.
