Tuning a crank bait

Not all fishing lures run correctly out of the box, and sometimes you want them to run a crooked path.I suggests some tweaks to change your crankbait retrieves. If a lure is not running perfectly straight, bend the eye hook toward the direction you want the lure to travel. Repeat until the lure runs straight. If the lure doesn't wobble correctly, change its split ring or tie it on with a loop knot. There are times you may want a lure to swim to the side. Bend the hook eye to the left, then cast the lure along the right side of a dock. As you retrieve the lure, it will swim part way under the dock. Bend the eye hook on a different lure the opposite direction, and use it on the other side the dock.
