Floating baits if after casting to leave him alone, do not drown, but will float on the water surface. When pulling the fishing line he dives through the special shape of the blade, it goes under water, as if burying in its thickness. If you stop reeling, the lure back to the surface. All floating crank baits in turn are divided into two types: smooth and sharp diving.
Smoothly diving crank baits – is voluminous, often pear-shaped bait provided with a broad blade, the length of which is equal to the length of the wobblers. Blade angle of inclination to the longitudinal axis of bait is typically 5-20 °. The smaller the angle, the more flat and smooth is the trajectory of the dive. To this wobblers dove already at the beginning of the fishing line reeling and deepened at the slowest pace wiring, the line is not fixed to the bait body, and to the blade itself.
Smoothly diving crank baits (shallow runner) lures should be used in areas with a depth of 0.5-2 m. This reference bait pace should be fast enough, but not hasty. Small surface lures in length from 3 cm to 7 cm are quite stable on the course and do not usually require additional balancing. Large model length of 15 cm can be used for fishing at a depth of 4-4.5 m, but they are not as current stable as their smaller counterparts.
Very diving crank baits (deep runner) lures have an elongated shape and provided with a small blade is at an angle 60-90 ° to the longitudinal axis of the bait. Immersion depth of the bait depends on the angle of the blade mounting and wiring speed. The more angle and higher take-up rate of the fishing line, the faster the lure to reach the greatest possible depth of immersion.
And that of the sharply diving crank baits can be three, five and even six-meter depth. It should be noted that deep-reaching bait play well with the slow pace of postings, but on the course, even a little, the game becomes monotonous, and their fish is obviously less attractive. The same happens with this type of bait at a depth of more than 4.5-5 m.
In general, both types of optimal immersion depth of the floating crank baits are closely related to the magnitude (more correctly speaking, the length) of the working area, that portion of the path on which this model, each showing their best qualities. Most manufacturers’ wobblers attached to passports, and indicate the optimum depth, and the length of the working area at an average pace of doing bait and casting distance of 40-50 m.
In practice, the length of the working area is difficult to calculate, if at all possible. But with experience, will learn to feel when spinning lures course, he can not only determine the length of the working area, but also to change it, changing the wiring pace and angle of the rod. Skill at its discretion to increase or decrease the length of the working area or remove it in one direction or another is an indicator of skill.

Skill at its discretion to increase or decrease the length of the working area or remove it in one direction or another is an indicator of skill.
And yet, in spite of the skill of the angler, the length of the work area smoothly diving crank baits cannot be more than half the casting distance. And going deep crank baits it may be close to the length of the cast, but will never be equal to it. Based on these features, and should be chosen as the technique of conducting a wobblers, and tactics of catching fish.
At the heart of the art of catching on wobblers it is still the same speed wiring. After casting and splashdown lure energetic reel rotation is put to the required depth. Then comes a brief pause, during which, without ceasing to play, the lure floats. During a pause again preroll should be, but is not as fast and energetic, as in the initial immersion. Then the whole cycle is repeated again.
When using surface lures, pause duration must be reduced to a minimum, especially if fishing takes place in shallow waters. The retrieve speed, it is desirable to increase with each subsequent cycle. This kind of speed wiring will allow the most efficient use of the properties of wobblers throughout the work area.
Models sharply diving crank baits are more interesting when classic speed wiring. It is only necessary to bear in mind that they will sink in the water column, while the slow reeling the fishing line.
After learning in general, artless technique of wiring floating crank baits, diversifying further reference bait speed, frequency and duration of pauses, spinning himself will be able to choose the tactics of fishing that meets certain conditions.
That’s just one last piece of advice. Quite often advantageous to replace pause is very slow take-up of fishing line, one in which the lure can emerge at the same time move towards the angler. This trick allows, in some cases, especially when using surface lures, increase the length of the working area by 15-20%. And it’s not so little.
