Matter of Crankbaits

The huge storage lockers on our Nitro ZV21 Pro boats seem to fill up fast with crankbaits.  Even more, lures travel with us in the back of the truck.  For crankbaits, the action is always the first question, depth is the second, and color is the last, but where does crankbait size fit into the equation?

Pronghorn Lessons

Burke has been guiding and outfitting in northeast Montana’s Missouri River Country for more than two decades for elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep and antelope.  Like many western big game hunters, Burke has a passion for antelope and offers some hard-earned wisdom.
