If you bass fish frequently, you've likely collected a plethora of medium-diving crankbaits. I sure have. After all, medium divers fall between ever-popular shallow and deep cranks, making them appear very versatile. If I catch fish on shallow and deep baits, well, one that runs in the middle should catch more, right? Truth is, when it comes to actually using medium-diving cranks, many anglers learn that their applications are more limited than they thought. Sure, it's appropriate to pick them up during the post-spawn and crank shallow points as the bass move back out to the depths, and sometimes they're perfect for ticking the tops of 6- to10-foot deep grass edges in the summer. But for the most part, these lures sit relatively dormant for the bulk of the season. Let me tell you: now is the time to dust them off.
