So neither Michael Nix nor Jesse Cornell have responded to being named winners in our free-crankbait contest. Never have I worked so hard to give away good stuff!

To get this closed out, the winner now is someone who not only posted a very credible answer to the crankbait question, but who is also a frequent poster here and an all-around good guy: Dr. Ralph!

Ralph, please send me your snail-mail address at and I’ll get your lures in the mail. And thanks again for being such a great participant on this blog.
