Berkley Badger is an avid Outdoorsman with a passion for fishing. An active Fisherman in the Bonita Springs area, Badger participates in fishing tournaments, from small local competitions to Bassmaster Series.
For Berkley Badger, nothing says ‘summer’ quite like a day out on the water. Casting his lures and tackle under the sun to reel in some tasty largemouth bass is what Florida fishing is all about for this fisherman! Based in the Bonita Springs area, the avid Outdoorsman takes full advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities the Sunshine State has for his favorite sport. With so many beautiful places to travel to fish and so many breeds to catch, Badger doesn’t even have to leave his home state to enjoy a weekend fishing trip. Over the years, he has tried out just about every type of bait, tackle and lure out there. But for Badger, nothing compares to crankbait fishing. In fact, he has collected quite the assortment of crankbait lures over the years. The Fisherman has even been looked to as an expert in tackle by his fellow anglers. Friends, family, neighbors and even competitors in tournaments eagerly look forward to his recommendations for the best bait in the game! At this last Bassmaster event, a fellow sportsman even recommended that he start his own blog series reviewing crankbait options. Stay tuned for his reflections in the new Berkley Badger Crankbait Recommendations series!
What is a Crankbait?
If you aren’t too familiar with fishing or simply new to branching out towards new catching methods, you may not know what crankbaits are. Lucky for you (and fellow members of the Bartering Exchange Network!), Berkley Badger happens to be an expert in this specific type of fishing lure! The most basic explanation of these devices is that a crankbait is a fishing lure designed to look like a baitfish to crawfish. In order to complete the catch, the lure has hooks affixed towards the bottom. Badger’s favorite thing about crankbait is that unlike lures that only look like bait, this type of lure is designed to move in a way that appears more realistic underwater. As the fisherman reels in his catch, the bait appears to swim.
