The SPRO Little John and SPRO Fat John Crankbaits.

The SPRO Little John and SPRO Fat John Crankbaits.

The SPRO Little John and SPRO Fat John Crankbaits are the brainchild of 11-time Bassmaster Classic qualifier John Crews. “The Little John and Fat John have a computer chip bill that is more durable than plastic and a silent weight transfer system using soft tungsten that translates into incredibly long casts for a small crankbait. We used the world’s sharpest trebles made by Gamakatsu. The Little John/Fat John crankbaits are the best shallow-running crankbaits available and come in an array of fish-catching colours.” The two crankbaits are uniquely flat-sided.

The tight wobble of the Little John allows you to cover water quickly and effectively, and the wide wobble of the Fat John provides a hunting action of 3-4 inches on each side. It also features a slightly different body shape, as well as, a different bill and line-tie angle.

The colours offered in the Little John and Fat John line are ones Crews recognized over the last dozen years on the tournament trail as being go-to colors. “I saw a need for a realistic perch color,” shared Crews. “Up north, smallmouths feed on a lot of yellow perch. We decided to offer those in the MD 50 and DD 60 series because they’re extremely productive smallmouth baits.”

“The new Homemade Shad color has a silver scale/shad pattern that is incredibly realistic. The colour will be offered in the Little John 50, a shallow-diver that catches fish wherever they’re keying on shad. The other two colours are some of the best in the SPRO jerkbait line, so we decided to start producing the same colours in the deep-diving Little John XL 70 series.” states Crews.
