Last year Storm® introduced the Arashi™ series of versatile crankbaits following input from 2013 Bassmaster Classic runner-up, Brandon Palaniuk.
Now, following in the footsteps of the Arashi Square and Arashi Deep is the Arashi Wake Crank, a bait that allows bass anglers to target every part of the water column.
“It’s a great search bait – perfect for calling fish in,” said Palaniuk. “Designed to run just under the surface with a hard rolling action, it creates a pronounced tail-kick that makes a wake that really grabs their attention.”
Fished fast or slow, the Arashi Wake Crank runs true, creating a consistent, fish-enticing wake. A single-ball cadence rattle creates a unique sound vibration, adding to its ability to call bass in from a distance.
Productive in both clear and stained water, it has a place on Palaniuk’s boat deck from the post-spawn period all the way through to the fall. “Whenever fish are up shallow, the Arashi Wake Crank is a good option,” he adds. “Between a top water and a shallow-running crankbait, it gives the fish a different look.”
Like all baits in the Arashi family, it features a circuit board lip, patent-pending self-tuning line tie, rotated hook hangers, holographic 3D eyes and premium VMC® Black Nickel Hooks.
“The self-tuning line tie ensures that once these baits are in tune they will never come out of tune,” Palaniuk explains. “And the circuit board lip build allows for a thinner bill which makes the bait durable and gives it more action at slower speeds. Rotated hook hangers accommodate larger hooks.”
The Arashi Wake Crank comes in 16 colours: Hot Blue Shad, Bluegill, Baby Bass, Crappie, Blue Back Herring, Wakasagi, Ghost Hitch, Pro Blue, Rusty Craw, Mossy Chartreuse Craw, Red Craw, Hot Chartreuse Shad, Parrot, Black Silver Shad, Green Gold Shad and Black Chartreuse Shad.
