Don't underestimate putting a sinker a few feet in front of the crankbait and letting it sink to your desired depth. I've slayed some bass on deep rock piles like that.

My all time favorite is the Bomber Model 4A series, firetiger color. Caught my largest LMB to date on it (about 7lbs) and it never disappoints.

I love the Bandits, all of them are amazing. I order mine from tacklewarehouse.com
Also love the strike king deep divers.
And my biggest go to bait when i couldnt get a bite was just a strike king red eye shad. Sexy shad is one of thier best colors.

Also, never underestimate some finesse fishing while you are trying to get a crank bite.
I've been hours at a time with not a single bite, pull out my spinnin rod and a drop shot rig or a shaky head worm go back through were i just was and pull fish out left and right.

Shallow bass I like the baby one series by Manns.Mid Range I like the Bandit 300,Rapala 7 Shad Rap.Deep I like the Fat Free shad or DD-22.
This time of year,a number 7 shad rap,gold in color,reeled very slow on rock banks and points is hard to beat.

Normans and bandits. I take a ball bearing on epoxy it to the belly of some and re color, better casting for smaller baits and sinks real fast

My favorite is the Strike king 5xd and 6xd for deep crankbaits. Hard to beat a Norman dd22 also.

Another vote for Bandits, 200 series.
Black Speckle Back, White Body, Yellow Belly (maybe #243) - your tackle box should always have at least 2 of these on hand.
