I use a Bottom Bouncer with a Crank behind it. I like to use it in a situation that I know I have like 25' of water and run it at 15 to 20 feet or anyplace else in the water column that I think is effective. It is a great way to catch fish that are staged off the bottom and it will pull them from the bottom too. Probably the most effective method for bigger fish we use.

It also allows for a variety of trolling speeds while still keeping depth control of the lure.

I use 3 ways alot on the river many times there are way to many boats around to let out lead core or long line. When running tight structure I can up my lead keep my lines more verticile and hold the contour better. For very short trolling runs in deep water 3 ways are the ticket for me. On the river I am running lightest 3 ounces up to 8 ounces.

Thumbs up Any body use cranks on a 3-way rig?

Guys and Gals,
Here's how to run a diving lure on a 3-way rig.
One of my favorite walleye lures dives 3 to 4 ft
deep so I do this , I put my dropper w sinker 6 ft
long and troll the lure at any depth by letting a little
more line out as I go to deeper water, till you feel it
hitting bottom.
Sometimes, well a lot more lately cause it takes a lot
of walleyes, #4 flicker shad on the same rig.
I would do this to about a maximum of 8 ft leader to
the bottom for a lure that goes to 6 ft, by using an
8 to 10 ft rod , so you are able to net the fishing easily.
I did real good last season, trolling during the hot summer
along deep drop off's or ledges or humps w a 3ft dropper
w 3/4 oz to 1 oz round sinker and a 6ft flurocarbon to a
J-9 jointed Rapala , black and silver going 1.2- 1.5 mph
Keep a tight line.
