What is a good casting crankbait that will dive to the 6-8 foot range? I have a few but seem kinda small to really cast well. I'm looking for some crankbaits for river striper fishing. I ordered a couple Rapala DT-6s. Any other favorites? These will mainly be used floating the Neuse searching for spawning run stripers.

I have always had good luck with Bomber Models As cast like a dream and tough as nails. If I were targeting stripers I would throw a white/chartreuse Rocket Shad, not sure about the salty stripers but their freshwater cousins like them.

I need some bombers. I've caught lots of fish on those. Just been a while since I bought Bomber.

DT-6's are the way to go my friend.. also just so you know Strike king's version of the DT6 is a square bill, same exact patterns as rapala.. they run a bit shallower and a fraction of the cost.. I just purchased three of both brands.. paid 18.00 for Rapalas and 10 for strike king... caught a 6'4 oz LMB Sunday on the Strike king!!

Anyone tried a Berkley Flicker Shad? They are low buck, run deep, but I haven't tried one yet.

Not really rooster-tail, I purchased three DT6's that cost me 18.00 a fourth would've put me at 22 as well.. those were not square bills.. the three for ten square bills I purchased were Strike king models... both have rattles but the Strike king rattles are louder than the rapalas.. try Dicks.. I'll post pictures when I get a chance.
