Crankbait Cover-Ups (www.coveryourcrank.com) are great for any angler trying to keep their rods and lures from tangling up; no matter if they are in a fishing tournament or just out fishing for fun. Speaking from experience it is no fun starting your day out on the lake retying your lures back on because they were all tangled up and cutting the line to get your rods free from each other.
Professional anglers Guido and Dion Hibdon know all about being successful when fishing in bass tournaments. Guido won the 1998 Bassmaster Classic Championship while Dion won the Bassmaster Classic Championship in 1997 and the FLW Cup in 2000. “One of the biggest benefits to the Crankbait Cover-Ups are they hide the bait from other anglers trying to check out what you are fishing with. Plus I like the fact that I can run down the lake and it keeps the treble hooks on my crankbaits or jerkbaits from getting snagged,” Guido continued, “they also solve the problem of drop shot rigs from tangling up; I just put the bait inside the Crankbait Cover-Ups, tighten up the straps that hold it and leave the sinker on the outside. Its great and now I don’t have to use rubber bands anymore.” Dion also praised the Crankbait Cover-Ups for keeping his rods from tangling, “What I like about them is they keep my rods organized; we all carry too many fishing poles in our rod locks and if just one lure pops off it becomes a big mess. Plus I like the concealment part on tournament day so other anglers cannot see what you are fishing with.” Dion also recommended that after removing a Crankbait Cover-Up, an angler attach it to the piston hinge in the rod locker so you don’t lose it and it’s ready to use when you put your rod back into the rod locker.
Crankbait Cover-Ups come in several styles to select from including the Stealth Series with a jet black boarder with charcoal vinyl covering, Red, White, and Blue Series, or the Original Crankbait Cover-Ups with a yellow boarder with either a clear or smoke vinyl covering. Sizes of the Crankbait Cover-Ups range from small to X-large accommodating small freshwater lures to massive saltwater lures.
