Tips from John Crews-Fat John vs. Fat Papa
"They are 2 very
different square bill cranks. That is the deal. The Fat John is lightly buoyant
with a natural hunting action that runs about 4-5 feet deep. The Fat Papas are
very buoyant with a harder thump and don't run quite as deep as the Fat John.
They are great compliments to each other.
The Fat Papa is hard to
beat around isolated wood and real shallow hard cover. The Fat John is better
served as a search bait with its long casts and hunting action that gets
strikes even when not hitting cover. Both are very good around docks."
