Gear Review: Bill Lewis MR-6

What is it?

Bill Lewis MR-6

What sets it apart?

The MR-6 is a high-performance, compact crankbait with an internal weight-transfer system. You can throw this snack-size crankbait a country mile, which is crucial for crankbait fishing. At 2 1/4 inches long, this bait's body is just long enough to carry two No. 4 Mustad Triple Grip trebles for an increased hookup ratio. Its weight system makes the bait slowly rise when its paused. It is available in 16 different forage-matching colors making this a go-to bait for covering the 6-foot depth range.

How do I use it?

This small 1/2-ounce bait casts a mile, making it perfect for covering shallow water year-round. This bait dredges through riprap and wood like it is its job and cuts through sparse grass like a weedeater. The subtle knocking and tight wobble will attract fish in muddy water. The color selection has you covered in super clear water too, with the more natural, clear colors like ghost craw and pro blue.

Anglers Insight:

Right out of the package this bait is a winner. From the high-quality paint schemes to the premium Mustad hooks, this bait will certainly put more fish in the boat. The flat sides and tapered tail give this bait the tight wobble that bass will crush in spring and fall especially. Lastly, you can't beat the price for this bait – grab one and go run your favorite grass edge or rip rap.
