CuCu for Cranking Sticks

While the biggest payara were caught on live and cut bait, during our recent trip to the Amazon many of the large wolf fish came on crankbaits. Toward the end of the week a few members of the group managed to catch some good ones on big squarebills in the rapids and eddies, overall the best bait was one that the lodge gave us, an oversized deep diver from Argentina. We caught fish with it casting to sandbars and deep rock outcroppings and occasionally trolling it over expansive flats.
