    +1 on this one! Line size and stretch I have found is key. I have switched to a 10lb MONO, and here is why. Floro has alot less stretch than mono and that little bit of stretch could mean you landing the fish and not. When fishing baits like a DD22/6XD or heck even a bandit 200/300 with treble hooks you need to have a little bit of give in the line so that the hooks to not rip out of the fishes mouth. The choice to switch to a 10lb MONO and a real cranking rod has changed my hookup ratio tremendously on Cranks. I no longer hate throwing them like I once did. Another Key Aspect is the right reel, alot of guys can throw them on a faster speed reel 6.3:1+ but I simply cannot. I have an older Lews 5.4:1 speed spool reel that I use and it helps me keep the bait down and not over crank. Im no Expert either but thats my 2 and a half Cents on the subject. Keep cranking and experiementing man it will finally click. Dont get discouraged Mind over Matter!!!!
