About us

Our Mission: To bring custom, tournament quality bass baits to the recreational angler.
How do we accomplish this mission? Clyde takes pride in offering the recreational angler professional quality fishing lures at reasonable prices. We offer four distinct collections of baits, from a fully custom painted collection of "bleeding" baits that is exclusively ours, to a premium series collection with brilliant, factory painted finishes,a collection of topwater baits whose gloss black and red colors are just plain sexy, and a budget-minded collection of custom painted lures that won't break your wallet. All of our products are designed to be true to our desire for our baits to emulate an injured fish that will naturally attract a predatory fish. Lastly, the painted blanks are built using tournament quality components. We use US made stainless steel split rings, and hooks and trailers from companies such as Mustad, VMC, and Owner. The end result? Budget minded, high quality baits that JUST CATCH FISH!
Based in Newark, Delaware, Clyde's Cranks is the brainchild of Bob Waldo, who has taken his passion for bass fishing and leveraged it into this vision of bringing unique, high quality baits to the discerning recreational bass fisherman.
