Wesley's Lil' Secret

Home / Wesley's Lil' Secret

The PH Custom Lures – Wesley’s Lil’ Secret – Custom Balsa Crankbait was designed with the input of MLF Bass Pro Tour angler Wesley Strader. This bait is the little brother to the extremely popular and effective PH Custom Lures Wesley’s Secret Crankbait that Wesley Strader has been throwing for years to cash more than one check. Wesley wanted a down sized version of the Wesley’s Secret, so him and Phil Hunt put their heads together and designed the Wesley’s Lil’ Secret. Wesley designed this bait to have a smaller profile to target bass chasing smaller bait fish and to use against highly pressured finicky fish. This bait is handcrafted from premium balsa wood, the PH Custom Lures Wesley’s Lil’ Secret Crankbait features a hybrid lip design that is a cross between a squarebill and round bill, giving it a very erratic thumping action and making it exceptionally effective around wood, rock, and other hard structure. This crankbait comes through laydowns, stumps, rock and brush extremely well. The hybrid lip design gives you a bait that will come through everything a squarebill will, but with a little different action to get fish that have been seeing squarebills all day bite. All PH Custom Lures Balsa Crankbaits are painstakingly detailed, they are covered with a clear coat, primer, paint, and an additional clear coat to reduce swelling and cracking. They are fitted with a durable circuit board lip, stainless steel line ties and hook hangers, which makes all PH Custom Lures Crankbaits have incredible strength and they hold-up to big fish and rough terrain. All PH Custom Lures Balsa Crankbaits are hand-tuned prior to leaving the shop, so they are ready to fish right out of the package. This crankbait is incredibly detailed from end-to-end, all PH Custom Lures Balsa Crankbaits features an intricate, hand-painted finish that owner and creator, Phil Hunt, has spent years perfecting. Well-known among top FLW Pro Tour, Bassmasters Elite Series and MLF Pro Tour anglers, all PH Custom Lures deliver tournament-grade performance that is proven to cash checks.

The PH Custom Lures – Wesley’s Lil’ Secret – Custom Balsa Crankbait weighs 3/8 oz. and is 2 1/4″ long and will dive 4 to 5 feet.
