When John Crews started with SPRO, it was to help design the best flat sided shallow crankbait on the market. We came up with the Little John 50. It is now a staple for many anglers across the country. John has designed 6 other Little John crankbaits and 2 Fat John crankbaits for SPRO. The flat sided crankbait has the standard set at any depth you want to fish. In addition to designing and promoting the crankbaits, John enjoys fishing and promoting the other great pro designed baits from SPRO.

Beginning to fish full time in 2001, John has been fishing for a long time. Qualifying for 11 Bassmaster Classics and winning a BASS Elite event in 2010 are his biggest career accomplishments. He considers himself a versatile angler but have likely made as more money on a crankbait than any other lure. In fact, his career earnings are well over $1 million. John also own's and design's the baits for Missile Baits, a company he founded in 2012.
