4 Lipless Crankbait Tricks For Springtime Bass Fishing

Fishing Tips and Tricks
Prespawn Bass and Lipless crankbaits go hand in hand! After a long Winter of slow fishing its hard to imagine anything better than burning a lipless across shallow flats in search of big prespawn bass! Its ability to cover water quickly combined with amazing drawing power should put the lipless crankbait at the top of your list in Spring. In today’s video Tim teaches two different approaches to lipless fishing and gives some bonus tips along the way that you don’t want to miss.

When you hear the words “lipless crank” most anglers envision burning traps in shallow water, usually around grass beds. This method is so deadly on Spring time bass that its engrained in the minds of bass fishermen everywhere. However there is a second way to fish these baits that is often overlooked and typically catches even bigger fish than the burning method! The slow hop elicits strikes unlike any other lure we’ve ever encountered. It requires very specialized lipless baits to achieve the right action but once mastered, its amazing the caliber of fish you can catch.

Both methods should have a place in your arsenal. Both will work on any given day so we’re typically prepared with both styles of lipless tied on. While both the burning and hopping styles are done with lipless crankbaits, the similarities end there. You’ll want different lures, different weights, and even different line to really dial in the patterns. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment by style.
