The Buyer's Guide series continues with a look at our top lipless crankbaits. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly option, the perfect bait to burn over grass, or a balanced option for slow fishing the depths, we've got you covered.

With so many lipless crankbaits on the market its hard to know which baits to invest your time into. With these 6 baits you can cover every application.

10 Bass Weighed 81 lbs?!?! The REAL Story Behind This EPIC Photo!

You've seen this photo but you've never heard the story! Heart wrenching, painful, and epic, all at the same time! If you want to hear the heart and soul behind TacticalBassin, you've got to check this out!

Tim was as low as you could be. After more than a week in NICU with his youngest son struggling for life, Tim hit rock bottom. There was no where left to go but to the lake. He just wanted to clear his head... he had no idea he was about to begin the most epic week of fishing he'd ever experienced! When have you ever heard someone say they were hooking 6-10 lbers on every cast? Its almost unimaginable but that is exactly how it happened!

Here are all of the baits the fish were eating that week...

10 Pounder on the Lipless Crankbait!

Tim hit Clearlake between storms and got rewarded with a MONSTER BASS! In this video he explains exactly what went in to catching this 10 lb trophy bass!

For years we've preached how effective lipless crankbaits like the LV-500 are at catching trophy size bass. In this video Tim explains how he targeted a school of prespawn bass and was able to catch the biggest bass in the school by triggering her with the crankbait.
