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.
Lipless crankbaits have a reputation for losing big fish at the worst times. Stock baits often deserve the bad rap but with a few simple modifications these baits have a great hookup to land ratio! Add in a dedicated rod and you have a recipe for big bass success.
Below is a breakdown of the baits we recommend as well as rod, reel, and hardware upgrades to increase your hook up to land ratio. We'll also include our confidence colors for each bait.
