You may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait

4 posts in this topic

I see that some people have a hard time keeping Bass on the end of there line when using Lipless Crankbaits. All I can say is I use a Medium/light or Medium 7 foot rod with 8 or 14 Lb test Fireline and I do not lose fish more often with it then any other fishing method . So I sat down and thought. How could someone lose fish with a Lipless Crankbait? This is what I came up with.

If you yank the fish to the surface, skip crank it to the boat across the surface, you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

If you have to flip the fish aboard the boat with your rod (as seen on TV), you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

If you feel you need to use 20 or greater test line, you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

If you feel you need to use a medium/heavy or greater rod, you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

If you feel you need to see the fish before you get it to the boat side, you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

If you think Bass fishermen never use a net, you may lose your fish on a lipless crank bait.

Someone's been watching too many Jeff Foxworthy shows and flipping to the fishin shows during commercials.

Good advice though.
