Your Bass Fishing Tip Of The Day Is
Crankbaits work best as a contact lure when bass fishing. Bump them against the bottom, crash them off of stumps, etc. This will cause the bait to stop and then dart erratically, causing a reaction strike. This technique drives bass crazy.
Ever think about drop shotting a crankbait or suspending jerkbait ? We have too ! Well, here’s how to do it.Take your crankbait or jerkbait you’d like to modify, and position the split ring forward, directly in the center of the bill.
Now with a small drill bit, drill a hole through the lip going through the split ring from the top side.To rig the bait, tie on to the bait’s split ring, leaving an 8- to 12-inch tag.Run the tag end through the hole you drilled and attach a drop shot weight. Be sure to use a heavy enough weight to sink the bait at the desired rate.You can adjust the amount of action the crankbait has by modifying the size of the hole you drill. A bigger hole allows for more wiggle. That’s all there is to it. Give it a try on your next day on the lake.
