Don’t Give Me Any Lip !

Sometimes giving lip may get you a “fat” lip….but if you’re fishing & throwing lipless lures, that’s a whole different ball game. This was the case Saturday Aug 29 during a casting & cranking episode. While the weather specialists are trying to figure out Erica’s path, I thought I’d venture out before possibly getting land locked for a few days. Although the bite wasn’t fast & furious, at least there was one….so to speak.  I started out with topwater that was nil….swimbait….nope….lipless anyone?  Yep – but had to keep in a search mode & change baits too.

The Spro Aruku Shad is a great search bait….along with A Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap. The colors below are 2 of my favorite….both were suggested by tournament anglers for me to try several years ago. It pays to listen!

Spro Roland Martin Signature Aruku Shad Series Gold Black

Spro Aruku Shad 75




These were the 2 baits that seemed to produce & what’s amazing was after not getting bit, I’d go over the same area throwing something else & bingo….I managed to catch 4 keepers….nothing big….just a run of the mill FL bass encounter. Just remember, that next cast can be a Trophy Catch.  Enter for Trophy Catch
