How To Modify Lipless Crankbaits for Better Hookups | Bass Fishing

Glenn: Hey, folks. Glenn May here with BassResource. com, and
welcome to another edition of Hank Parker’sFishing Tips, where Hank answers your questions. Hank, this question this week, it comes from
Mike Burdette from Covington, Washington,and he wants to know what modifications or
tweaking do you do to your baits and why?Hank: Well, you know, that it is a very broad,
broad topic when you’ve got 5,000 differentbaits, and so I tweak about everything, but
let me just tell you one that I do. Any lipless crankbait, I’ve had so much problems
over the years keeping fish on lipless crankbaits. And a couple of years ago, Tommy Martin, pro
bass angler Tommy Martin, turned me onto atriple grip hook, which was a treble hook
that was bent inward. And I didn’t think that would work. I didn’t like that idea. I didn’t like it when I looked at it. I’d always flared my hooks out, and so all
of a sudden, I’ve got the hooks pointed in. I didn’t care much for that. But after I threw that bait with those triple
grip hooks, I was totally convinced that wasa winner. So you don’t have to change your hooks. You could take two pair needle-nose pliers
and very carefully bend those hooks inward,and with a lipless crankbait, fish that you
would lose if you didn’t have those hooksbent in, you will now catch. So, that’s one thing that I always do when
I fish lipless crankbaits. Glenn: Awesome tip, Hank. Mike, I hope that answers your question. For more tips and tricks, go to HankParker. com. Check out all the tips and the articles on
