Lipless crankbaits allow you to work the entire water column with the added ability to change retrieve speed and cadence on the fly — this equates to covering water fast while figuring out what the fish want. Furthermore, Smith stacks the odds in his favor with a truly silent, tight wiggling bait to fool wary, clear water bass.
