Fishing Tips

Fish a Lipless Crankbait in the Prespawn Like a Classic Champ

Ott Defoe went out with us the day after he won the 2019 Bassmaster Classic and put on a clinic on exactly how he fished and won the bass fishing championship on his home lakes of Loudon Tellico on the Tennessee River. Defoe walks through the unique approach he has with lipless crankbaits like his classic winning bait, the Arashi Vibe. While many other anglers might choose a lipped crankbait, Defoe favors a lipless crankbait when the water is in the low 50 degree temperatures.
