Rattling lipless crankbaits are an excellent way to catch bass throughout much of the year; the intense vibration and loud rattles often prove irresistable. There comes a time, however, when the bass become conditioned to the sound and vibration. This can be due to a number of factors such as fishing pressure and weather fronts.
