      They were crushing Grubs that day, didn't have to use anything else. I love using lipless cranks but you do lose alot on treble hooks when they jump.
    9. Bryan Harper 0
      Good work! I caught a few on the old reliable grubs! Lost my biggest on a lipless and caught my biggest on a 1/2 oz Strike King Redcraw Double Willow Spinnerbait! ...more I still haven’t got any on the Marabou Hair Jig! I don’t have many lakes near many with Smallies! 😒
