We are using the very same techniques to catch largemouth bass that we used to catch Lakers. Using a lipless crankbait with traditional freshwater bass gear we’re ‘ripping’ the grass. This very nice bass was caught by casting out allowing the lure to fall and then during the retrieve ripping the lure up and out of the grass beds. The method is continually repeated in a cadence of choice until the retrieve ends back at the boat.
This is why tools (lures) don’t define techniques. Lures are a component of the technique. The lures and their related equipment are interchangeable. Whether it’s saltwater Yellowtail and Yoyo-Irons, Crappie tubes and pan fish or Tiger Tubes and giant game fish it’s all the same!
