    Default Who catches fish on Metal Lip Plugs?

    Its my favorite way to catch, this year most of my Bass were on wooden spook type plugs, teasers, plastic and Hogys.

    Who catches a lot of Bass on Metal Lip Swimmers?
    I think Dark catches with them often.

    Rip-Plugger catches a lot of his Bass on Metal Lip Plugs.

    I use them frequently, but not this year all you needed was a teaser and green diamond jig by the time I started going.Maybe next year I'm getting quite the collection going and still building the kits I'm out of room for now for the lathe but I'm working on it.I'm toying around with different weighting on some of them now to see how they work out.

    beachmasters are good, I also like the slopehead swimmers. They are pretty versatile. I will use them for almost any kind of bait at night except for when its a pure rainfish bite. They are a great all around plug for targeting bigger fish. Nice pic monty.

    What finchaser said. Dannys and metal lip swimmers are great when bunker or herring are around in large enough numbers to get fish in the mood to chase them. Unfortunately NJ beaches have less and less bunker blitzes because most of our structure has been buried by the acoe. The recent storms pulled some sand out and exposed some rocks. I don't think we will have a lot of blitzes in the future like we used to have.

    That big plug mentality works best where you have big bait regularly moving in and out of an area. This is only my opinion. I have caught most of my bass this year with bucktail and pork or small profile offerings.

    Last fall on the SS when the mullet and peanut bunker were moving through metal lips were money.

    No disrespect but Super Strike doesn't make a metal lip swimmer. I assume that was what you meant by SS

    doing it on the large size has always done it for me weather the bunkers are showing themselves or not,there are always fish staged for feeding and they won't let a meal get by them so,I throw and throw until they give it a taste.
    has worked well for a good amount of years gone by,,,I am sticking with it and let the other guys wish.
    I don't over analyze the situation,I just get out there and throw the rotation with a mix and one of them will hit.
    I don't match the baits size,i try triggering the feed mode since I am not after 5 lb fish.

    I did not catch many fish last year on metal lips.
    A few blues on Rip Pluggers metal lips and a bass bass or two on his Side Winder.

    I did not get in on the mullet action in 2015.
