lipless swimbaits

6 posts in this topic

how do lipless swimbaits (for example, spro BBZ) get their action? is it a flat patch ontop of the head similar to a lipless crankbait (rat-l-trap) that gives it the action?

how does one go about making a lipless swimbait?

thanks.

the flat head provides a baits orientation with resistance build-up, but it alone does not cause the action. much of the vibration is caused by the same principle of a flag flying in the wind. as air/water passes by, there will be a tendency for the medium to flow past one side better than the other, thus causing a flux towards that side. the neglected side will then try to compensate for this, causing an ongoing and dynamic role reversal. some lipless baits are completely lacking of a flat head and yet they still function similar to others.

Chartreuse, excellent description.

Do a google on "vortex shedding", fascinating subject, easy to understand and it tells the whole story.
