Short Stuff lip question

7 posts in this topic

on a Bagley balsa B the lip is 1/2 inch from the bait and has a dive rating of 0-4 foot. If that lip was 1 inch from the bait, would it have a dive rating of 4-8 foot? Or would this be too much lip for the bait? The bait I am currently working on, the lip is 1 inch from the bait and I am just looking for opinions on this style lip and length.

Thanks

Tally

I think that it will work. Since the line tie is in the nose then the bait may have a sweet spot as far as retrieve speed is concerned. My thought that if cranked too fast the bait may try to lay on one side or the other. It may not. If it does and you want to get rid of the problem, then move the line tie out on the lip about 1/4 inch and try again.

Thank you gents! I knew I would have to experiment here, just making sure I was on the right track.

Here's my two-cents, from experience with a round

lip. I used a 1/2" and a 1" lip on a d-bait. There was

no difference in the action and very little in the depth.

Skeeter-

Thanks for the confidence!! I will do better than just let you know.. :wink:

Coley-

I am using a square lip on this bait, similar to the B1 only 1/2 inch longer. If you were just making a statement that a 1/2 inch wouldn't have much effect, I understand.
