when making crankbaits , should the tie on be close to the lip or does it matter? Does it make the bait swim any different?

Yes it makes a difference. On most crankbait designs, the closer the line tie is to the nose of the bait the more it will wobble. Where it is located on the lip depends on the the shape and size of the lure. Also the angle of the lip can make a difference. As a general rule I never go past the halfway mark from the nose of the lure to the tip of the lip. You will just have to experiment with the placement to get the action that you desire. If the lip is comming straight out from the bait and you move the line tie around and still do not get the action that you want, then you have only two options..... redesign the lip or start taking the angle of the lip downward. This will increase the wobble of a crankbait.
