Several top finishers, including Ontario-based pros Jeff Gustafson, who finished 2nd, and winner Chris Johnston, discovered a 3/4-ounce ChatterBait JackHammer could be fished similar to the locally popular method of ripping lipless crankbaits, but without constantly snagging salad.
Diversity also matters and that's why Lane typically has a 1/4-, 3/4-and 1/2-ounce lipless bait on standby.
Lipless crankbaits in the 1/8- to 1/4-ounce size are good for covering lots of water when the fish are down and you don't exactly know where to find them, and they also readily attack Beetle Spins, Road-Runners and other small spinner-jigs.
When I first set out to learn this stretch of the Upper Miss, I spent a lot of time trolling Shad Raps and rattling lipless plugs upstream.
It's one to get if you're committed to high-speed trolling; built "lipless" and hydrodynamic, it tracks true at up to 14 knots.
Kenney caught most of his shell bed fish on lipless crankbaits, which mimic the profile, flash and erratic movement common to threadfin shad.
* Right after the spawn in rivers, fish single-blade Colorado spinnerbaits or lipless cranks close to the bank in the "path of least resistance." In high water, work the base of the first drop with a tandem willowleaf model.

Lipless crankbaits in chrome finish also do a good job of catching Spanish.
And the reason we continue to talk about the difference in rippin', pullin', and pokin'-around retrieves is because there are so many times one approach with a lure like a lipless lure or a spoon totally changes how fish respond.
Lane's other search baits include a Yo-Zuri Rattlin Vibe lipless crankbait for open waters and a swim jig with a Havoc Craw Fatty trailer in vegetation.
By making long casts with lipless rattle- and bladebaits, you can cover more than a 200-foot radius around the plotted course of the boat.
