Metal Lips: Different Styles and When To Fish Them

In this video, Nick runs through different metal lip lures, the styles and their uses. He focuses on the 3 distinctive wooden metal-lip swimmer styles: surface swimmers, subsurface swimmers and deep swimmers (otherwise known as trollers). All of these types are similar in that they are made of buoyant wood, and a bent metal lip affixed to the nose of the plug. BackBay plugs are handmade and exclusively available in store. If you're shopping online and looking for an affordable way to get into fishing metal lips, the Gibbs Danny Pro Surface Swimmers are a great place to start.
