Fred Hall Long Beach Show: Part 1 - Freshwater Coverage
Sisson was showing a new weedless crankbait design at the show. This patent
pending lip guard system creates the first ever truly weedless crankbait. The
design makes use of two distinct elements, the first being a wire that you
thread your line through before tying on the bait. This wire protects the lip
keeping debris from hanging on.
A weedless crank?
The second are weedless
treble hooks which use a fine wire that protects the hook point from grass or
timber but still collapses easily when fish bite down. The weedless design
creates the first ever truly weedless crankbait and is available on a dozen of
the most popular Lee Sisson wood lure models. These baits are available now and
will retail for $14.99 each.

Balsa is still
a great material for cranks, and Lee Sisson has now updated this old design with
Wordens: Wordens is
another brand within the Yakima bait company just like Lee Sisson lures. At the
show Wordens showed off their latest cedar crankbait, the Poe’s Competition
Cedar. These baits feature new “poly-tech” lexan deep diving lips that utilize a
unique shaved cutting edge for quick dives.
These baits are designed
to cover the 10-20 foot depth ranges with their hand-crafted blend of tradition
and technology. Because the lure’s still make use of cedar they feature an
attractive slow rise action and strong vibration and sound when deflecting off
structure. The Poe’s Competition Cedar baits will retail for $7.99 each, and are
also available now.
