There's no shortage of fish species who are known to strike the Warpig lipless crankbait.
Among the lipless crankbait category, one Berkley bait has carved a name for itself as reliable and noteworthy. The Warpig, crafted in a vast selection of realistic colors, makes for a necessity in most anglers' tackle collections.
One of the reasons for its popularity lies in the abundance of success across species lines that the Warpig can muster. Check out these four fish that never seem to resist it, and see if you can increase it with any others.
1. Smallmouth bass
They're not always known to crush lipless crankbaits as much as other baits, but when a smallmouth population has been pressured, try a Warpig and see what happens. Odds are the lifelike design and wobbling action will entice more than a few strikes.
2. Striped bass
It might seem like largemouth bass are the biggest Warpig eaters, but stripers (and hybrids) are fond of them too. Pick a color that mimics a baitfish in your water body, and you're going to wish they had them in larger sizes!
3. Largemouth bass
They're surprisingly resistant to snags, allowing you the confidence to throw them where you know the big lunkers are hiding. The blunt nose avoids getting hung up and you'll notice the difference cast after cast.
Believe it or not, the Warpig has been known to attract more than a few bites from the toothy walleye, and if you're in a lake or river where fishing pressure is high or on the rise, it might surprise you how well it can work. The brighter, shinier colors are best if you're going to target them.
