How To Retrieve The Skinny Lipper [3 Retrieve Styles]


The Skinny Lipper lure has quickly become one of my favorites for covering shallow water feeding zones because it can get strikes from both lethargic and aggressive fish.

The key is to match the retrieve to the fish’s behavior. This video below will show you the 3 retrieve styles that you need to cycle through as you’re searching for fish to see what they respond to best.

Make sure to cycle through these retrieve styles as you fish because what they respond to can change throughout the day.

All 3 styles work, so it’s important to practice all 3 so that you’re ready to match the retrieve to what the fish are responding to best.

We can’t wait to see some great fish you catch with the Skinny Lipper.

Thanks for all the great video tutorials. I’m new to Bogue Sound, NC and Salt Strong, you and the community have been a big help. No great success yet but I’m stubborn and I’ll keep at it. I’ll give this skinny lipper a shot, it looks like a great lure.
