In this #TackleTipTuesday brought to you by Mercury Marine, Mark Menendez (@MM BASS TV) explains how he gets away with fishing a bigger bait while decreasing the weight. This is easily achievable with soft plastics, but Menendez shows a handy DIY to do the same thing with hard body baits like lipless crankbaits.

Experiment with this and catch bigger bass in the early spring and late fall. #bassmaster #fishing
