Stickbait is a floating or slow sinking lure with no lip.
These lures remain permanently on the surface and dive only very briefly. They are, without a doubt, those where the fisherman has the most impact on swimming. The absence of lip does not give them the “automatic” wriggling that other types of swimmers have.
In fishing, the swimming of these is determined by the speed of recovery and especially the amplitude of the movements printed with the rod.
