Any of you fishing for bass with these metal vibration lures ?

I have been looking around at some of these (lipless metal) vibration lures, where you attach your mainline to the top of the lure, and I was wondering if any of you have been using them for bass fishing ? Strikes me that there might well be a bit of mileage in using them.......

The vibration lure above is a Zip Baits VIB 80 20g, and the more I think about the potential applications for these kinds of lures, the more I think they should work in certain situations. Obviously a metal lure is going to sink like a stone, and from what I can see after a bit pf playing around is that they literally vibrate like mad when you retrieve it (hence the name !!), but then some of the more specialist ones will do something enticing when you pause and let the lure drop down. Deeper water is the obvious place to go using them, where you should be able to play around with retrieving and also jigging it. Do a bit of digging around and there seem to be a whole bunch of these vibration lures out there, at all kinds of prices.

I also really like the idea of "bouncing" it in the tidal flow of say an estuary, where you could bounce it off the bottom and really draw/lift it up hard to get that vibration, with a sink and draw method similar to using a fluttering lure. But the vibration lure works on the draw/lift, whereas the flutterer works on the sink. The intense vibration on some of these lures reminds me a bit of a soft plastic shad on steroids if that makes sense. I would hazard a logical guess that pollack go mad for these metal vibration lures.......

The fact that you attach your line to the top of the lure I reckon will aid in more precise depth control when you are fishing off rock edges into deeper water and really using the lure to help search out specific areas. I might well be barking up the wrong tree here, I accept that, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. I am not about to start carrying fifty million lures when I go fishing, but what I am working towards is a very specific collection of lures that I can turn to for various situations. But one really important thing is to remember to throw the rule book out of the window as often as possible and use various lures in situations where perhaps the literature or available information says not to bother. Gather all the info you can, but make sure to keep that brain ticking over to other possibilities. That's what's got me thinking about these vibration lures.........
