    You can file it off and use it as a lipless minnow.  Add a small blade behind to increase the attraction...

    ​But then what’s the lip use for ? Diving action?
  • Luke Maow Bear
    For the side to side action and roll.

    What you do is you cast and flick the tip now.

    Pause in between and change how hard you flick. It'll work bro; don't be disheartened about the lip breaking.

    ​Quite dead except for the blade...  The lip is there to create the action of the lure, be it roll or wobble.

    So removing it would give it a straight retrieve, which may even work in certain situations.  Thus the suggestion of adding a small blade behind. 

    Here is the lure which I got from a fren after the lip was busted and filed off....  Added a small blade and it worked for me at Pandan reservoir.
