Cranking up big bass
Spring is in full swing right now and that means the big girls are moving up to the shallows to put the feedbag on before the spawn. Using a squarebill crankbait is one of the most effective ways to cover water and find bass. Start your search on shallow banks with riprap, areas with timber and stumps, and banks with fallen trees. Early spring bass tend prefer a slow retrieve––make sure you are coming into contact with structure. Most strikes will come after your bait deflects off cover. The Jackall Aska is one of the top choices amongst many squarebill anglers. It has a natural hunting action—where the bait moves in an erratic side-to-side action that will garner bites even when the bait is not deflecting off cover.
