Try the square-bill crankbait for dissecting shallow cover. The square-bill is designed to be fished through rocks and wood without snagging. Most bites will come and the crankbait deflects off cover—creating a evasive side-to-side darting action that fish cannot resist. When throwing shallow-diving crankbaits it is essential that you use a moderate action rod, so that you do not pull the bait out of the fish’s mouth. Shimano’s Zodias and Expride series each offer fiberglass rods made for throwing squarebill crankbaits. A moderate action, glass rod results in better hook-ups and allows your bait to move through cover without getting as many snags.
