. Square lipped crankbaits
Often the thought of treble hooked crankbaits fished through any type of cover would scare any angler, but the advantages of catching good bass on these versatile baits will hopefully see you giving it a try.

The more you fish the more you learn and the longer you’ve been doing it the easier it becomes. Reading the scene at any venue before we cast in comes with practice.
