A relative lack of structure characterizes many bass fisheries, so locating fish requires finding areas of subtle depth change and cover like isolated grass. Jeff "Gussy" Gustafson demonstrates how to find these sneaky spots on Florida's Lake Toho through the use of side/down imaging, 2D sonar, and waypoints. He then details his lipless crankbait strategy for covering water and contacting active fish.

According to Gussy, ripping grass with a lipless crankbait is an excellent late winter and prespawn technique. The bait mimics shad while giving off abundant flash and vibration. Gussy explains why he prefers a yo-yo over a straight retrieve, as well as his preferred rod and line for handling this power fishing application.
