How to Fish Shallow Water Crankbaits for Bass

Kevin VanDam’s favorite way to find and pattern bass in the shallows is with the versatile shallow-water crankbait. No other lure category allows you to rapidly cover water while eliciting reaction strikes from bass across the mood spectrum. In this outstanding lesson, KVD talks about the power of this presentation during the post spawn, when bass are still shallow and keyed on bluegill. He walks us through what to look for in terms of habitat, how to fish the lure, and the equipment to do so efficiently. He scores a few good fish in the process to really drive home his talking points.
