Legendary crankbait angler David Fritts doesn’t shy away from using crankbaits around grass. When you do it properly, you can quickly fish large areas while fowling your hooks a lot less than you’d think.
Like cranking hard bottom areas, it’s important to make contact with the grass. This is done by matching bait depth to depth of the grass and adjusting rod position during the retrieve. David also discusses the importance of fishing line when cranking and the reasons he favors braid over fluorocarbon and monofilament line.
