Big bass and shallow water! The pre-spawn is the perfect recipe for squarebill fishing! As the big ones move up a lot of the traditional patterns fade away in favor of high-speed reaction baits. The square bill is a perfect candidate for this style of fishing and today we're making it so easy that anyone can fish them effectively.
There are only a couple of considerations that you as the angler need to make when selecting a square bill. Pay attention to sound (or lack of sound), size, and diving depth. Once you've made those simple selections all that's left to do is cover water in search of those big pre-spawn bass.
We keep color selection very simple. Ideally you'll want to fit baits into 4 categories. Craw (red), Ghost (see-through), Reflective (Chrome or scale pattern), and white. If you have baits in these 4 categories you're prepared for 99% of the conditions you can face on the water.
