Squarebills (sometimes written square bills) are a great treble hook bait to deflect off cover (and there aren't a lot of those). In this remastered bass fishing seminar class video, Kevin Short provides a great overview of when, where and how to fish plastic and balsa wood squarebill crankbaits. K-Pink shares some of his favorite baits, including the elusive WEC crankbaits that were hand-painted by William Ed Chambers and are now hot items on Ebay. You'll also learn what 2 color patterns that Kevin relies on to catch fish all around the country, and what shapes, bill shapes, line tie placements, etc will affect how a squarebill crankbait runs in the water.
