I have learned that anytime a professional angler is willing to share the details regarding a pet bait or technique, it is wise to take note. In this case, the angler is long time veteran Elite Series Pro Bernie Schultz and the bait is the GYCB Fat Baby Craw.
Perhaps one of the most interesting things about bass fishing is the fact that you never stop learning and the bass always seems to find ways to surprise you with their behavior.

For many anglers, there is nothing more thrilling than targeting bass in shallow water. For GYCB Pro Jay Yelas some of his greatest professional triumphs have come this way, including his 2002 Bassmaster Classic victory on Lay Lake . Today, when targeting shallow water bass, Yelas relies on a pair of Yamamoto soft plastics to consistently put bass in his livewell: the Flappin' Hog and the Senko.
