Tips, Tactics and Techniques:    Russ Baker talked about throwing square bill crank baits in spring.  He likes to use fiberglass rods because of the give when a fish eats the bait which results in more hookups . Stiffer rods tend to pull the hooks during hook set.  He.has had the most success on the Bandit and Jackall baits in crawdad patterns.  He switches to deeper divers as the season goes on.  He uses mono for all applications.

Luke Morgan is on for May.
