Quality built from the start, the Team Ark Squarebill Crankbait will keep running true after being crushed by numerous bass and banging off all the rocks and stumps it took to get those bites along the way.

How to Rig

Rod, reel and line choice are critical components of successful squarebill fishing. A fast-action rod tip should be avoided. Opt for a moderate-action rod with plenty of parabolic mobility. A 7-foot medium or medium-heavy, moderate-fast action rod with 6:1 gear ratio reel will set you up for success.

Fish the Team Ark Squarebill Crankbait with 10- to 20-pound fluorocarbon, although 12-pound test is ideal when fishing around heavier cover.

How to Fish

Cranking is one of the best ways to fish because it’s so versatile. You can throw a shallow running crankbait near hard clay bottom bank, rock bank, submerged grass and brushpiles. A crankbait mimics what a bass eats like shad, bluegill, crawfish. The key to shallow cranking is to have the bait deflecting, digging the bottom, bouncing off logs or popping it out of a stump or a rock. There’s no better way to cover a lot of shallow water than with a squarebill crankbait.
