Buzzbaits are taking some good bass, too, on the outside edges of the grass, but you have to use a trailer hook because they are just kind of slapping at it and short striking. Suspended jerkbaits fished on the edge of the grass is also taking some bass, but you’re going to catch some stripe like that, too.
