In the world of super-shallow crank baits, the Griffon Zero sets itself apart with a fixed Gyro Balancer System (PAT.P) and Hydrodynamic Body (PAT.P) design, which an underbelly water intake. These features allow the Griffon Zero to be fished as a "wakeâ€ť type bait or shallow sub-surface crank, depending on the angle of the rod tip and retrieve speed.
For most applications, we suggest retrieving the Griffon Zero with the rod-tip low, using a fast retrieve. This shallow sub-surface wiggling action will trigger incredible strikes when fished over shallow grass, rocks, or wood.
On cloudy days or early mornings, anglers will enjoy explosive topwater-type strikes by fishing the Griffon Zero with the rod-tip held high and a retrieve that is just slow enough that the Griffon Zero doesnâ€™t break the surface or dive, utilizing the waterâ€™s surface tension to â€śwakeâ€ť the bait.
