Tickling Eel Grass - Best Baits?

    So the deal is that bass are responding pretty good to baits that tick through or rip out of the tips of eel grass down here in Florida... We're talking shallow cranks and lipless cranks primarily. 5-8' of water where the top of the grass can be almost at the surface to 4 feet down from the surface.

    I'm looking for recommendations on shallow cranks or lipless cranks that are better suited to this type of fishing presentation - tickling the tops of eelgrass (For lack of a better label, term or phrase).

    I would think that some slow sink versions of lipless cranks might work for the eelgrass that is close to topping out at the surface, but I'm not sure of what all is out there in the market in that regard. I'm also not aware of any particular shallow crank that tends to rip free of eelgrass more cleanly than others?

    Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.
