how to fish heavy grass

We have a lot of what I think is **** tail grass from shore out 20' or so. Then lilly pads. If floating shiners for bass where is the best place to fish? Do the bass tend to hang closer to shore in that thick grass? no way to throw a shiner in there without hanging up. Thanks for any help..

    Along the outside edge of the grass and sometimes there will be openings in the pads which are good spots. I also like to drag a Zoom Toad along the edge and sometimes over the top of the grass and pads. Heavier gear is a must for this application.
