What are your strategies for fishing shallow during the spawn when all the shallow water is full of grass?

Bass will also be in the grass holes, be carefull I know what's in that lake. I am thinking a broke arm is possible.

Good luck!

Yes. Very thick mats of it. Can hardly get to shallow enough water.

If the mats get to thick for the TM, bust out your chest waders and a 12 foot pole.

Hydrilla usually means clear water which means crappie spawn deeper. I used to catch crappie in the holes in hydrilla at Sam Rayburn in 8-12 FOW. Found one hole in 10 FOW about 25 ft across and proceeded to catch 18 from that one spot. I don't think they will spawn under the hydrilla; need some sunlight.

I guess the bank or maybe a flat bottom john boat ?
of course if the water clarity is like Ken said rather clear
they may be on the outer edge of the mats as well
one thing for certain I would try to drop a presentation in ANY holes in the mat
for grins try setting your float about 3 foot deep
and fishing the 5 to 6 foot deep on outer areas of the mat thumb
