Bass Assassin Saltwater Shad
These things catch inshore fish like crazy, especially when the hatch to match is spearing (atlantic silversides) or sand eels. The only problem is that one bluefish, or large fluke or weakfish and the thing is destroyed, which is to be somewhat expected with a softbait, but I have used other softbaits that hold up a little better, though probably not as effective at drawing a strike.

This is my best jerkbait to use around docks and an even better one to use around grass. I usually fish this effective lure on a 1/8 ounce weighted weedless hook or a 1/4 or 1/8 ounce jig head. My most effective colors are electric chicken and opening night.

The limtruese shad is so bright ! Great lure for those sunny days on clear water. I fish it weedless and also with a jighead depending on what depth I am targeting. Also works great with a popping cork.

Much better in freshwater
Bass Assassins are a favorite freshwater soft bait of mine but my results in saltwater have been far less than good.
