Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassinsince80 best soft jerk bait used Have used the bassassin bait for years, rate it 10 out of 10 for movement, fish attraction and whack on bass. I do wish they would bring back the arkansas shad color May 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by SkeeterZX200 Great Tail Whip Action This bait is awesome when used weightless and letting it sink and giving it a slight twitch, bait will move in all directions. One helpful tip to help prevent line twist is attach a swivel about 24” above the bait this way when it rolls the swivel will take the twist out November 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by thedon1948 Consistent producer This lure not only produces well, but also produces larger bass. It is my go to bait and I highly recommend it. Will be buying plenty more. July 2, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by badboyhuntting Bass Assasin In my opinion the best speckled trout bait there is a 5" crystal shad.The only issue is the bait is to soft and tears easy. Try it you will love it. May 15, 2012

Details:Is there just one in each pack and if so are these good enough to pay $5 for just one? Thanks for your time.
Details:how do u rig this and what is color is best for bass
can u rig texas style?
A:rig with 4/0 hook texas style, without weight, cast, let it drop and then twitch the rod tip down with a fairly hard jerk, this allows the bait to flip up and act erratic. On the strike let it hold for a second and then set the hook. Braided line works best,
A:I fish saltwater so i a 1/4 oz jighead on 12" leader with a swivel on top so your line dont twist. I have no color for freshwater.
A:The best color for bass is any color you like, depending on the ambient light when you fish, bright sun use light colors, dark or over-cast, use dark colors, and yes you can fish it Texas rig. I prefer to rig it on a Keeper hook, and fish it weight less.
A:the best way to rig them is with a jig head , push it on far enough to keep its body straight with the hook coming out of the top
A:I texas rig it with a 4/0 gamakatsu skip gap hook. Any color can be the best bass color from day to day but I use black shad or fire tiger.
A:yes you can texas rig it and i prefer the green/orange color
A:I call it the texas tuck. It's a texas rig but I make sure to tuck the eye into the bait. It's really best fished in the texas/floating style since it can be twitched in an area a few times before leaving the strike zone.
I like to use the trout with chartreuse tail but I don't think I saw that one offered. The shiner/gold shiner are good too.
