Bass Pro Shops Paddle Stik
Why Paddle when you can Wiggle
If you really want a stick bait that flaps, this is one of the better choices. Has good salt and scent, and several colors.
Like any paddletail, it will stir surface water, but for any other application nothing beats the dying shad imitation of a regular Stik-O.
The Bass Pro version is probably one of the best for shad imitation, price, and color selection, but I give two thumbs up for Strike King's Ocho. It costs about twice as much, but when you need a "go-to", it is the one to go to and still costs 25% less than a Senko.
In "Double Header" color (green pumpkin, black neon) with its coffee scent and 8 sides, it can be fished almost anywhere without hangup, and is close to "magic" for a lure that does not do anything but wiggle.
Try either the Stik-O or Ocho weightless on a 4/0 "G" hook or Tex Poser 4/0 (like a "J" but more angular where the "J" is round), or with a 1/32 unpegged bullet.
Why paddle when you can call them with a wiggle!

just try em you'll like them
Works great for smallies in a 1/8 ounce shakey in 1-10' of water. Suppose it would work for the large mouths too. The other day I couln't get a bite on the go to chigger craw but the paddle stik worked like a charm. Super durable like all BPS brand plastic, alot more fish/bait that the other brands. And to top it off you can't beat the price.

No matter how you fish this thing, you will catch fish! The flapping tail is irresistable
to bass, it drives them nuts! I have seen bass chase this bait more than 30ft. and then smash it. Some bass will even strike and miss this bait more than twice and still, they will keep on charging! The best color is watermelon red flake.

Paddle tail Stik-O
a great soft plastic bait for bass....will outfish a basic senko stick bait. the paddle tail offer the bait the image of a bait fish and still maintains the slow fall of the basic senko. Bass Pro Shop offers in a limited range of colors and even fewer colors in the stores...so check your BPS catalog for all the colors.
