Bass Pro Shops Shadee Shad
better than zoom
I ordered the shadee shad from reading one of your reviews on this product. Well, it is better than zoom flukes. I live in Eastern Kentucky and there is alot of rivers here. Second in the U,S, There is plenty of smallmouth here. I used zoom flukes for years and I finnaly decided to order the shadee shad . It held up alot better than the fluke,matter fact . It was a four to one ratio. Only problem is not enough colors.

Look out below !!
I bought a pack of these 5" in watermelon gold because I wanted to see how they stacked up against the perennial Zoom fluke in watermelon gold. At first glance I did not like the fact that the BP shad's gold flakes were large and seemed unrealistic. That is where the comparison ends because as soon as I chunked this thing in the water...Kaboom! I started nailing Bass. I was hooked after this because this bait is a little bit heavier than a standard fluke and I can throw it farther on 12lb test. I am impressed with the quality of this bait, I do wish that BP would increase the color selection to include some of my other favorites like watermelon magic, golden bream, disco green, and smokin candy...

Bought these for a smallmouth trip to Maine on the Pennobscot River. What impressed me the most was their durability. The thickness at the top of the Shadee Shad, where the hook is initially put in, is much thicker than other similar flukes. This made this bait much more durable. Where the other jerkbaits would rip at the top after one or a couple hookups, the Shadee Shad lasted much longer, often catching over a dozen smallmouth with one bait. Many sizes and colors to choose from and a reasonable price.
