Bass Pro Shops Squirmin' Shad
Why change them?
I have used these for years. I always buy them in bulk so it had been a while since I had bought any. They changed for the worst. They are so soft now after you catch one fish the lure is usually torn and you have to put a new one on. I'm very disappointed. I can only hope they figure this problem out and fix it.

These are simply one of the best swimbaits i have ever used. My dad bought these in Branson and never used these i picked them up the other day fed a tube hook up the middle and slammed the fish the next two days out. I even caught two pike a baby one and a monster 35 inch which is goin on the wall. I also caught 2 largemouth. Both atleast 2 lbs. I will definately buy more of these.

Unqualified "thumbs up"
I bought the Dace color minnows in 2 to 4 inch for flats fishing in Southwest Florida. The color/shape/size really mimics many of the natural baits that swim here. 200 snook can't be wrong because they agree with me!
My wife and I have been catching snook from the beach this season until we are sick of catching them. We outfish our shrimp-slinging companions with these lil' guys, 2 to 1. They don't work work better than shrimp, they work just as well. The added bonus, however, is that I don't have to carry a pail of shrimp; I don't have to replace my bait every time I get a strike; I don't have every creature in the Gulf stealing my bait! I spend more time with my hook in the water, so we outfish the shrimpers.
Snook anhilate them!! They work their best at night. I'm not surprised, since I can feel the tail vibrate through my fishing rod. I'm sure that rings the dinner bell for a hungry snook, as they have a very sensitive lateral line. If I can feel the vibes, so can they. Very impressive engineering for a relatively inexpensive soft lure!
Frankly, I don't know how you could wrong in most fishing situations. They have the look, the feel, the vibes, and the price.
Tight lines, y'all.

I've been fising for many, many years and have never used a better walleye bait. They work well with a small jig head and are killers when you use them behind a #2 or #3 Mepps black fury with chartreuse dots on the blade. Just snip off the treble hook off and use a split ring to attach a #4 baitholder hook, thread on a 2-inch firetiger shad and start haulin in the 'eyes.
