Bass Pro Shops Squirmin' Shad
These are great shad baits. I bought them in the 3 inch firetiger color, and the 2 inch blue with orange head color, and they are sweet. I rig them on a 1/16 ounce jighead, and its just like a mini swimbait. The paddle tails work really well, whether worked slow or fast, they go nuts in the water. When rigged on a jighead, if you reel it in slower, its nose points towards the ground, which looks really good, and they come in 20 packs, which is way more than you pay for, for such a good bait.

A great swimbait!
These shads have the same great action that the more expensive swim shads do. The tail swishes back and forth at even the slowest speeds and the entire body of the shad shakes side to side when fished on the appropriate jighead. Great with large and smallmouth bass, crappies, and perch in freshwater and stripers, bluefish, and weakfish in saltwater. Makes a great crankbait when you want to avoid using trebel hooks. Just wish they had one in all white or pearl for the stripers.

As an angler without a boat I routinly fish smaller rivers for walleye. I have not found a better soft plastic to tip my jigs with than swimbaits such as these. These shads are probably the best I have tried, they are soft enough that walleye and bass will hold on to the jig without letting go, and strong enought that they are not constantly tearing off the hook. I highly reccomend the 3 inch size for walleye big or small, in firetiger. They work form spring trough to ice-up.

Just recently recieved my 3 " squirmin shad (silver / black) from B.P.com. I fish on Shawnigan Lake on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia. First day, fifth cast, BOOM! 3lb 9oz Smallie. Made me giggle to get the stink off the lure so quickly! What's that? 3 casts later and had another 3 lb, 2oz Smallie. I rigged it Carolina with a 1/8oz split. Would'a caught more but the phone rang...it was the wife. I would recommend this product with your phone turned off.
