Our Bass Pro Shops® Squirmin'® Shad is a fish-catching phenomenon! This soft plastic standout is as versatile as it gets. A bite-size body and stubbed tail create an impressive, fish-attracting movement and a eide variety of forage colors make the Squirmin' Shad a great choice!
The 3" inch would be perfect for small and largemouth bass. 4" would be ok for largemouth bass as well depending on the size of the forage they are already feeding on. However, I believe 3" is a good general size for either species and the best place to start. Of course the only other factors now are color and jig head weight.
Lay the bait on it's side and measure the length of your hook against the body. Then, flip the bait on it's back and cut a slot in the belly from about 1/8" from the nose to the lenth of the hook. Carefully cut the slot until you have about 1/4" left. This allows you to Texas rig it without trying to get the hook through the whole body.
What would be the best size&color to use when fishing in the brackish dirty colored Myakka River in Fl? Are they good for snook, redfish, or snapper? And how would they best be mounted-on a hook or jig or? And what size/color/mount to use for surf fishing? We like to surf fish off of Boca Grande. Any help would be appreciated. TIA.
In dirty water I tend to start out with bigger baits and downsize accordingly. I fish a LOT of stained/dirty water and ALWAYS start with large Firetiger. I haven't found a color that will out produce it and I fish in the Mississippi river a lot.
I find shad baits tend to work better in the winter or in dirty water. I usually stick with the 3 and 4 inch sizes. Generally speaking rigged on a jig head and weight depends on depth. The shallower the water the lighter the jig head. As far as color, try to make your shad look like what they eat. Pay close attention for tints in the fish.(blue, pink, purple, green, or gold. Water color and light level of the day can be critical for color selection. Sounds like a lot, but when you stop trying to figure out color, you stop catching the fish you could be catching. Don't give up.
