Bass Pro Shops Squirmin' Shad
Squirmin shad=catch fish
I have used these baits for several years to catch a variety of saltwater fish including, sand trout, sea trout, spanish mackerel, small cobia, etc. When fish are aggressive, I fish them plain on a 3/8 oz jig. When they are more finicky I add a small stinger hook. When anchored up in a hole I often put one over the side in a rod holder with the bait just inches off the bottom. Wave movement gives these baits enough action to catch fish and I have added as many as seven sand trout to the ice chest this way. Those are fish that I wouldn't have otherwise caught! I also like to cast them on a jig using a jerky retrieve They are also effective vertical jigging bouncing the bottom, a great way to locate fish. All the colors work but my favorite is pearl with black back. They aren't very durable but are cheap enough that it doesn't matter.

Great for using on Trout! Used the 3 inch with Northlands Metallic Eye Ball jig heads. Wish there were more holographic colors. And I wish BPS would make jig heads to use with these swimbaits.But overall I cant say I didnt catch any fish!

First time used and will continue to use!
I couldn't land a fish all day and as soon as I switched to this lure I caught the one in the picture an absolutely awesome catch. The product looks real and this fish go right for them. They also have many colors and sizes to choose from and its a durable lure so a package will last a while. This is one product I will keep in my tackle box permanently and a must have for everyone else!!!
I even had people asking to take pictures of lure so they could go get some!

#1 bait 4 river-runnin' Walleye & Whites
This weekend I added an 1/8 oz. lead head to the green pumpkinseed/pearl hologram colored 2" jerk bait and tied it on to my 6.5' medium action spinning rod with 8 lb. test line. I bounced it off the bottom of a 1-6' deep quickly flowing river (Little Sac, Stockton Lake Missouri) above and below the rapids and caught two walleye and four white bass between 4-6 pm. Walleye will chew it up a bit and to find em on the bottom you'll lose a few, so take extra.
