5" pearl shadee shad
Undeniably the finest soft plastic jerkbait I have ever used. I primarily fish walleye on the Missouri River impoundments. Specifically Lakes Sharpe and Oahe. I have used these bait exclusively in the tailrace of the Oahe dam. Both casting from shore and drifting the fast water the Shadee-Shad has out produced anyones soft plastics at least 2 to 1. If fish are finicky I will use an attractant like Gulp or
Berkeley Walleye scent on these baits. Try them you will not be disappointed. Link them up with a
1/4 or 3/8oz jighead preferably with a 3/0 hook.

Wounded bait fish.
There are half a dozen or so variations of this bait that work pretty well. I caught a nice SM bass with one like this not long ago. It looks like a wounded bait fish when you play it slowly across a gravel bed or through a weed bank. The trick would be to match a variation of this lure to the other bait fish in the area. Texas rig it with a light bullet weight and a bead. You need just enough weight to give it a little bit of fall. Stake the bullet with a toothpick to keep it from separating from the bead and lure.

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.
