Bass Pro Shops XPS Flat Shad
Pick up a few
Good quality. Ran as close to true out of the box as you can get for the price. Good durability. I picked up the SPlatter Back Pearl, Emerald Shad, and Georgia Shad colors.

I'm always skeptical about purchasing "house" products, but my eleven year old cousin is just getting into fishing and he thought they looked cool, so we picked up a couple Nitro Shads. While fishing a local lake we were catching fish on worms and jigs in deep water weedlines. Without me knowing, my cousin tied on this nitro shad and first cast landed a four pounder. Better than my 1.5 - 2 pounders. Next cast he landed a 3 and I rushed to Bass Pro the next chance I got and cleaned them out of Nitro Shads!

Began using these last year. Was looking to try the coffin bill design but didn't want to spend a lot of money. these are the ticket. Used them from April to September. Good wiggle action and it really takes a side detour when it hits bottom, trees or rocks. Caught many fish when it bounced sideways off trees. Worked good in catching fish around trees in 15-20 feet of water. Paint jobs have held up well. I don't fish around too many rocks though, but paint has held up to fish. Hooks held up great when pulling out of snags. Worked very well for me.

Clear water wonder bait
In clear water this lure is very visable and draws fish from a mile away. As all Lazer Eye lures do, they have excellent eyes and finishes that produce strikes. This lure runs deep and true but seems to be more suited for clear lakes or semi stained water in rivers. Use a straight quick retrieve without any pauses that would allow bass to study it too close because it has no natural prey coloration. But as we all should know by now, bass sometimes just can't resist flashy colors.
