Rated 5 out of 5 by BartPerdue Excellent Cold Weather Bass Lure Used this lure for the first time today 3/3/07. I have used silver buddies before, but this is a much better lure. I used the all silver version of the lure, have not tried or tested any of the others. I was very impressed by its tight wobble, which produced two keeper largemouth in 37-38 degree surface water temperatures. We found a flat in about 30 feet of water and i bottom bounced the lure to produce the fish. It is also a good lure type to use when vertical jigging over structure as this type seems to hang up less than a silver buddy. I don't know why that was. The flash of this lure is much better than a silver buddy due to the quality finish of the lure. The red hooks are another great feature of this lure, which is better than a silver buddy. My brother used his regular silver buddy with not even a bite. I was able to land 2 keeper largemouth in high winds and choppy water. This lure performs when nothing else is getting any hits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grinny These really work!! I had never used a blade style bait before, but heard it was a deadly tactic for the fall and early season bass fishing. So I bought a few of these to try out. The ice had just melted a week prior so the water was still really cold, I had told my buddy about this style of bait so he bought a few of a different brand. It didn't take long and I spotted some fish on my sonar so we started fishing, and I caught 3 times the number of fish that he did. It didn't matter the color, gold or silver they all worked, they have a great tight wobble in the water, and just slightly jigging them off the bottom worked best for me, give these a try you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BASSPROWANTABE Alternative to a lipless bait I love fishing lipless baits. A couple of years ago I was at a tournament with a boater that asked me not to fish a lipless bait. He swore that a lipless crankbait will scare the fish off after awhile. So, I requested his wishes. After, the tournament I decided to find an alternate lure to use in case I ran into the same situation. I saw these at a bass pro shop and picked up a couple. I put them in my tackle box and forgot about them. Then last year had another tournament and another boater ask that I not use a lipless crank bait. I remembered these baits and started to use them. The first cast I caught a 5 ld bass. After that I only caught 2-3 pounders but I most have caught over 50 fish to my boaters 20 (he begged me for one so I ended up giving him one) ended up with over 16 lb of bass in the tournament good enough for 4th and a nice check. Since, then I will use this bait in clear to semi clear water and use an lipless crank bait in semi to cloudy water. This is a great bait to use just like you use an lipless crank bait.

A:Any fish that feeds on "fry". In our lakes, shad or herring. This past winter, one trip, I caught Strippers, Large mouth Bass, Crappies, and channel cat without moving the boat. This was vertical jigging.
A:ANYTHING THAT SWIMS
I CATCH BASS, CRAPPIE, WHITE BASS, GASPER GOOS, CATFISH. I JIG IT UP AND DOWN AND THE VIBRATION ATTRACTS ALL KINDS OF FISH
A:Bass or anything that will go after a baitfish imatation. Runs through water like lipless crankbait.
A:We jig the 1/2 oz version for walleye and yellow perch
A:LM and SM Bass, Crappie and the small one should be able to catch bream (bluegill) and possibly trout.
A:Stripers, White Bass, Spotted Bass, Largemouth
A:I have caught a ton of White Bass, Hybrid Bass, large/small mouth and spotted bass!
A:The actual color changes so much with the available light that the images are only a transient image. Holographic design ?
A:NO, THEY ARE BETTER. THEY ARE EXCELLENT AND ALL TYPES OF FISH LOVE IT
A:Length depends on the weight. 1/2" ounce is about 1 1/2" in. or little less.
A:THE LENGTH IS IN PROPORTION TO THE WEIGHT. IT IS LISTED ON THE BASS PRO WEB PAGE . AS I RECALL 5/8 OZ WAS 2 1/2 INCHES, THE 1/4 OZ IS ABOUT 1 1/2 INCHES.
I USE THE 5/8 MOST OF THE TIME AND IT WORKS GREAT IT IS ABOUT 3 INCHES LONG
A:I use the 1/2 OZ which runs about 2-1/2" to 3" including the feather. It is about the size of your average shad.
A:They very from 1.5" to 2.5".
1/4oz = 1.5"
1/2oz = 2"
5/8oz = 2.5"
Details:I noticed comments about the fact there are three holes you can move your tie to. How does moving to each hole affect the movement of the lure? Does it affect depth? Help!
A:The front hole puts out the least wibration and the last one the most
A:holes change vibration found center hole most used depends how agressive the feed depth no
A:I use the holes to control the depth that I want to fish the lure. The farest hole from the front will make the lure ride the surface, with more vibration.(you can even make it form a wake which can drive fish nuts.) The closest one to the front of the lure will make the lure go deeper about 6 to 8 ft depending on line and how fast you reel in the line and will have less vibration. I find this great when fishing deeper weeds and want to yank the lure out of some weeks to get a reaction strike. And the middle hole will make the lure go from 3 to 6 feet.
A:IT HAS VERY LITTLE AFFECT FOR VERTICLE JIGING LIKE I DO. IT MAY AFFECT THE DIVING ANGLE IF YOU USE IT FOR CASTING.
I REPLACE THE SNAP IT COMES WITH WITH A SPLIT RING FOR ADDED STRENGTH. I USE THE FRONT TWO HOLES FOR VERTICLE JIGING AND IT IS A GREAT LURE FOR ALL FISH
A:The front hole is used for casting & retrieveing. The middle and back holes are used more for jigging.
A:It affects the action of the lure. In the most forward hole the action will be tighter than the rear hole. It will also affect the action of the lure when being pumped upward while jigging up and down. To affect the depth while casting and retrieving you should count the lure down to the desired depth before beginning your retrieve. The lure will fall at a rate of about one foot per second.
Details:i live here in new jersey,,i recently just started fishing fresh water again,,how do i know which color lure to use,,or is it a trial and error process,,i mean there are alot of colors to chose from...
A:I USE IT FROM 10 TO 50 FEET VERTICLE JIGING. I USE ALL COLORS BUT FEEL IT IS THE VIBRATING AND ACTION THAT WORKS OVER COLOR. I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY CAN SEE AT 50 FEET, BUT ALL COLORS ARE GREAT AND THEY CATCH EVERYTHING THAT SWIMS
i had same thought here in Australia when purchasing lazer blade for our aussie bass and saltwater species . I went with gold colour witch proved a good choice.
A:What are your baitfish present? That is the question. You really can't go wrong with either silver or gold in the combinations. I personally think the Gold/Chartreuse combination is a great one, but I have been alongside another guy throwing Silver/Black and we had equal hookups. I think the Chartreuse is great for poor water conditions.
A:I have only used the nickel/black, gold, and nickel, however i can tell you this bait catches fish. I have had the most luck on the nickel and the nickel/black. I have had some fish on the gold but not as many. You never know what you will catch. I would use the nickel or nickel/black and see what they does for you. I fish this bait about 1' off the bottom so it will get caught in the bottom so watch out! Good luck!
A:Day in and day out, solid gold out produces every other color I've tried. Go with it and trust it will put fish in the boat.
A:you could try matching the hatch(picking the color of natural forage) but if I were you , the best color is just simply shiny and chrome.
