Bass Pro Shops XPS McShad Hardbaits
A Must Have
I bought this shad for the first time years ago, I didn't have too much hope for it just figured I would give it a try...well long story short I will never hit the water without at least one of these in my box. I always go with the XXX Shad when fishing Pike in the spring/early summer. My fishing buddies would laugh at first when I would refuse to use anything else (something larger) when targeting large northerns all until they sat in the boat watching me pull in large northerns one after another. Give it a try, I can just about promise you you will catch fish if you put yourself in decent locations. I do wish they could put some better hooks on it but for the amount/size of fish it catches, i have no problem always having at least 3 with me at all times. it runs at about 5 feet consistently with a nice tight wobble and honestly works great for trolling...there I gave up my best kept secret

Awesome action, great price
I love this lure. It has a unique profile and fishes like a jerkbait with a great flash/wobble. It is a light lure, so you have to be careful while casting against the wind. I've also smacked one into a rock and shattered it, but I can't knock the durability for something that was my fault. Also, I think the hooks are pretty sharp. I've never had an issue like other reviewers.
I've caught white bass, hybrids, LM, SM, gar, and even a carp on these. I love the XXX and chrome colors the most.

Went fishing with a friend of mine, and he had a couple of these baits, in his tacklebox. I used the XXX SHAD color, on Lake Mohave, and caught a couple of good largemouth bass, between 2 - 4 lbs.
The bait has a tight wiggle, and runs true, straight out of the box. The color selection, is great. This bait is great, for the price.
I use the XPS Series lures, on a regular basis, and you can't go wrong, with any of them. This is a must have, for Crankbait fishing.
