Bass Pro Shops XPS Professional Series Hardbaits - Minnow
I was fishing for stripers and I saw a lot of bait fish jumping and I decided to use this lure. I got a 24 inch striper. This lure is great. It has great action. Reel it in fast, medium, or slow and you can even give it some twitches. I prefer the Ghost Shad for stripers and also since I am fishing saltwater. You could switch the hook because the ones that come with the lure are a bit cheap but it's overall a great lure!!!
PS. It's much cheap than Yo-Zuri, Rapala, etc.

Great smallmouth bait
I recently took a trip to lake St. Clair for smallmouth. I was having some success, catching a few bass here and there. My buddy,then started to catch some fish on a jerkbait. So I decided to tie on a jerkbait as well. I tied on a Bass Pro XPS 35 suspending jerkbait, in the color clown. Within a cast or two I started pulling in bronzeback after bronzeback. Fish cannot resist this bait when it is paused then you give it a couple jerks, and the bait darts and twitches erraticly. This is most definetly the best suspending jerkbait I have ever used. Needless to say, my buddy was asking if I had another one of those Bass Pro XPS jerkbaits. It just so happened that I did, and we both had a memorable day on the lake, thanks to Bass Pro XPS series hardbaits.

Compare them to the japanese lures !!!
These baits have a great suspend, a great swimming motion, react as quick as a flash on twitches en jerks, and cast well.
But the most surprising thing is, how they look like great quality expensive Japanese lures, and how they work as well as them !!!
Great realistic finish and great stability on the pause ! That's all !!
My favorite colors are Ghost, shad and gold/black back.
I use the 3" 1/2 length model only.

Troll or cast - quality lure
I live in Tasmania, Australia - a reknown trout fishing haven.
The XPS pro series hardbait is extremely realistic in appearance and action. Great for trolling or casting. A quality lure that is a must for all tackle boxes. Don't be scared to throw the big minnows at 'em: the big trout love 'em.
