Strong hook attachments and a wide range of colors
Quality wide-gap trebles
Studies have shown that walleye will single out small shad even when they have other forage available to them. That partly explains why, since its introduction just a few years ago, the Flicker Shad has become one of the most productive trolling baits of our time. Its size, profile, action, and diving depth perfectly mimic the walleye’s favorite meal, and its top-line componentry gives you a bait tuned to run correctly right out of the package. The Flicker Shad features strong hook attachments and a wide range of colors—including 11 custom colors available only from Bass Pro Shops®! Complete with quality, wide-gap trebles to keep fish from coming loose on the way in.
Gary Parsons comments on our 11 Custom Flicker Shad Colors: “I felt these select colors NEEDED to be tried in our northern waters. After a year of hard testing, these are the colors I’m recommending—definitely some of the BEST EVER for our type of fishing!”

I have had this lure since last trout season. It is still catching them. I have the 1/8 weight in firetiger and the trout just attack this lure. Great action, great sound and great hooks. I noticed this season the trout would bump the lure sometimes, so I just reeled it a little faster and "boom" they were back on. Overall this is one of my top trout lures. Good luck to you.

Flicker shad will always catch fish. You must be careful because they will stick you in a heart beat. I buy alot of lures from Bass Pro Shop, but if you keep raising your prices I will have to go online.

Use flicker shads to troll for walleye with lead core line. Constantly catch quality fish. The only thing I did was change the front treble hook and put a red one on to simulate a wounded bait fish.

Worked great catching bass, crappie, and northern pike. But found the hooks to be a bit frail. Several hooks were bent by bass and northern, requiring them to be replaced.

I just bought the 2 3/8" version with the Chatruese Pearl, Purple Tiger, and the Black Silver colors. I am mainly targeting Bass, Saugeye, and Pike....although the lake (Alum Creek) that I fish know is known for Muskies.
When using the flicker shad, you will most likely be targeting Walleye, Bass and Saugeye. However Muskie, Pike and Carp MAY bite on it. My current Flicker Shad is in the "Shad" color, and is 1/2 oz. I went out today (April 7th, 2013) in VERY cold condition (Living in Chicago) and caught 2 great bass. Good luck and have fun!
