  • Perfectly mimics the walleye’s favorite meal
  • 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 custom colors available only from Bass Pro Shops®! Complete with quality, wide-gap trebles to keep fish from coming loose on the way in.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 125 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Took to Canada and preformed better than Rapalas I bought one of these a few weeks ago for my trip to Canada walleye fishing. (Flashy Pink Color) We troll with them in the evenings right before dark. 1st night a couple buddies and went out. I put her on so we could see how it preformed. Landed 14 walleye in 40 min, the other guys landed 5 and 6 using the rapalas. They were very impressed as well as I was. Thew it the next morning casting it to see how it did, and hooked into a pretty big pike that snapped the line... :( I so wish I would have went with my gut and bought 2. 5 stars!! June 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good cranks,good price I am real picky when it comes to shallow divers.I picked up some after a buddy had some success with them at our local lake. 5 minutes in the water and 1st keeper in the boat. Got 2 more the next hr.I've fished the more expensive shadraps and never caught a fish on them. These come with socalled dive tables but if you're using 0 stretch superbraids,you can throw those tables out the window.I troll 3 mph.The 5 cm size won't reach the bottom of 6'. Picked up some 6's to try in 6'-7' trolling depths. Got a couple 7's and they dive way too deep for me. The reason why no 4 stars:The mustad superultra trebles on them will cause you to miss a lot of fish. I swapped them out for "real" bigger trebles and the 6's I just straightened them out. The finish is very durable on the toothy fish.Lots of colors and chrome clown,purple tiger,and blue tiger are performing best. The best feature is snag resistance.Even after swapping out the trebles,the last 5 trips at almost 20 hrs trolling with 2 snags and zero lost cranks.This makes it a good candidate for trolling 6' depth snag infested waters with planerboards. Always good to have it in your saugeye arsenal. BTW: I've caught saugeye, 5 lb channelcat,5 lb flathead,crappie,and tons of dinks on them. June 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flicker Shad Please bring back the BPS proprietaryy color OGP. It works very well on stocker trout in CA reservoirs. May 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Bait! It won't coax dormant fish, but if they're active they crush this bait. Started fishing it two summers ago and have caught walleye, all varieties of bass and even crappie on it. It's great for when you want to just throw something in the water and see what hits. The paint does chip so if you're fishing ledges you may not want to be as aggressive but with the price it almost doesn't matter. April 18, 2014

Staff Answer
A: 
Hi, thank you for your question. Size is another key factor start out small in Spring 2″-2 1/2″ as most forage species spawn in the Spring, walleyes as other predators will take advantage of this feeding opportunity. During the Summer as the forage growth increases the best size is 3″-4.” When Fall arrives and the remaining forage is fully grown use 5″-6″ as walleyes are fatting up for winter.
The best lure color would be to mimic the dominant forage in the waters your fishing. Here is a simple guideline of basic successful colors:
Open Water Suspended Forage: Shad, Shiners, Ciscoes, Alewives, Smelt
Black, Green, Blue, Purple top with Silver sides
Black top with White sides
All Silver Chrome or White

Structure Orientated Forage: Perch, Suckers, Crawfish, Minnows
Black top with Gold sides (Sucker)
Black top with Silver sides (Minnow)
Black top with Orange sides (Perch-Crawfish)
Black top with Green sides with Bars (Perch)
Brown top Orange or Red sides (Crawfish)

Fluorescent Colors: For dark, stained or muddy waters the hot colors work effective, here’s a few top producers.
Dark Green top Chartreuse sides orange belly (Firetiger)
Blue top Chartreuse sides orange belly (Parrot)
Orange top & sides Chartreuse belly (Hot Tiger)
Red Head Chartreuse Body (Clown)

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!

G'day mate pretty easy really if the lure is running off to one direction with your long nose pliers just tweak the tow point in the opposite direction to the swimming side.....Don't be hard at this either as you can loosen the tow point too much which in turn makes the lure harder to tune.......

ok...get some pliars first. tie the lure on and cast it. reel it in pretty fast and if it is swimming too far to the left, then use your pliars and bend the metal eye on the lip of the lure the other way. it usually takes a couple of trys to get it right, but when you figure out how to tune lures then you will have obtained a skill to make all lures swim well ! i had like 6 lures that i knew would catch fish, but would keep jumping out of the water on me and was really mad because i thought i just spent 6 or 7 bucks on something that will never work! but i learned how to tune and all problems solved.

Staff Answer
A: 
Tuning a flicker shad or shad style crankbait is much like tuning any other style of crankbait. Make sure to make changes slowly and at small clips so that you do not overcorrect and have another problem.

The first problem may be with the bill of the bait itself. If the edges are cracked or rough, you may need to sand the bill down just a bit with a nail file.

Also, if any hooks are bent, be sure to straighten these out to normal form.

The third possible way to try is slightly bending the bill of the bait. Be sure not to put to much pressure as this may crack the body of the bait. Bend the bill towards the direction that you want the lure to run.

There are many other tricks to making this process work, but these tend to be the major ones. Expirementation with your baits is one of the quickest remedies because there is no one true fix, and truly, no two baits are alike.

Yep I would get the 4cm models fish them on a very light flurocarbon leader say 4lb on 4lb braid but if the fish are still a bit timid I'd drop down to 3lb leader and slow twitch them back to the boat.....Gold and Rainbow Trout colours very ideal for this and in Australia this combination works well.......

A: 
Yes it sure can. We caught about half of the
specs while in Algonquin Park in Ontario
this past spring. The 3 " lure will run approx 10 to 12 feet depending on how much line is out. I would try it even on lead core or
steel line in the summer after the water warms up and you may need to go a little deeper.

A: 
Trout are carnivorous fish and will take smaller trout fry, minnows, and other small fish prey. The best suggestion when trying to see what the fish will bite is to try and match exactly what the fish eat in the waterway that they are in. Keep in mind that the favorite food of a particular species in one water body may be different than those in other water bodies. An excellent resource to contact about what may be the best to use in your area is your local conservation agent.

MY #1 colour is the "Purple Tiger" but then it depends on the kind of day. On sunny days with very little chop, I would go and try a darker colour, blue tiger. sunset or shad.
Bass are attracted to others as well. The firetiger, chartruese, are other good choices. Just make sure that the water depth is over 12' if trolling as you know these run deep.

I wish there was an easy answer, but unfortunatley theres not. I would have say that the more natural looking cranks are a must have in your tacklebox.

Now with that being said, darker, dirtier, and stained water may require the brighter and more wacky color combinations to produce fish.

If i had to pick only 4 colors to own they would be: blue/silver, black/silver, black/gold, and firetiger. they seem to produce more consistently than any other colors for me.

Best of luck to you! And honestly get as many colors as you can afford because they all have a time and place for catching walleyes ;)
