"These have been working well over the weed beds rigged weightless. So far only small bass but the success rate is high. Only complaint is that they are fragile, after a couple fish they are tore up. But hey, they work so I am still a fan."

"This is my go-to bait with fishing in Virginia for largemouth and when I go to Florida and fish for reds and speckled trout. Fished weightless it is great for winter fishing...I amazed my Florida friend by catching largemouth on Valentines Day with this bait--and he's a Virginia native!"

"I love these jerk shads. They have great action and they can be rigged any number of ways, my favorite being Texas rigged. I've also used them on both jigs and drop shot rigs with great results.
Berkley makes a crazy legs version of this bait that is also a huge producer. What I have done with these jerk shads is, using scissors, cut the split in the tail longer to look like the crazy legs version. It has helped in certain situations where a little more action makes all the difference.
It's a shame that many reviews are showing durability as a negative. These are soft biodegradable bodies that are much softer than regular soft plastics, so they tend not to last as long as other soft plastics. This is actually a positive and not a negative. Fish can "chew" on these longer and don't seem to spit them out as fast as other soft baits. This is tremendously important where a finesse touch is key and it buys a little time to do a hook set.
Many reviews have also compared these to Zoom Super Flukes and the only thing they really have in common is a similar body shape. Other than that, they are worlds different.
For the softest, most life-like feel with excellent scent dispersal, my favorite is the Gulp Jerk Shad. Great in tough conditions where finesse is key!"

A: 
actually i use a good size swivel i forget the size but it lets it sink at a slower speed then a lead weight on it. If i'm fishing deeper water like around 15-20 ft i put a split shot on the line for a faster sink speed.

What color?

Details: 
I fish in golf course lakes and ponds. I heard that these are great freshwater soft plastic baits. In the ponds I fish in there are bass and bluegill. Which color would be great for either one of them?

Pretty much all of them would work but if I were you I would choose either #4, #10, or #99. Those colors represent your ponds natural forage.

I would use a Gamagatzu 4 or 5 with this shad, if you use anything smaller, you will not get the hook sets you need.
