Scented with Berkley's proven PowerBait attractant
Size: 5'' long; 3 pack
Berkley's PowerBait Flatback Shad baits are ideal for anglers looking for a shad style soft bait that has the shimmering appeal to draw attention from large freshwater predators such as walleye, pike, bass and more. Producing a strike-provoking vibrating action few fish will refuse, the Flatback Shad's multi-colored, laminate body and tail creates the illusion of a live baitfish. Plus, it never hurts to have the fish-attracting PowerBait advantage on your side. Size: 5'' long. 3 pack.

I rig these on a minnow style 1-1.5oz jig head and fish them from 15-30 feet deep in the summer for bass with great success!

I started using these last season and found that when a fish eats this they mean business. I have caught fish from 11 inches to 4 pounds on local lakes and have never had a short strike on one. Every fish I have caught has inhaled this bait, and it will catch largemouth, pike and walleye.

I fished this on my A-rig. I use the rainbow trout pattern because of the trout that are stocked in so many of my state's lake. I use a 3/8 ounce bullet jig head which is to small but I don't want to have to much weight on the already heavy A-Rig. The swim bait has a good action that should catch fish. But I really don't know because the only time I fished it was in the spring, when a multiple bait rig might not work as well.

I realize this is for freshwater predators, but I wonder if anyone would recommend this or another Berkeley fish-shaped Gulp bait for saltwater shore fishing for salmon in the Puget Sound. I'm curious about trying a more durable "real" fish (i.e., Not a spoon, jig, etc.) than herring.
One of two reasons I bought this type was because the rainbow trout color looks like a herring. The other is for the states stocked rainbow trout. But I really did buy this for that coloring. I also bought an A-rig for it to match a school of herring, even my neighbor who has fished for a very long time approved it for trolling. But I would definitely not use this with a flasher even if you are a flasher person. The lure already has an action to it with the tail. Which I guess means that I do recommend this to you if you are hoping to use it.
