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 create the illusion of a live baitfish. Plus, it never hurts to have the fish-attracting PowerBait advantage on your side.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile paddletail Obvoiously there are may ways to rig this but I do find that a 3/4-1oz bullet style jig head does work best rigged through the side and not through the top. Doug Stange style. For most lakes, I find the realistic nature of hudds are not worth the costs pound for pound unless you are on super clear lakes. This is a great, affordable option that you do not have to be scared to throw around wood, docks, etc. Remember to use the right gear, and learn how to fish swimbaits...don't just swim them haphazardly. This is a great option for all levels of swimbait slingers. September 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deep water search bait 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! April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Inhaler 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Bait! 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. April 2, 2012

A: 
This TOTALLY depends on what type of presentation you are after and the depth range you want to fish. The faster you fish it to keep it down you will need a heavier weight. To fish it slower and shallower, go to a lighter head.

As with any situation clear days require a more natural which might be the black and white. But on darker days a brighter one would be more helpful.

Not really. These are much softer baits and don't tend to stand up to aggressive strikes by Pike.

Details: 
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.

A: 
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.
