Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fish Catcher Berkeley Swim Shad is an awesome bait for fresh or salt water fish... Buy some and see... March 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great bait, hook sleeve not so much man this has to be the best fish catching bait out there... seems to catch a fish every time your bait hits the water... yes i have had the eye issue as others have as well, but i have no complaint in that department cuz it still catches fish regardless... my only complaint is that durn plastic sleeve over the hook.. i mean come on really there is no need to have these on here... i would give it 5 of 5 stars if it didn't have the hook sleeve... February 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing swimbaits I brought a couple packs of these in the early spring and caught countless muskies on them the baits are great quality and hold up really well and the muskies love them for the price they cant be beat in the world of muskie fishing October 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the $$ I have these in the 6" model - 3 big 'ol swimbaits for under $5... are you kidding me?? It's a no brainer. Buy some. Use these instead of the ridiculous Storm Angry Thumpin' Fish or whatever the heck it's called. July 19, 2013

A: 
Try to reel it in so the tail kicks just above the bottom. You can also try jigging it, swimming it, and then let it sit and repeat. That is what has given me the best results with these swimbaits.

A: 
Let the fish dictate how to fish them. My suggestion is to reel them very slowly occasionally snapping the rod. If you have windy conditions, cast it directly into the wind (using a light monofilament for a slow sink rate), let it sink to the bottom, lift the bait and reel a couple times, let it go back to the bottom. Bass and crappie will hit them as it drops so your line will just feel heavy when you lift your rod. No need for a big hook set...they typically inhale the bait. For me, SLOW is the answer.

A: 
Yes, yes, yes.

There really is no wrong way to fish them. You can pitch or flip them, swim them or bounce them off the bottom. The tail has enough action in them that it puts off alot of vibration

A: 
This is a question that EACH of us anglers have asked, and why the lure industry is so lucrative.

The color you want to use is going to depend on 2 things primarily, but other factors come into play as well...

1. The type of water whether it's clear or stained. If a fish can't see it, they won't bite it. A good rule of thumb is to use a bright color for stained, and a less colorful for clear. (Keep it natural.)

2. Try to choose a lure that looks as close to the baitfish in the water as you can. The fish are not going to go for something that looks out of place.

Take it out of the package and tie it on.
When taking the lure out of the fish's mouth, use the metal rather than the plastic because it will tear if too much force is used to dislodge from the fish.

A: 
Theese baits are pre-rigged and ready to go. The only thing you have to do is pull off a piece of clear tubing off the hoook, easier said than done. I wish the tube was shorter, going around the hook causes it to catch the barb when pulling it off.

3" white with a green tail or the "firetiger"
are completely sold out in this area. There are no flats around here but the baits catch anywhere from two feet along the banks to six and eight feet in the bay. Good luck and happy fishing.

A: 
Absolutely. Catch them all the time. I like to use a 3" and the 4" size. If fish are busting bait, then I use the 4" to minimize catching rat reds and small trout. I've caught slot reds and speckled trout and even gator trout with both sizes. White, Black and white, and gold and chartreuse are my three favorite color combinations. Speckled trout and redfish like swimming irratic retreive. Founder like slow, slow, slow on the bottom retreive.
