Cotton Cordell Gay Blade
Best Blade Bait you can buy
I have had so much success with this blade bait. I have caught huge Crappie, Sunfish, Guadalupe Bass, White Bass and Largemouth Bass using this lure. I primarly use this bait when I am fishing on the clear, deep lakes of the Texas Hill Country. You can fish this lure with a straight retrieve or with a jigging/ripping motion for when the fish are not as aggressive or down deep. My favorite size/color is the 3/8 ounce Chrome & Blue. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

Superior to XPS Lazer Blades
If you are trying to decide between these and the Bass Pro Shops XPS Lazer Blades then do yourself a favor and save yourself some time, get the Cordell blades. Besides the name and 50 cent price difference, these Cotton Cordell blades are far superior in quality than the lazer blades. Both the cordell and lazer blade catch fish but the biggest difference between these two is that the cordell blade doesn't get as frequently hung up as the lazer blade. Trust me, the lazer blade gets hung up frequently like 1 in 3 casts you will have to free the lazer from itself...the cordell blade is like 1 in 10 casts. I've tested both to get these ratios...
Pros vs the XPS Lazer Blade:
-Doesn't get hung up as easily or as frequently as
-Casts further (1/4 oz cordell blade vs 1/4 oz lazer blade)
-Colors aren't as easily chipped
Cons vs the XPS Lazer Blade:
-Not as many colors to choose from but you can't go wrong with the chrome/blue in any water condition

I bought this lure a while back and i had it in my tacklebox and never thought to use it, it was about 7:00 when I remembered i had it in there. I got it out when I saw some shad and the bass chasing them. I had tied Chrome Black on and on the 1st cast I got hooked up on a fish. When we weighed it in he ended up being a 41/2 pounder. I have recommened this to my friends. Great Buy.

I live in Niagara falls and bought a few of these for winter smallies. I went out yesterday to the mouth of the niagara into lake Ontario and on the 3rd cast caught a 12lb steelhead. 10 minutes later got another one. All I was doing was jigging it along the bottom and they were killing it.Then the fog came and had to leave. Lure gets tangled with the front hook when your jigging it but just take it off and your good to go. Great action and small and heavy. Great for winter fishing and getting down deep where cranks can't go. I can't wait to get out next week and try again.
