Gambler Flapp'n Shad
I've had mixed results with these. I prefer the 4" version.

Smoking White bass Bait
When the fishing gets tough in the tailwaters of the Bagnell Dam at the Lake of the Ozarks the fish go deep. Throw a 1/2 oz swim head jig on with this bait in the bleeding shad color and expect results! When the water slows down take the jighead off and fish it on top or shallow in the current and it is back in the action.

What a bait!
This Flappin' Shad is great, i use it all year round on all bodies of water! This bait works great with a walk-the-dog action, and if that isn't turning the fish on, i let it sink naturally and flutter just under the surface, this will all ways trigger good strikes! I enjoy using this lure on hot summer days for Largemouth and even in early spring for shallow Walleye! This lure works great for Pike too, they really chew these baits up good! Grab a pack and you will love them, Cheers!

Wow! Walk the dog!
I bought a pack of these on impulse, like most of us do from time to time. I sensed that the big tail would give it a bit different action from the standard jerk baits. Wow! Was I ever more right! This thing almost looks more like an injured or dying minnow than the real thing, if you rig it right! It "walks the dog" with great ease if you hook it Texas style, with the hook just below center (as with a worm). My buddy in the boat with me took notice as I twitched it, and he's a long time and very good fisherman himself. He said, "Gimme one'a them thangs! That thing looks GOOD!" Just experiment if you have to, on how you hook it, and you'll walk the dog like an old pro, and believe me, the fish will notice too! Oh! I guess you could say I love this bait, too, if you haven't gathered that. Thanks, Gambler, for one heckuva' bait!
