LIVETARGET® Golden Shiner
I'm not one for spending ten dollars or more on a lipless crankbait, especially when Strike King has $5 models that are deadly, but when I saw the detail on these, I had to try one. It's got a fast sink rate and a very tight wobble, and it takes all I've got on a 7:3 burner to keep it above the grass along the channel leading to the spawning coves on my secret spot, but this lure is magic and will pull twenty fish out of a school before they get used to it. Super sharp. smaller hooks are nice, too. I've got the silver blue and have taken well over 100 bass in three outings on this crank. Worth every cent.

I bought this on a whim because I thought it looked like a real fish (in spite of the higher cost). Well suffiice to say I took about 6 decent size smallmouth Bass (while everyone else around was grabbing the small ones on other lures) in just over 4 hours last And I'm the furthest thing from a bassmaster as you can get. It seems to work at all retrieve speeds and was super resitant to snagging rocks in the shallows at the dam.
Definitely will be picking up a few more of these for this weekend!!!
The only downside seems to be the same bane of any crankbait I use at the rocky shallows at the dam and that's after about 10 casts the paint/finish on the head gets beaten off but I gotta admit after several hours of use it was the least worn off of all the cranks I used there.

My Go To Lure
The Golden Shiner has become my go to lure this Winter/Spring! I've caught 20+ 3lb and up bass in the last two months on this lure. I've fished with people using other lipless crankbaits and out fished them 3 or 4 to 1. I use the Yellow and Black one
