Separate body sections joined by tough, thin strips
True multi-jointed swimming motion
Garlic- and salt-impregnated
Fine scale detail
Top slit plus belly channel
The Live Magic Shad from Lake Fork Trophy Lures is the ultimate live-action swimbait! Made from soft plastic and impregnated with garlic, the technically advanced design of the Live Magic Shad mimics the swimming motion of a fleeing baitfish when retrieved. No matter how the Magic Shad is rigged, weightless, Texas, Carolina, drop shot, wacky, nail or on a jighead, the Live Magic Shad draw thunderous strikes no matter their mood.

The magic shad is great both as a swimbait on a weighted hook and as a chatterbait trailer. I recently placed high in a tournament using the magic shad phenix vib jig combo.

Glad to see somebodiy is cathing something with these. I'm not. Gave em a decent try up here in the north east and nothing. No follows from blue gills even. My Jersey bass got a taste for those zoom baits though.

Ok, everyone fishes different areas and has their own techniques right? Well, I have fished all over Texas, as well as used this bait recently in some tournaments where I was not doing so well up until now. And I have to say, this bait has made a difference and is one of the better swim baits on the market. Durable, life like, and from my experience bass can't resist, even in the heat we are experiencing now. If you have swimbaits, or want to try one, I would suggest giving this a shot, in my opinion you will be hooked as I was.

Buy em! I rig it on the 1/4 oz scrounger head the most. But if your in grass use the lake fork hooks. The 3.5 uses a 3/0 the 4.5 uses a 5/0 the 5.5 uses a 7/0 and the giant 8 uses a 10/0. Hope this helps
Hi,, I use the owner twist lock swimbait hooks in 3/0 and an eight of an oz weight. These are for the 3.5" and for the 4.5" use the 4/0 size hook. you cant fish these wrong.. Use bait casting or spinning.
It depends on which size bait you are talking about and what species you are targeting. I use 3/0 or 5/0 weighted swimbait hooks, mostly 5/0 because I fish primarily for largemouth... and as their name implies they can easily take a 5/0 wide gap hook. If you want to fish for multiple species, use the 3/0.
They don't in the package. But a swimbait hook that has a bottom mounted weight is the absolute BEST to use with this lure. The Gamakatsu swim bait hooks are the best to use with this lure. Just pick your size.
certain ones do. ive bought packs of 1 before they come pre rigged, or you can buy a pack of five shads, and go to the hook section and lake fork made a hook weighted at the bottom of the hook made just for the magic shad.
