White Bass Killer & then some
I Been Testing a lot of different Lip-less rip Baits that get More Bites .. We Troll For White Bass and Walleyes In Shallow water Most of the time ..In My testing where there are Smaller bait fish Shad ( Under an Inch In size ) My find that Higher Pitch smaller BB's Work better as This Rippin Rap as.. Also the Shape is Closer to the Natural Shape of the shad as well..The thinner Body make it Shake it more with the Hooks Placement Being closer together Better Hook Ups Thank You VMC Hooks as Well .. Can't Wait ti Try the UL size In the Spring ...

Jack the Ripper! Shad.
Not sure how the one reviewer can say "bait has no weight buts casts fairly decent." That's a contradiction. Bait is plenty loud maybe too loud for my application b/c no hits yet. Great distance, vibration,flash. Looks just like a scaled sardine (pilchard), which is a favored live bait here. Flashes exactly like one also when jigged with rod tip on retrieve. Silent version might be good in circumstances-clear water, non-feeding fish, etc. Not currently in my box though.

Good for many different species
I received the chrome moss back shiner and went to the local river to try it out. First thing I noticed was that it was very easy to cast long distances. I tried reeling in with a constant speed and was only getting a few bites. Then I tried jerking it and then letting it drop. This technique received a lot more action. Overall, this lure is very versatile and can be used for many different species of fish.

This is one of my utmost favorite cranks. It has a totally different action on the drop, more of a level shimmy instead of nose diving. first timing using this bait it hauled in 4 smallies of the 2-5 lbs. range in less the 45 min...all while letting it drop on semi taught line. Vary the cadence of the rip and drop to find what the fish like more it can change from day to day even hour to hour.
