STORM Kickin' Stick Swimbait
I recently received 2 of these for father's day and they have turned out to be one of the best gifts I have gotten. I recently took them out to my 3 favorite farm ponds and absolutely owned the bass that day! It is averaging about 103 in OK during June/July and it was brutally hot. The action and overall appeal of this bait however was not hindered in the least by the temps. I got bites all day long on this bad boy. I had a lot of success varying the retrieve on each cast. I recommend really mixing it up and let the fish tell you how they like it best. Although I have only been fishing once since I got them, I did not lose one fish once I got a hook in them, the big trebles were awesome and the action was unique.

I use all the sizes of this bait, just keep in mind the 8 inch version is huge! Especially for a souther angler like me. I use the 5 and 6 inch for bass, and the 8 incher mainly for stripers. I love to reel it steady and then kill it and push my rod toward the bait to throw slack in the line, it does a complete 180 and drives fish nuts!

Great swimming action
The kickin shad has great swimming action. It looks so real that fish can't just watch it go by. I use a slow retrieve and bass and pike hammer it. It is a little bit on the pricy side, but catches a lot of fish. I would recommend this for walleye, bass, pike, and musky fishing.

this is the second one of these guys i have baught because the first one i had, i broke off with two bass on each ends of it. the swimming action is very good with this bait and i get lots of hits using it, the only thing i loose some fish during the fight than most other hard swim baits. maybe i am not just setting the hooks true in the beginning. i have 3 of the colors though and the fish like i say hit them all with great agression.
