''The new Perfect Plastics are awesome! Great body styles combined with the added attraction of our new Coffee Scent and a plastic that is unlike anything else you've ever fished, you're sure to catch more and bigger fish!''
Kevin VanDam - 2008 BASS Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year

Strike King's Caffeine Shad offers a unique bubble tail to give this topwater shad bait an awesome action that's never been seen before. Offering the world's best blend of soft plastic ingredients, the Caffeine Shad contains large amounts of salt and coffee scent. This deadly combination keeps the Caffeine Shads soft and pliable, while increasing the Caffeine Shad's appeal by masking human scents and making fish hold the bite longer for increased hook-ups. Rig weightless and twitch for an awesome topwater bite or fish it on a Carolina rig or jig head for that deep water bite.
Strike King® KVD Perfect Plastics Caffeine Shads 4.6 5 60 60
KVD Strike king perfect plastics I saw Kevin using these baits in a how to video. I really liked the action on them. I knew the bass would be tempted to the limits. I took my daughter Holly with me and she caught 8 and one close to 5 lbs. I caught this guy and he destroyed the bait both the head and tail gone. Later we would catch one over 8 lbs but that's another story. So do I think these baits are good I'm buying all the ones I can find because fishing has just started. April 11, 2014
Great action I use the Caffeine Shads and Zoom Super Flukes for most of my soft jerkbaiting. Though the Super Flukes are a staple, the Caffeine Shads offer more action in the tails...especially when burned near the surface. On an unweighted setup with an EWG hook, the Caffeine Shad sinks horizontally and offers a bit of tail action on the fall. This bait also skips better than Super Flukes. However, the Caffeine Shads are not as durable as Super Flukes. The softer plastic doesn't seem to last as long as the Zooms. But there are times when bass seem to prefer the coffee scent over the Zoom's non-scented plastic, however. Both serve their purpose at times, but Strike King has better color choices. The Baby Caffeine Shad in KVD Kick color typically gets the nod as my first choice in clear waters. December 17, 2013
Best Plastic Jerk Bait Not sure why I started using the Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics but glad I discovered them. They glide like a wounded minnow and I never used a plastic bait the fish reacted by swallowing it so deep that the only release was to cut the line. They smell so good I'd eat them. Give them a little twitch and the fish find them like live bait or swim them along with a twitching patient retrieve. For deeper water try a split shot 12 to 18 inches above the bait. Big smallmouth bass love them in river or lakes. A can't miss presentation. October 24, 2013
KVD Caffeine Shads Ater using Slug-Go's for several years I started looking around for something a little different to show our local bass. Enter KVD Caffeine Shads in Smokey Shad color. Bass seem to love these things as they have great action on the move or on the fall. I never go out without one of these rigged and ready! A great product that really produces. October 12, 2013

A: 
I use mono line and weightless hooks. They will sink, but very slowly. I use mainly around the banks and grass. I did let one slowly sink about 10 feet and a big 41/2 lb. bass smacked it good This is my favorite lure especially in the grassy shallows.

A: 
These jerkbaits are best rigged on an extra wide-gap hook (EWG). Depending on the size of the bait, anywhere from a 3/0-5/0 size hook will suffice. Most use it as an unweighted rig with an EWG hook or as a carolina rig bait with either an EWG hook or offset worm hook. You can also use a belly-weighted hook to make it sink faster or for use on the bottom. They're also good on shakey head jigs for finesse fishing on bottom.

I use a Gamakatsu 3/0 EWG. The hook slots on the caffeine shads are deep so these seem to work fine. Buy plenty of hooks & shads if you fish ''pikey'' lakes.

4/0 or 5/0 CPS Owner hook. The smaller spring lock helps preserve the head and will make the lure last approximately 4-5 fish before having to replace it.

Details: 
I have bought several packs of Caffeine Shad and about half of them come with a plastic liner inside holding the jerkbait closer while the other half do not come with that plastic liner? The ones that do not have a plastic liner, are more greasier and I have noticed that they catch more fish than the pack that contains the plastic liner which are not as greasy and are lighter in color. What is that plastic liner for and why do some come with it while others do not?

I like the Smokey shad and the bass color. I think the caffeine smell also helps the bass locate the bait. Just have to experiment a bit and see what happens.

In Colorado, I had very similar conditions to what you described - muddy water with about a foot of visibility. We were backlit with bright sunlight one day and cloudy skies the next. In both sunlight conditions, the Baby Bass color worked extremely well.

In dark water you want to use dark colors like blacks, blues and purples. Chartruese, white and other bright colors work well too. stay away from the natural colors in muddy water.

A: 
I would say the lighter the color the better. in darker water you need a bait that has a good visual presentation as well as Audio presentation. The bass will more likely go for a white or pearl color rather than a dark color in murky/ darker water.
