''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.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth it, I think I have a bit of a love hate relationship with these baits. On the one hand they are not very durable, a couple fish and they are done for. That being said, they seem to have no equal when it comes to getting bites. I have tried similar lures alongside the Caffeine shads only to see my action decrease to near nothing. So I guess if catching fish is the goal, and it is for me, buying them is a great idea! August 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Purchase Ever read alot of good reviews on the bait but didn't believe the hype until i order some, woww were they right i caught 5, 2 lbs bass the first day i used them. the baby bass is the one i like with a weighted hook bass can't resist them July 31, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by More action Works great, casts better & more action than a fluke. Only minus is that it tears easy. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best frickin lure If I had only only one lure to use, this would be it! It catches fish every single time. Very soft plastic which makes it's movements irrestible to fish but, doesn't last long. Fish tear it up. You'll go through a lot of baits but you'll catch a lot of fish. May 31, 2013

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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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?

There is no reason other than to keep the baits separated from each other and formed the way they should be.

Use the lightest color shad that is offered. White would work if it comes in that.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

Anything darker will be best in the stained water. It is opposite of what you would think.

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.
