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.

by Luis629 Excellent performance from a soft plastic
A friend of mine introduced me to this Perfect Plastics shad pattern when going for largemouth on his private lake. At first glance, they look like pretty much any other plastic, but the bass sure didn't seem to think so. We easily hauled in 20+ piece each over 3 hours of fishing near the bottom by the natural cover in the lake. Quite a few 2-3 lb. fish made for a lot of fun and he's hauled in some 5+ lb. fish on this same lure. As others have already pointed out, they are not terribly durable and you can expect that your Texas rig won't hold a weedless hook setup after a few strikes, but that's a small price to pay for such and effective lure. I've bought some of my own since that very successful day fishing with this pattern in baby bass color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by w111yb111y good lure
the complaints about this lure tearing to easily are true but i gotta say this lure is pretty good.the action when u jerk it and on the fall is killer.i live in upstate ny n alot of our lakes have LOTS of weeds.this thing is awesome for covering alotta weedy water. i tested this lure out a cpl times n i was killin the it while everyone else was catchin nothing. i ended up using up all of my baits cuz i was catchin so many fish.all in all i wish the lure was tougher but if thats the sacrifice i gotta make to catch some fish so be it.im gettin 6 more packs

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fisherman223 not the best soft jerkbait
I have had so much success on soft jerkbaits from Zoom, Big Bite and YUM recently that I wanted to experiment and give these a try. I did catch several fish on these and I do like them because they sink much faster than a Super Fluke or Houdini Shad. They were also very soft in texture and obviously had the coffee scent. But the one thing I didn't like about these was the durability. Every fish was costing me one of them and by the end of the day I almost went through the whole pack. And for over $5 a pack you would expect more then that. Although they do catch fish, they don't perform much better then the Super Flukes. I can get the flukes for about $3 a pack and I get more of them. Bottom line: good lure, but stick with the flukes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassfishin22 Great Action
I was fishing at a pond down the street from me and I decided to try out this lure. I had my doubts but once I saw the action of this bait, a huge largemouth grabbed it . I fish it in the thickest cover and it never gets caught. The only disadvantage is that they fall apart a lot.
