Strike King Rage Tail Shad Softbait Lures
Great lure to have
This is a great lure. I have caught so many fish on them.The one down fall is the tail tears real easy. I superglue them back closed and that gets me one or two more bass.They might be a little costly but they will catch the bass

Good bait...I was able to get bites when it was real tough. Now the down side the tail breaks off on almost every strike. I had 10 bodies on my deck w/ no tails. Gets bites but be prepared to spend some money!

Waste of time/money
They should take these off the market. I bought two packs of these duds a few years ago. And for two years they have been thrown in a box that stays home when I go fishing. They don't swim properly, they spin,spin and spin. Your line will tangle shortly after casting a few times. I don't know how these people who rate these baits on a high scale, but I have rigged these things several ways and can't get them to stop spinning while reeling them in. Folks in my bass club say the same thing. Maybe I'll try dragging them on the bottom if I have time some day. But I doubt it.

My Grandson got me a package of these Rage Tail Shad for Christmas . Our weather has warmed up some and I was fishing a low tide in the Sacramento Delta and the weed mats were all on the surface . I was fishing a top water along the edges of the weeds for about an hour , I had 2 short strikes but had no fish . I noticed the Rage Tail and thought I would tie it on to see what kind of movement it had on the water . I made 2 cast down along side of the weed edge and I thought what an action , I would have never thought this bait would have so much action and noise . I rigged the bait weedless so I made a few cast over the weeds , on about the 3rd. cast there was a huge blow up and the bait was gone , gone down the throat of a 4lb. bass . I caught 2 smaller fish , still solid keepers . The action slowed down as the tide came in . When I got home I thanked my Grandson for the gift again and he told me he got it at the new BPS in our city . He said the man in the store told him that his Grandpa would really like it . The color was a light colored bottom with a watermelon with black flecks . I will be getting some more real soon . They should really be good this summer .
