Strike King Rage Tail Shad Softbait Lures
One Of The Very Best Topwaters You Can Throw
The rage shad is awesome. Though I still love buzzbaits, I have to say this little shad outproduced the buzzer 2 to 1 last year, while being MUCH more weedless than a regular buzzbait. It's heavy, so you can throw it on casting gear quite well. Throw it on at least 12 pound test with a fast ratio baitcast, and you can crawl this thing slowwwww, while still making a great noise. My biggest bass of the year, almost 6 pounds, came on this lure. The strike to hookup ratio is pretty good, and each lure lasts at least 3 - 4 bass before needing replaced. With some mend it and parasite clips, you won't need to use more than a pack or two per year, regardless of how many bass you catch.

When I purchased the Strike King Rage Tail Shad it was still cold. When the fish moved to shallow water and stated hitting topwater lures the Rage Tail Shad worked wonders. The tail action on this lure causes the fish to go crazy.

this soft plastic if very lifelike and can be fished in a few different ways so it is pretty versatile. I like to fish it either on top of the water the way that most people use it and i also use it is i let it sink like a foot then begin reeling and let the tail smack on top of the water fro a bit then let it sink...so it sounds like a shad trying to run from something. Rage tail made a great lure so its a must buy.

First 2 casts and had 2 strikes using the rage tail shad. My wife also got a nice bass the same day using the same lure. Now each of us always have a rage tail shad rigged on 2 of our 8 rods everytime we are fishing
