A: 
They are all great because of the rattling noise it makes and how it swims. But the best color would probably be the ones that are very shiny with some blue and red on them. I have about 5 of them and they rack up the fish.

I don't know about this particular lake, but the most productive color for bass anywhere I have fished has been the Gizzard Shad and the Bleeding Gizzard Shad. My next favorite colors have been Chrome Sexy Shad and Chrome with Blue Back.

A: 
When it comes to lipless crankbaits you can't go wrong with any of the chrome colored ones. If you're fishing shallow cover and grass try a red/craw pattern one and rip it out of the weeds. Regardless of where you are in any part of the country or any body of water these basic colors will produce.

A: 
Yes you can, but it won't dive as deep because of the floating properties of braided line. I prefer using this lure with 15 to 17 lb test mono or copolymer lines with a 7' med action rod. In very clear water I'll go to even lighter test line.

I have fished this Lure with monofilament and braid line (Sufix 832) and works Awesome with both. The braid definitely gives you more feedback and faster reaction when working the lure. Also instead of just reeling the lure in - cast and on retrieval about every three to four cranks pop the rod tip twice and Hang On.!. G…

A: 
Absolutely. I prefer monofilament for my crankbaits because of casting distance and how the line stretches when battling a fish. Sometimes braid can tear the hooks from a fish's mouth but if you set the drag properly there is no reason why you couldn't use braided line.

Some people think the visibility of the braided line will spook wary fish but a bait, such as this, retrieved at high speeds should be fine.

I hope this helps.

They will run about 2 to 3 feet down on a steady retrieve. They also work great on the fall, they stay straight up and wiggle all the way to the bottom. My favorite way to fish them is to yo yo them in, by that I let them fall on a slack line reel it up to top and repeat. Bass will hit it on the fall watch the line. Good luck.

A: 
There are many answers to this question - most are that it can go as deep as you need it to go depending on the line and your speed of retreive.
I do not have information on the lures that are best for the KY lake and TN river.

I personally like any of the sexy shads and it is good if you pull it then stop to let it sink down and that is why the rattle is good.

I have fished this Lure in a lake that once was forty plus acres now down to about an acre. I have had Awesome success with the Red Eye Sexy Shad – Chrome Sexy and Red Sexy all with Rattle… Also instead of just reeling the lure in - cast and on retrieval about every three to four cranks pop the rod tip twice and Hang On.!.

Sexy Shad has been the color that has always produced for me here in pooler, ga. I hold the rod tip straight up and real slow. When they are hitting hard i speed up the retrieve.

A: 
Silent is a good option on heavily pressured fish, but that does not mean they won't take a rattle. Do some research on line and find out what kind of bait fish are in the lake. Match the bait with the lure. Crayfish are always on basses menu try crayfish colors. Try different techniques on the retrieve start off fast and work your way to slow, I get a lot of hits with this lure on the drop. Check out the action as it drops it still wiggles and stays upright even when on the bottom... Tight lines!!

The shad patterns work best for whopper bass if you have a good shad population.

A: 
when it comes to pressure Lakes, the puzzle changes daily. The best color is the one the fish prefer that day. It's believed that you should try and match the bait fish and make adjustments from that point. Same goes for technique and yes the silent red eye shad is a good choice. There was a time when a small tackle box and a few of your favorite lures would do the trick, that time has passed. Diversity is the name of the game today.

A: 
You have to "Match The Hatch" if there's shad, use a shad color, like Sexy Shad, or Bone. If water is stained, use the Chartreuse Sexy Shad. Those have worked for me. As far as techniques, you have to vary your retrieve. Don't just chuck and wind. Reel, Reel, pause has worked for me. The bass nornally hit it on the pause.

A: 
Really depends on the natural features of the bank your talking about and where the fish are hiding in those features. For me personally, I tend to stay away from crank baits near the bank because of the increased likelihood of weeds on most of the lakes I fish (not a place for treble hooks). That may not be that big of an issue for you. Possibly a better bet to go with the 1/4 oz but again in really depends.

A: 
That depends on a number of factors. In shallower or really clear water the 1/4 oz might be better, but in reality, let the fish tell you which they prefer. Try both and find out which they are hitting the best.

A: 
I bank fish on Fort Stewart using the 1/2 oz and i have had great results. I have never fished the 1/4 oz just simply because the 1/2 oz catches fish all day for me. I either use a fast or real slow retrieve. I have tried the yo-yo technique but havent came up with anything.

A: 
I like to stick with the 1/2oz size. You can upsize your line to get it to stay shallow or use a higher ratio reel. I like the size of the 1/2 better and it is more versatile to me than the 1/4oz. Upsize line for shallower water and downsize for deeper applications. I fish 1/2oz on 15-17 fluoro typically and I'll go to 30LB braid when grass/cover is around. Hope this helps.
