''I'll use the 1/4 oz Red Eye in grass that's real thick or real shallow water. It's also a good fall (autumn) bait. In the backs of the creeks in autumn, there can be a lot of real small bait, and the 1/4 size better matches that. Also when there's thick grass that grows within two feet of the surface, the 1/2 oz size can get caught up too easily in that. However, the 1/4 oz will not hang up, especially if you use it with heavy line. The tournament proven Redeye Shad is one deadly lipless crankbait.''

I caught over 20 bass last month on this lure. The Sexy Shad color is amazing! It drives the bass nuts!

These smaller crankbaits have a tendency to attract bass when their less aggressive. Not bad for catching crappie also

I was never big into crankbaits. I watched a video with these, and decided to give them a try. They have been slaying the bass in my area. They work on a steady retrieve, and also the stop and go retrieve. It seems like I can't really go wrong no matter how I retrieve it.

I took a photo of area shad back in January. I bought the Gizzard shad color as it was the closest match to the baitfish I have seen in my area's waters. I wasn't looking at brands when I was shopping, just closest color match. Took it out for the first time this weekend to Banner Marsh and caught and 18" large mouth within the first few casts. I actually got to watch the bass aggressively come up and take this just before I had it completely reeled in. Triggered some aggressive action for the waters still being quite cold around me.
Unfortunately, I had this bait taken from me a few casts later. I hooked a muskie and my 12lb flouro leader wasn't quite up to the challenge. I was upset, because this was one of the most fun lures I have in my tackle box to fish with. I love the action and prefer the feel and rattle over the Rat'l traps. I am going back and getting 2 more of these and a few of its larger siblings. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a versatile lure.
