Strike King Rocket Shad
"Go To Bait"
I always have one of these tied on to one of my rods. I have 1/4's , 3/8's, and 1/2 oz of these. I live in Massachusetts. I can catch largemouths, smallmouths, crappie, big pickerell, yellow perch, and huge bluegills on these baits. While I do agree, that the double hook does come off, I have found that a smartly bent piece of paperclip in place of the flimsy rubber O-ring works great. Still working on the problem of the skirt getting chewed & falling off, but thinking the same technique could be used. (tiny cable tie?). I recommend this bait, for those who don't mind using up one everytime they go out. At the price, against fish caught, I think it is a fair deal.
This bait is very versatile. I have caught bass, burning it, slow rolling it, slow bounce & retrieve from the bottom, & even vertical jigging for small mouths. >>>>>>BC66

Catches Trout Too
The Rocket Shad has produced very well for me for years, it has landed its fair share of largemouth, smallies, and panfish. I tried it out on my last trout trip and was surprised how well it produced trout out of the Colorado river. It will cast a mile and it runs excellent with no line twist. It can be fished on top or down deep for a variety of species. If your having a slow fishing day try one of these and your luck may change.

Rocket Shad "ROCKS"
I have had the best luck with this lure! I hail from CA where fishing is kind of versatile. I have landed many fish with it. Large and small mouth bass, Trout and crappie. The first time I used it was in a small lake in the middle if town and caught a 1 1/2 pound crappie. Great lure, I caught that trout on it!
