    i bought some storm wildeye shad they are already weighted and hooked...... VERY SHARP HOOKS

    and they are 4 inches long, and dont have the split tail... they have the other style

    and they are the shad color


    what all would these work for...

    walleyes?
    stripers?
    bass?
    pike?


    Thanks in advance
    Jeff

    I love that bait. It's my favorite swimbait and the only thing i like more for bass fishing is berkley Gulp! power worms. i mainly just use it in my gf's pond as that is the only type of bass fishing i really do. But i catch a ton of bass on it. I have caught some nice crappie on it too. I even caught about a 5 pound channel on it about a week ago, man i thought that was a nice bass!

    how big was it...

    i dont think 4 inches is too big for bass on account of they can eat fish and minnows that are half their body length.....

    I use these for Bass of all kinds in freshwater and they work well in saltwater for blues as well but you can only catch one blur per lure due to all of the theeth that thing has. One thing also it is not just a cast and retieve bait it can also be jigged on the bottom to imatate and injured baitfish.

    the size depends on the bass in the hole I am fishing smaller bass = 4 incher larger bass, over 3 lbs 6 incher I even have a a couple of 13 inch imatation trout for a Mexico trip my brother bought for me as a birthday present.

    but bigger bass will still bite that right..... i dont see why they wouldnt...

    i would have got 6 inchers but they had none

    but i hope the walleye, pike, and stripers like them:big_smile:

    yes any bass will hit it. Heck big bream will hit it. I cought several large bream on mine in my neighbors pond. just vary your retrieve fast, slow, stalling during your retrieve and jigging until you find what the fish are looking for and then your in business.
