Ok, starting from the bottom pic, here is my very first ever swimbait fish. Caught this in my cousins lake. Caught it on a 4" Storm Wildeye Shad in Shad color. Here is another I got with a 3" Storm Wildeye Shad in shad color. Fished it like a jerk bait. Caught this white bass Fri. on the Little Tallapoosa River on a 3" Storm Wildeye Shad in shad color. And I caught this crappie today on another 3" Storm wildeye in shad color. I did dip the tail to change it to a chatruese color. Here's a pic of my boy Jacob with his first swimbait fish. Caught it on a 3" Storm wildeye shad in shad color. Jacob caught this good one on the same trip with a 2.5" Bass Assassin swimbait in what I think is purple/pearl color.This next one I caught while my daughter and I were fishing together today, caught it on 3" Creme Spoiler Shad swimming bait in Chartruese Red Head color.This next pic, I caught this bass with a Possum Lures swimbait in the crappie color. Got this next bass today at my church's lake, caught it with the Possum Lures swim bait in crappie color.

I'm going to report my swimbait catches here...

I went out today to try and catch some LM or crappie on a 2" Wild Eye shad in the Shad color...This is the first time I've used these, I bought a whole bunch of them at Target on clearance a few months ago. Unfortunately, I caught exactly 0 LM or Crappie...but I did find a school of some white perch! I caught 4 total, but released the first one (it was small) before I remembered to take pictures...I only got pics of the first 2 with the swimbaits, the 3rd was when it was raining too hard to take pics.

Rule Change.

No need to add your pictures to your one original thread. Just add the pictures normally at the end.

Those baits get horrible reviews, but I like them.

Their quality control doesn't seem to be the best. The first one I had was great and would swim perfectly from a burn to as slow as you could crank it. This one literally didn't swim at all out the package, but I pulled all the pins and cut and widened all the cavities where the loop things fit in so it would be able to swing wider. I also had to mess around with hook combinations to find some that worked, but now it's fixed to where it'll catch some fish.
