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 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.
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.
