Generate more strikes, catch more TROPHY fish in fresh and salt water including, but not limited to: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Musky, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Salmon, Stripers, Bluefish, Tuna, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, Snapper & anything else that swims. This lure will catch them all!
- Just as you would throw a spinnerbait or lipless crankbait, cast the SteelShad out and retrieve it back in just fast enough to feel the bait vibrating. When using this particular presentation in deeper water start by reeling in your SteelShad as soon as it hits the water. If you don't trigger any bites, cast the bait again, let it fall for 5 seconds, and then retrieve the bait. Continue to count down your bait with each cast until you get a bite. The fish will tell you how deep they want the bait. The SteelShad typically sinks at a rate of 1 foot per second, so this will help you to target suspended fish.
- Many fish (including bass) frequently feed on schools of baitfish by pushing them to the surface, creating an appearance anglers often refer to as boiling water. Cast a SteelShad into a schooling frenzy and watch the magic happen!
- Drop it vertically and let it fall to the bottom, or the desired depth. Work it along the bottom, or the desired depth, by lifting your rod tip up 12 to 18 inches and then letting the lure fall. Pay close attention to your line as fish will often eat the bait on the fall.
- SteelShad runs great at a variety of trolling speeds. SteelShad will run 1 to 5 feet deep without weight depending on your speed.
- To achieve optimal depth(s), you can troll SteelShad deeper using downriggers, planers and lead core line.
