Bull Shad Bull Herring Swimbait
Handcrafted in Georgia, the Bull Shad Bull Herring Swimbaits are intended to mimic species of herring and hitch that bass feed upon all over the country. The Bull Herring possesses the profile of large, nomadic herring species that naturally become meals for some of the largest bass in waters void of California's infamous Vitamin T (Trout). The Bull Herring, like the other Bull Shad swimbaits, is not a highly refined, exquisitely detailed, finely finished bait that will swim out of its packaging to wow you with its realism. In fact, while the Bull Herring is quite the contrary, but it is exquisite in its own right. Instead of a super realistic imitation of a super clean and healthy baitfish, the Bull Herring resembles a beat up, harried, surviving by the ligament of its scales blueback herring that’s led a hard life to get where it is today – tied to the end of your line waiting to be devoured.
When you first pickup a Bull Herring Swimbait, you'll notice the bait to have a little bit of a rough finish as mentioned above. The exterior has a dimpled texture pattern that mimics the fish’s scales and each bait comes with oversized, baitfish-like, 3-D eyes. Paint jobs on these baits are rather simple with a seemingly quick little airbrush appliqué of color on the top and sides of each bait – just enough to give each bait a flash of hue in the water. It is this no-nonsense, beat-up appearance that makes this bait so endearing. It is so rough that it’s artful and the fact it’s made to this degree of abuse simply by chance makes it all the more perfect. High quality components are used throughout including: The slow sinking Bull Herring sink at about a half foot per second.
The Bull Shad Bull Herring Swimbait measures 6.5" in length and weighs 1.8oz with a sink rate of about a half foot per second.
