The Ima Lures Shaker Crankbait is a flat sided shallow running crankbait that creates optimal deflection. The extreme wobble of the bait makes it a great choice for the early spring and late fall when bass are starting to key in on shad in the shallow water column. The bait runs from 3-5 feet deep depending on line size and retrieval speed. The bait features a weight transfer system that increases casting distance and accuracy. When fishing shallow cover, most of the time the latter is most important and should not be overlooked. Best results will be achieved when targeting the back of creeks that contain wood and rock cover. The manufacturer suggests using a medium or medium-light crankbait rod and a reel with a 5:1 or 6:1 gear ratio.
