Keitech Shad Impact
The Keitech Shad Impact is a soft plastic shad imitator offering a vast array of applications for bass fishing. The Shad Impact, from Keitech Lures, features a shad shape profile that accurately mimics the action and appearance of shad and other bait fish bass often feed upon. The real key to this bait is the unique dual action of a side roll and shaking tail - many experienced swimbait anglers understand how effective the two way action is; something about that motion initiates a instinctual response from bass and causes them to strike. The Shad Impact is comprised of two different types of plastic, the top section, which is darker on all the baits, is straight plastic with no salt impregnation. The bottom half is lighter in color and is poured with salt included. The combination of materials weights the bottom slightly heavier and gets the bait to dance in a way other shad imitation plastics have only dreamed of. The color contrast enhances the realism of the bait and creates flash when light reflects off the glitter.
We offer the Keitech Shad Impact in two sizes: 4" (8pk) & 5" (6pk). Colors: 400-Ayu, 416-Silver Flash Minnow, 417-Gold Flash Minnow, 418-Bluegill Flash, 420-Pro Blue Red Pearl, 422 - Sight Flash, 426-Sexy Shad, 440-Electric Shad
Keitech Shad Impact Rigging
The Keitech Shad Impact can be rigged in any number of ways including drop shot, jig head, weightless and split shot. The following diagrams offer a little more information on suggested methods of use.
Rigged on a jig head the Keitech Shad Impact darts and dives around flashing all the while. This rig is especially effective for smallmouth that tend to group up on rock jetties and wait to ambush their prey.
Rigging the Keitech Shad Impact behind a split shot weight is more or less a finesse Carolina Rig. The Shad Impact will float and sway through the water remaining above the bottom as it is retrieved. This can be a deadly technique when fishing bodies of water that have sparse vegetation that grows up a few feet off the bottom.
Employing the Keitech Shad Impact without any weight is an excellent technique when fish are feeding up in the water column. Retrieve it quickly and experience awesome topwater strikes or cast it at boiling fish and deadstick it completely.
