LiveTarget Golden Shiner
Koppers has combined a real-life Golden Shiner into the fuselage of a vibration tool to create the ultimate lipless rattle bait. The internal composition of the Live Target Golden Shiner is perfectly balanced for a ‘retrieve and drop’ style application - aka "Yo-Yo", a technique that has proven extremely effective when trying to mimic shad and forage species. Through its powerful harmonic rattles, the vibration calls fish from a distance like a dinner bell and will tantalize gamefish even in the toughest conditions.We offer the GS70SK model of the LiveTarget Golden Shiner Lipless Crankbait which measures 2 7/8" in length and weighs 1/2oz.
Fishing the Golden Shiner
One effective strategy is to softly deflect the lure off objects such as rocks or grass tips. Should the crankbait slow or deflect, impart a slight pop of the rod. This produces a sudden flash, echo and slight change in direction; triggering instinctive striking behaviours. Additionally, anglers may find this lure to be very effective when fished like a jig. Let it sink to the bottom and retrieve it with small hops and sweeps of the rod much like you would a jig. This can prove very effective in the winter and early spring.
