The Sebile Star Shiner is a tight-action, suspending jerkbait designed for pressured fish or colder water conditions. Designed by visionary lure designer Patrick Sebile, the Star Shiner is an excellent choice for any species of fish that feeds upon shad and other forage fish. Engineered with a low center of gravity using Sebile's external weighting system this suspending jerkbait displays excellent stability as it is worked through the water. As is the case with most jerkbaits, the most commonly employed retrieve will be comprised of a jerk - pause cadence of some type. Mix it up with both the number of jerks before the pause and the length of pause to find out what the fish are after on that particular day. Some anglers like to use a steady retrieve with intermittent twitches when fishing the Star Shiner. This has already proved a very effective technique for Striped Bass and carnivorous species of trout. Another unique element of the Star Shiner is the lack of any rattles. When fish are spooky or the conditions are less than ideal, many anglers have found a more subtle approach to really drive the fish wild and a sneaky way of generating strikes.
If you are familiar with Sebile products you know this bait is also unique because of it's reasonable price point. Sebile has long created the absolute finest lures he can with cost not coming into the equation. While you will still find the higher priced premium lures, Sebile re-concentrated their efforts on the everyday angler and chose more suitable components for lowering the cost. What's great about these baits however, is they are not cheaper versions of previously designed lures. Instead all of the action first lures were researched and developed with full knowledge of the materials so all baits were tuned and tinkered with to get the best results from the materials available. The results are phenomenal.
We offer the Sebile Star Shiner in the 4 1/4" size - 1/2oz in many excellent colors.
