The Spro Aruku Shad Jr is a lipless
crankbait that matches several different types of forage fish that bass
prey upon. The Aruku Shad Jr., from Spro Lures, possesses a loud, high pitch rattle that
is similar to the sound fleeing shad emit. In addition to the realistic
sound and high quality natural finish, the Aruku Shad is designed to
move with a nose down action that will constantly bump the bottom when
retrieved correctly. This attribute is really what sets the bait apart.
Anglers have found this characteristic to yield better results in
certain situations, most notably the pre-spawn period. The Spro Aruku
Shad Jr. is best fished in areas that feature vegetation and lead into flats
that the bass use to both spawn and feed on. Anglers should employ a
steady retrieve and incorporate a sweeping motion to free the bait from
any vegetation. The Spro Aruku Shad Jr. (60 model) is 2 1/3" in length and weighs 3/8oz.
