The Spro BBZ-1 2.5" Baby Shad is a hard-bodied, jointed swimbait that replicates various types of baitfish across the country. Bill Siemantel, the bait's designer, intended the baby shad to be a finesse swimbait that could catch multi-species of game fish, and many of them. The Spro BBZ-1 2.5" Baby Shad comes with a premium Gamakatsu #8 Treble Hook. Unlike a lot of swimbaits, this is one of those baits that can be fished on regular tackle. No need to go buy a big swimbait rod, especially if you are just getting started. We suggest using a 7' medium heavy rod and a 12-15lb flurocarbon line for best results.Length: 2.5"(65mm).
