The Storm Smash Shad is a hard plastic lure designed to mimic the action and appearance of several baitfish species which bass often feed upon. The Smash Shad, from Storm Lures, exhibits a slim profile that presents an accurate representation of shad, one of bass's favorite meals. The smash shad's action displays a deliberate, steady cadence when reeled in with a constant pace. In addition to a steady retrieve, the Smash Shad will also prove to be an excellent cold water bait when fished with rod sweeps followed by pauses, this keeps the lure in the strike zone longer and teases the lethargic bass into striking at such an easy meal. Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the lure are the phenomenal finish choices and internal rattles which supplement the already effective action. Anglers have also found this lure to be excellent for big brown trout when fished on spinning gear and braided line; for that application our most popular color is the Rainbow Smelt. We offer the Storm Smash Shad in the size 7 - 2 3/4" in several color options. The size 7 Smash Shad weighs 3/8oz and can be expected to reach depths between 6-12 feet without further modification.
