Below are just a few ways to utilize the Steel Shad Fishing Lure for largemouth bass fishing.
Just like Crank Baits:
- Just as you would throw Crank Baits, Cast the Steel Shad out and retrieve it back in.
- Stagger your retrieve as you would on a lipless Crank Baits or as we call it the yo yo retrieve.
- Cast it out over flats and let it fall to the bottom and work it along the bottom by picking it up with the rod tip and letting it fall on slack line. Watch your line as sometimes as the Steel Shad Bass Fishing Lures are falling they will suck it up and start to take off with it.
Those are the two most obvious ways but with a little practice and some manipulation to the Steel Shad Bass Fishing Lures they can be fished like a spoon or buzz bait by bending them.
Where you bend them makes all the difference how they react.
” I like to take it and place it on its side in one hand and place my thumb behind the weight, where my thumb stops toward the back hook I bend the Steel Shad Bass Fishing Lures (about a 90 degree bend) this makes it run either to the left or right and it can be ran through stump fields as well as under docks, also alongside pad fields and other structures”
Also use this method when fishing for schooling bass!
Another way is to bend the Steel Shad Bass Fishing Lures just behind the weight in U style fashion to make it fish like a buzz bait.
” I have caught many Largemouth Bass using these methods in Florida Rivers and lakes plus many other rivers and lakes in the northern part of the country”
Good Luck and good Bass Fishing, Capt. Steve Niemoeller
