SteelShad Lure FAQ – Steelshad

SteelShad Lures

The magic of this one-of-a-kind blade bait lies in its distinctive, timeless construction. The Original 3/8oz. SteelShad is popularized by smashing freshwater largemouth and smallmouth bass. Over the past ten years its success rates prove time and again this lure will land almost any fish due to its diverse features. From schooling fish frenzies to deep water targets SteelShad fishing lures has got you covered. Most blade baits have limitations, SteelShad lures do not and will endlessly perform as the go to weapon, year round in your local waters.

After 10 years the wait is over. On September 4th, 2017 we released the SteelShad XL Series, a larger lure for larger game fish.

At 3/4 oz. and nearly 4 inches long, following the footsteps of its shorter, lighter bass catching brother, the SteelShad XL delivers all the attraction of the original- and more! The versatile XL was created with more powerful, louder, solid action in mind. It is just as malleable, weighted perfectly and offers more intense vibrating action. Currently, the XL Series is available in silver and gold.
