TIP: The Thin Shad, from Reaction Strike is uniquely realistic and ideal for catching pressured bass. Perfect for fishing on a drop shot or a finesse jighead, especially in clear water when the bite is tough. Ideally, rig the Thin Shad on a 6’9 to 7’2 spinning rod with medium-light action on 6-8 pound test. Work slowly in deeper water using your boat electronics or cast out and move along the bottom very slowly if you’re fishing from the bank.
Mizmo www.mizmo.com - Hoax Worm 10ct.

Perfect for late summer weedless pitching around thick vegetation or around docks and structure. For a little more action, try rigging wacky style and let the bait sink slowly until it gets to the bottom and then give it small hops, working it slowly back to you.
