"Shad" Question.

Post  Pikey_Mike on Wed Jan 05, 2011 9:10 pm

Right, so my brother got me a couple of Berkley Powerbait Perch immitation "shads" (think that's what the yanks call them).

Anyways I was wondering what the hook and weight system for them is called, and if anybody knows where to get them on-line? I've not used these types of lures before so i'm a bit lost.

If i'm not being too clear about what I mean, it's these basically http://www.jacksangling.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=1577

Ok so i've managed to find some, they are called jig heads apparently.

On the subject of these lures, has anyone had much success with them? As I said in my original post, I've not used them before.

I've a few perch on that type of lure and 'chases' by a good few pike (mainly jacks) but apparently they are a successful type of lure.

I don't mind telling people how to catch pike. It's telling people where I catch pike that I have problems with.

Thanks for the link to the article, Andy, much appreciated!
Although my initial question was what I needed, not how to fish it, but it's an insight all the same!

Thanks dude.



BTW! If I was to plan a Pike trip at say....Loch Awe...would you have any tips? other than ofc make sure your on a boat with somebody that knows the crack.

Edit: or ofc you tag along and give me some tips (shit for being English) an enjoy the fishing, I'm sure Awe has some real big girls. I've heard they fight like hell up there. Basically make sure you've got plenty of line on your spool and have your clutch set!!

I wasn't answering your initial question. You did that yourself. I was answering your second post, which would suggest I have had some success with jig type lures,
A swimbait is a shad or a fish-shaped soft plastic with a jig-head, not a solid jointed lure as suggested in the other thread.
