PowerBait® Pre-Rigged Swim Shad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from my go to bait This is the best bait for fishing when you want to just tie on a lure and throw it out and regardless of how you reel it in it will catch bass/crappie big and small. i went fishn with my brother one day and he grab some shad colored ones and after I say how they just attacked it all day I was sold on them. I found that if you are not using a light action or UL rod you will have trouble with fish gettn off them. These swimbaits do not need much of hook set cause the fish bite on and swims off if you jerk it will let go before hook set I just reel down onto the tension and the fish kickn its tall will set the hook if the rod is to stiff they will get off normal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Action but, fish don't hold on!!! I bought this bait a week ago and was very excited to test it out on lake michigan off a dock. I casted a few times but, the wind was horrible that day so i didn't have much luck until i got a huge bite! I was positive that it was at least a 3 pounder but, just as soon as I felt the bite, my line went slack again! I did a lot of research and seemed by far the best because, of there deep study into what make fish bite and so forth. I loved the action on this bait though even though the fish didn't hold on. So, be warned great action but, once the fish get a taste of the plastic they spit it out and high tail it away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to bait Every time I get a chance I pick up a bag or two of these. The only bad thing about Wal-Mart is they only carry 4 of the colors in the 3" size, which is Baby Bass, Shad, Firetiger, & Pearl Red Eye. But I use the Pearl ones more than any other one of em. I been looking for the bluegill ones but I can't find em. I was using the same bait for a few weeks and caught about 12 largemouth bass, 3 white crappie n even a bluegill. I think the reason they loved hitting it was when I put it in tackle box I had a red worm that stained it a lil on the tail but the darkest red was in the gill area. Although I've had good luck with the Pearl & Shad, I haven't had much luck with baby bass & the bag of firetiger must've been defective bc when I would set the hook it would pull the weight through the bait. So I haven't bought another bag of firetiger. But I like that they are prerigged bc it takes the guess work out of getting it rigged perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed These baits look good but out of the 5 in the pack, only one ran true. They either went to the right on their side or wouldn't even sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I am from Jamaica, a little town called Black River. My friends and i have been using the 4'' and 3'' Firetiger swim shad to catch snook, more so the 4''. Let me tell you, we dont need any other bait for snook because it is the 'baddest' bait we have ever used. We swear by it. There is nothing like it. I have fishermen begging me to order packs for them. I recommend it to all my fishing buddies all over the island. If I had a thousand packs they would be all gone in a minute. Hmmm I need to get into the business. We loooove Mr Firetiger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bait but a few problems Bought a few bags, work great, but they come off. After a few casts, I've noticed the head comes off the weighted portion up by the hook eye, sometimes the fish seem to be able to quickly shake the bait loose and you lose the fish. Definitely a go to bait, would be nice if these little items were fixed making the bait amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best swimbait ever. I first bought this bait five.years ago while.on TDY to Washington (state). I brought it back tp Hawaii and tried it out on the peacock bass we have here. I was not surprised at how well it worked. I have since tried it out on the umbrella rigs that I use and they work equally as well. When I saw that they were on clearance, I bought 100 bags because I am afraid that you will be discontinuing the bait. I will use this feedback form to request the continuance of this bait (in the 2" size). Respectfully, Paul Lacerdo

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hook eyelets are not fully closed I was having good luck fishing 3" swim bait for largemouth bass this summer so I bought 5 packages of these for use on a week-long trip. The first package performed well, but I lost the first 2 oout of the next package right after a bass struck them. After examining them, I saw that the hook eyelet is not fully closed on ANY of them, but there is a more substantial gap on the package that was failing. Even using needle-nosed pliers I'm not able to get them to close all the way. Pieces of JUNK!!!
