PowerBait® Pre-Rigged Swim Shad is rated out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JonnD241 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 Tiredofbadbaits417 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 Grogers70426 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 3 out of 5 by NeedmoFishintime from As others have posted, "Great bait, but...." I have had great success in getting the bite from fish (bass, tarpon, snook, and sea trout) with the Pearl Red Eye. I get the hookup but too often lose the fish. Strongly believe the problem is in the hook and the small size of the barb. The lures I have purchased lately have such a small barb and the lure is fairly heavy. A few shakes if the fish gets it's head out of the water and you go home with the dreaded "One that got away" story. Berkley, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE improve the barb on these great baits! My freezer has too much room in it! I also do a bit of "skipping" with the lure to get under vegetation, docks, bridges, etc. and found the lure's plastic will split on the belly - exposing the lead. Only happens when I skip it across the surface after several times. This does cause the lure to swim to the side.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Heavy six 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 Trainer 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 Biddo from Always getting bites! These have quickly become one of my favorite lures. I've been using the 2" size for two years now on small lakes and rivers in Maine and New Hampshire. I catch bass, pickerel, and perch with this lure. I've never not gotten bites when using these. Only negative with these is the tails can be bitten off quite easily leaving the lure basically useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EZiggy 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.
