Catching Fish With Storm Wild Eye Swim Shad in Ohio
I have been thinking to try these wild eye shads for a while and finally I bought a pack of Pearl at Walmart. It was less then $5. 3 in a pack and all same size; 3"
I chose the Pearl color because I always catch bigger fish in sunny and hot afternoons with pearlish, whitish, silverish colors in lakes, deep ponds and rivers. Saltwater is a different subject..
I tied my line which is 8lb direct to the lure, I don't usually use clips for small size baits. This shad is so easy to cast. It flies like a bullet and dives like a butterfly :)
When it came very close to the shore I noticed there were a lot fish chasing it.. small ones, big ones, bluegill, bass.. I loved seeing how they were all so curious about this crazy shad.
After a few cast, I understood how it behaves in the water. Then I started fishing. And bam! a decent size of large mouth bass was on it! but I missed it while trying to land as I was trying to move a bit away from there because I was so scared of a snake that I have seen on that spot couple of days ago.
Second cast and bam! a beautiful crappie! And another! And another! and a small bass! and another bass! I love this shad! Storm has done a well job!
