Berkley Flicker Shad Lure in for Review

in Fishing & Hunting by Carl H. Martens

The Berkley Flicker Shad, designed to excite walleye, have been popular with many game species including bass.  Following the popularity of the smaller line of Flicker Shads, this year the Berkley bait team super-sized the original Flicker Shad up to a big 9 cm (3.5 inches) version.

The Berkley 9-cm Flicker Shad delivers versatility and a unique action with all the same great attributes as the original model.  Anglers have the ability to go deeper and reach those lunkers that hang near the bottom.  It has been precisely engineered to deliver the action anglers demand in a magnum-size bait. 

The lure has a unique action creating a “flicker” that imitates fleeing baitfish.  These durable crankbaits are individually tank tested, which ensures a true running bait through the water right out of the box.  Weight transfer provides for bullet-like casts when fishing for bass or inshore use of downriggers.  The larger profile will more easily catch the fish’s attention.  This pro-designed bait features Mustad Ultra Point Hooks for deep penetrating hook sets and a wide variety of colors to match any conditions.  A handy card is included that helps the angler choose the correct dive curve simply by changing lines.

Available in 12 fish-catching colors:  Black Gold Sunset, Black Silver Flash, Chartreuse Pearl, Firetiger, Pearl White, Purple Flash, Prime Time, Racy Shad, Speckled Black Gold, Speckled Black Silver, Speckled Gold Shiner and Uncle Rico.

MSRP:  $5.99
