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.

I’ll admit it. I’m a fair weather fisherman. I’m not the kind of guy to spend early morning or long hours in the boat. I don’t match up to the serious guys, but…I do like to fish. I give credit to the serious fisherman…if you invest the time you’ll learn and get success…they deserve the results. I often listen to fishing advice and like most, have far more lures than I need or ever use.
