I fish salt water flats mostly. Bail stealers such as pinfish and blowfish will bite off the tail and thus the lure loses much of it's action. I've caught everything from trout, snook and reds. My favorite jerk bait.

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Looks Realistic

Cons: Bait stealers eat tail

The jerk shad are remarkable. The only suggestions that I would make is (and probably true for many other types) keep them out of the sun. I carry several packages of these when I go out in a small, soft side cooler with an ice pack for those hot Florida summer days!
