Heddon Sonar Blade Bait
The Heddon Sonar Blade Bait is the original action-adjustable lure. The three line-tie holes allow adjustment of the lure's running depth and action. The front hole is for shallow running and high vibration. The rear hole produces deep running and a wide, slower, wobbling action. The center hole is perfect for jigging, a technique especially effective for ice fishing.

Bad Hook Design
Used for the first time yesterday and I spent more time untangling it than fishing. The hooks don't have a solid common shank and the line gets twisted between them and creates a mess. I will remove the hooks and try something else, possibly a little smaller. The vibration seems to be really good and I did catch a couple pike on it. Just frustrating to use.
old favorites they still do the job.

Back to an old walleye favorite lure. Catching crappie and walleye with them in deeper water.
it is a fantastic lure. It has been very effective for me when fishing for river tigers: the dorado, in the rivers of Uruguay. It also has the advantage that due to its weight and aerodynamics it can be thrown far reaching places impossible with other lures when fishing from the coast and wide rivers. - Translated from Spanish
An outstanding but underrated multi-purpose lure

Rediscovered this lure a few years ago trolling for Lake Trout in summer - fish came right up through the thermocline to hit this remarkable flashing vibrating bait! Sonars on light spinning tackle almost out-fished other lures trolled on wire line! It is excellent for casting - it's slim profile means it goes very far out there with minimal effort. It sinks rapidly, so you have to pay attention to avoid snags on rough bottom. There isn't an obvious replacement for this lure, which provides an incredible flexibility in depth and presentation style that cannot be duplicated by any crankbait or traditional spoon, allowing you to get at fish otherwise unreachable. It is also good for trolling - the smaller 1/4 ounce size runs at about 10-12 feet depth at 2 mph, the larger 3/4 ounce size runs 15-20 feet depth at 2 mph. I use the front hole attachment for casting or trolling, the middle hole for vertical jigging. All the colours seem to work equally well. Highly recommended!
great fishing lure

You hear all the time about the new rage in fishing lures. It's all lure company's hype trying to get you buy their latest and greatest. In the meantime no one who has recently started fishing hears about the old fishing lures. Just because you don't hear about an old lure on all these fishing shows doesn't mean it doesn't catch a lot of fish. The good old fashioned blade bait is one of them. I've been using the Heddon blade bait 1/4 ounce for two years now. Blade baits catch almost everything in the water. I use them to catch walleye and they work great! These blade baits vibrate really easily. The vibration of this lure is key to catching fish with it. Just a simple lift on the rod and you can feel the vibration. I fish them horizontally and vertically. Just make sure you don't have a lot of slack in the line while letting the lure fall. When it's falling is when the fish usually hit. The one thing that I do change on them is the hook. I think the hooks they come with are too big.I put on a split ring with a size 10 hook on the 1/4 ounce. The only reason I don't give them a 5 is because of the hook issue. Buy some of these, learn how to fish them correctly and you won't be sorry.
