SHAD BLADE A vibrating lure style designed with a wide flat head, which together with the metal blade, provides erratic action when the lure is jerked sharply or allowed to drop in free fall. This erratic action, vibration, and fish like appearance of the Shad Blade can trigger predatory strikes from game fish. The lure has been designed with recessed eye sockets to accept 5/32" decal stick-on lure eyes or 3-D eyes. This is an easy lure to attractively finish and assemble.

BLADE BAITS Blade Baits are a type of lure made with a metal "blade" and used with great success in vertical jigging for schooling fish such as Walleye or Bass. Blade Baits are also used for trolling and casting. Smaller sizes have proven very effective catching Smallmouth Bass. Lures made with "ZB" series blanks have attachment points to offer adjustable balance and vibrations. Fishing line should always be attached to a Duo-Lock snap or such and never directly to the blade itself. Blades are necessarily made thin and could sever the line if a large fish was hooked. Use snaps to avoid this problem. When Nickel plated blanks are used, the lead portion is often just left without finish. Lures made from brass finish blanks should be painted before attaching hooks. Optimum paint adhesion can be obtained if the molded blanks are first "prepped" with a commercial metal preparation or an etching solution of 20% vinegar to water. This will remove oxidation that may have formed on the brass or lead and provide a good surface for paint to adhere. All that is required to assemble blade baits is the addition of double hooks. The open eye of the double hook style 274 is easily attached by inserting the open eye through an attachment hole in the lure blank. Less expensive standard treble hooks like style 374 require attachment with a split ring size No. 2 or No. 3.
