This is a Bass Lab EXCLUSIVE! For years I've been searching for a big-bodied, flat-sided, balsa crankbait to target bigger bass. I wanted a big high float balsa bait that was designed for cover cranking. Think shallow rock, wood, shell, and gravel bars for those bigger spring pre/post-spawn females. So, I teamed up with the BIG M to bring my vision to life. The result is a hand-carved 5/8 oz plus crankbait with a tight action that moves plenty of water and triggers those bigger bites. Because this bait is so buoyant, it backs out of cover like a champ...and has a secondary action "wobble" on the rise that triggers strikes! The custom single ticker rattle also creates just enough noise to draw big mamma's attention. These baits dive 3-5 feet depending on line size and are finished tough! Finally, the EPIC Shad has a durable killer custom paint job by TK Stanley @ Tackle Kraft. Pair these up with a round bend size 2 or 3 treble and you are good to go. Sneaky tip--use a Red Gammakatsu hook on the belly hook, and use a pull and stop retrieve while you're cranking through cover--you'll thank me later!
