I found some Arkie 2" shad baits at wal-mart in I believe the ice shad color? Its kind of a Clear with Silver specks in it. I had really good luck with them under a float and was curious if anyone preferred them over the Bobby Garlands? I saw some BG's (never used them) at Dick's Sporting Goods in a color something milk (money milk?) dunno but anyways they looked like they might be pretty good. What color BG's do you guys use and have you had any experience with the Arkie baits?

Thanks,

Michael

I picked up a few packs of those Arkie baits at wal mary in the color your talking about. Haven't had a chance to try them out yet. They also had the same cue with a chartreuse tail. I got a pack of those too.

They look like they will catch fish, and I like the color schemes. But at almost 2 buck for a pack of 8, I'll stick with the baby shad.

Big Bobby Garland fan here ~ especially the "electric chicken" ~ account a recent fishing trip resulting in my
biggest slab to date. A couple of 16 inchers and a 17 1/2 incher on the "electric chicken" has me drooling to
return with my 12' bnm jiggin' pole. You know how opinions are formed. I have mine set in concrete.
Tight lines to ya.

Take a look at Kalin's Shad in 18 colors for $4.95/50 pack and Southern pro Stinger Shad in 20 colors at $4.95/50 pack!
