Any out there tried any of these lures, Storm Wildeye Swim Shad 2 inches. Caught some on it yesterday and they sucked it down pretty deep. Water 10' to 14' deep. Looking for maybe just the bodies for when they are in shallower water, they don't say the weight but would like to maybe use a lighter jig head.

Never seen the 2 inchers. I think I like Northland's better. Better colors, and action.

I had something bite the tail plumb off one of those last summer. I think it was a bluegill because that was all we were catching that day in the cove. I couldn't get anything hooked until I went with a small jig.

I picked them up at a store here called Hudson's, they get firesales, bankrupt etc. stuff and just had some stuff from a tackle store near saltwater I think, most of it was saltwater. But on page 295 item H #21-240-080 of BPS 2007 master fishing catalog has them. They also have the ones you use for stripers. So far the only place I have found them, I got all 3 pkgs Hudson's had.

Storm also puts out a 3 inch sunny (bluegill) swimbait. It works too! single hook above at the dorsal and treble hook below.

the big version (5" i think) is killer during striper and walleye runs in the spring, then the 2" works good along bluff faces and bridge abutments in the dead of winter and extreme heat of summer. they have pretty good action, just remember, when your letting that little thing go 20 feet down, color doesnt' really matter very much.
