Are you looking for a shallow, indestructible bass fishing lure that casts like a missile, and hunts like a hopped up, paranoid bait fish? Well, if you are ... the Stanford Lures Patriot Shad Crankbait is the answer. Constructed out of cedar instead of balsa for maximum durability, this small, dense, durable bass fishing lure deflects off everything but bass. Available in a range of proven, hand-painted colors, each Stanford Lures Patriot Shad Crankbait is 100% made in the USA, comes equipped with only premium components, and is hand-tuned by Dieter Stanford, himself.
Comments: definitely a high quality bait in terms of action and fish-catching ability, but it leaves something to be desired in the hardware department. I had a fish smash it 5 feet from the bank in clear water and saw the whole bait disappear into the mouth of the bass. I set the hook, yet somehow it got off on the first jump. Very low quality VMC hooks. However, once I replaced the hooks with #2 KVD triplegrips I couldn't have been happier with it. Great wobble, very durable, and it deflects very well. I love the computer chip bill. I just wish for the $20 pricetag that it came with premium trebles.

Comments: This shallow runner square bill smokes all other square bill cranks. Cedar is the ticket. Great cast ability. Runs true out of the box. You want a great crankbait for bass in the backs of creeks in the fall. Get this one! Yu wont be disappointed.

Comments: Awesome baits! Some days the wood bite is way better than the plastic bite and the Stanford Patriot Shad is what I reach for! Great finishes, runs true, deflects well and backs out of hang ups almost as well as balsa. Best wooden crankbait on the market, bar none.
