Customer Reviews

Comments: Great bait here at Toledo Bend. I own numerous patterns of this bait & all work well. Unfortunately the Chrome Black, of which I purchased 3 from tackle warehouse, each of them lost 2/3 to 3/4 of it's chrome in one outing. We are fishing open water & grass, "not rock". This also happened to a buddy of mine today fishing the same cover. I going to call Strike King tomorrow. I recommend this bait highly, but be careful if you purchase the chrome models!

From: Sean: Leesville, LA 5/22/16

Comments: Really good bait. You can fish it a variety of ways and casts like a dream. I'm partial to red shades myself, but am very impressed with this bait. Pick up some & go catch ya some.

From: Jason: Westminster, MD 3/31/16

Comments: I've had great success with a 1/2 oz chrome sexy shad. All around great bait. Fishes great from fall throughout the pre spawn

From: Dalton: AL 10/26/15

Comments: By far the best lipless crank bait on the market. Catches fish year round & with all the color selections, you can't go wrong. And of course TW has them all. Pick you some up, great buy for the money !

From: Johnnie: Lancaster, KY 10/17/15

Comments: By far the best lipless crank bait on the market. Catches fish year round & with all the color selections, you can't go wrong. And of course TW has them all. Pick you some up, great buy for the money !

From: Johnnie: Lancaster, KY 10/17/15

Comments: This lure in Neon Bluegill catches tons of fish!! However, the hooks both bent and broke off after only a 3 pounder. I used 15lb flourocarbon and a Med/Hev rod and managed to break off the hooks. Great bait, but put some replacement trebles in the cart too.

From: Joe: Grand Rapids, MI 8/7/15

Comments: These lipless cranks are a little pricey, but they are worth every bit of the money! As there is a lot of colors/patterns, I chose the good old Sexy Shad. I caught 13 bass in a small pond on the first outing! I was casting into grass and ripping it out. Unfortunately on the 3rd time using it, i got it snagged on something and it snapped my line. I will definitely be getting more of these!

From: John: Woodlands, TX 6/12/15

Comments: Best lipless crank I have ever fished! Using Gold Sexy Shad, got 8 today in cold muddy water in a span of 15 minutes yo-yo-ing, they usually hit it at the apex of the rip or on the fall. Lost about 4 more at the shore but I think that is me not playing the fish right, going to beef up the hook size slightly anyways.

From: Erik: Rochester, NY 4/16/15

Comments: I love this lure sexy gold shad is my favorite color caught small pike, walleye & bass all around awesome lure highly recommend it worth every penny and then some.

From: Jack: IL 2/23/15

Comments: Man I love this lipless. I bought a 1/4oz in the Green Tomato. Most of the lakes I fish in NJ are shallow and filled with junk grass, so the 1/4oz version is a little better for my area. Not to mention they are highly pressured and most of the lakes have clear water, sometimes stained. Stock hooks aren't the best, I replaced mine with #6 Gamakatsu round bends. Been fishing a pond lately and they love this thing. Had a 5lber shake me off 2 feet from the bank.

From: Nick: Vineland, NJ 1/7/15

Comments: I've tried quite a few colors in many situations with some mixed results. I seem to do much better on the XCalibur XR50. This isn't bad, catches some fish, just not as many in my experience.

From: Brian: Oak Forest, IL 12/26/14

Comments: Awesome lipless crankbait. Have caught numerous big fish on them with my biggest being a 11.2 pounder on the Citrus Shad color! They have a great rattle to them that call  the fish. Only negative is the hooks. NEED TO CHANGE THEM OUT. The 11.2 I caught bent the hooks straight out, luckily she had a couple hooks in her so I could land her without the hooks breaking. Other than that GREAT bait!

From: Christian: FL 12/1/14

Comments: Great lipless crank. Only negative is the hooks really need to be upgraded. My favorite replacement hooks are: 1/4 Rd Eye Shad: Mustad KVD 1xStrong 2xShort Size 6; 1/2 Rd Eye Shad:  Mustad KVD 1xStrong 2xShort Size 4

From: Kevin: Morgan City, LA 11/13/14

Comments:  I have used a countless amount of lipless crankbaits in my past and none have caught me as many fish as the red eye shad by strike king. it is designed to perfection and is my go to lure! the shimmy on the fall attracts bass like none other and it never turns over, please do yourself a favor and purchase this cheap and effective bait

From: John: Pine Bush, NY 7/14/14

Comments: I really like these in the 1/4 and 1/2oz sizes.  The hooks do need to be upgraded but that's the only negative I have.  Best colors for me are neon bluegill, chili craw, and sexy shad.  Yo-yoing seems to get more bites but have also had luck burning them too.

From: Michael: GA 3/13/14

Comments: Just upgrade the hooks, best lipless C/B.The only one you need.

From: Dachile: Yuma AZ

Comments: Such a great bait. I have a 1/2 ounce chrome sexy shad that has me tons of fish. And even with half the bait being white and bare of paint it's still catching fish

From: Justin: Ohio 

Comments: Best lipless crank on the market. I hated throwing lipless cranks until I started throwing this one.One some money on it over the weekend!

From: Ben: KS

Comments: The Strike King Red Eye Shad has just produced the new South African record caught by August Lingnau. It is also responsible for my two largest smallmouth so far. They flat out catch fish and has an awesome flutter action.

From: Robert: Cape Town, Western Cape, South Afirica

Comments: this bait is dynomite i never leave my house without it. I have caught fish over eight pounds on it and it has been a big help winning tournaments

From: Bailey: Lakeland, FL

Comments: AWESOME LURE! Took this to my uncle's pond where he's having trouble catching them and wore them out. All I caught were 4 and 5 pounders. Blue and Chrome is the only one I use but the bad to the bone, bluegill, and sexy shad are some other good ones too.

From: Matthew: Gonzales

Comments: i used the pull and stop retreive to catch my first smallmouth of the year on it ( cant wait to use it on some largemouths!)

From: Paul: WI

Comments: Great bait, no doubt but has flaws- Paint chipping, weak hooks, etc. 3/4 size is my favorite......These baits are made for yo-yoing, deadly fall too. Wonder why some colors have no "Red Eyes"? Kinda funny.....

From: Rusty TX, where else?

Comments: I've used almost every lipless there is and the bottom line is that The Red Eye Shad is the best affordable trap available. The thing just catches fish.

From: Brice: Rome City, IN

Comments: great lure it is the best lipless crankbait I have ever used have caught a lot of fish on them tons of great colors to choose from

From: Trevor: lake Villa, IL

Comments: awsome bait, huge color selection over any bait, cast amazing i think the 3/4 size is too big tho, good quality build strong finish love it

From: Jake: PA

Comments: the baits are awsome!! i had an xcaliber and an aruka shad but they just lost their eyes and didnt catch fish like the red eye shad. my two favorite colors are chrome sexy shad and gold sexy shad but some times i will throw the neon shad color. get some of these and you will start catching fish.

From: David: Cali

Comments: one of the best rattle traps hooks are decent but could be changed...blue and green gizzard colors will catch em summer spring and fall! Very affordable as well

From: Digity: The Ridge, TN

Comments: You only need two colors in the fall- 'Blue and chrome' and 'sexy shad'... we catch up to 50-60 bass day on these lures.  Great baitfor feeding and schooling fish..

From: Roy: Columbia, TN

Comments: Awesome bait! During the spawn when the fish are on their beds throw this bait at them. The rattles are perfect, not to loud not to soft. Also really good bait for a bad day, just tie it on and throw it out into the lake. The color choice's are amazing!

From: Andrew: MA

Comments:  i have these things in orange craw and sexy sunfish and they have worked very well for me when other lipless cranks have not put fish in my boat. great bait

From: Tyler: Cincinnati

Comments: This is a great bait for all year.  Can be fished many ways with success.  If I was told I could only have one bait in my boat, this is what I pick.

From: Basshunterclark: Rockwall, TX

Comments: best lipless crankbait out there! gold sexy shad and gold black are my favorite colors. i have had some luck on the sexy sunfish aswell. pulled a few 3 pounders out with that color. but the gold sexy and the gold black are my go to colors. your the best strike king!

From: Trent: Bentonville, AR

Comments: Great bait. I have it in sexy sun fish and red bone shad and they work great in the 1/2 ounce size. i catch fish all day long with these baits at the lake.

From: Tyler: Cincinnati

Comments: Sexy sunfish color is a killer on bluegill forage lakes - love these lures - stock hooks on 3/4 oz are fine out of package - beefy for the hogs !

From: Lord of the shallows: MA

Comments: Best lipless out there.  As for Jacob saying they get hung on everything I would say it is operator error.

From: Brett: IL

Comments: when you put your boat in a new lake that you have never been too, tie this thing on in a minnow pattern and 1/2 oz, position you boat 30 yards from shore and just start crankin. this thing will never let you down

From: Kurt: NJ

Comments: i like the black gold color,great for florida,but the hooks are terrible. change the hooks.

From: Kevin: Miami, FL

Comments: This bait is awesome!!! I caught 18 bass in 4 hours on this plug (and 1 bass was 8lbs)...The only down side is that I caught so many northern pike that they stripped all the paint off of it.

From: Jason: Ingleside, IL

Comments: Caught a ton of LM Bass with the crawdad color.  I was unstoppable fishing from the back of the boat.  The other guys in the group tied on cranks but didn't do as well as I did.  Don't leave the dock without one of these tied on.

From: Kirk: IL

Comments: great baits but i like the Xcalaber better. this is still a great bait and it catches fish, just not my favorite.

From: Jonathon: Nashville, TN

Comments: These baits are amazing. They are best when theres a little chop on the water in my opinion or early morning and late evening. Ive caught several crappie on this bait also including a 2.5 lb kicker. Change the hooks

From: Tyger: Conway, AR

Comments: I see no need for any other rattle bait. They all do the same thing except this one has an exceptional fall. Plus it's available in tons of colors

From: KH: NJ

Comments: I went the whole year with only this lure on my pole, every kind of fish bites this, the 3/4 ounce chrome sexy shad is awesome

From: Shawn: Michigan, USA

Comments: Killer bait, great on the free fall it doesn't flop on it's side, vertical presentation, you can yo-yo it or rip it, last year the sexy shad version was dynamite.

From: Nate: Edmond, OK

Comments: Has Good action but gets hung up on everything it gets even close to. buy the one knockers or pay the money and get the best in the Ima rock-n-vibe

From: Jacob: Muldrow, OK

Comments: Awesome color selection and great action on the fall. Upgrade the hooks and they will catch more fish.

From: Sam: Indiana, USA

Comments: Cant beat them for the price and color selection.
