Don't Sleep On The Megabass Hazedong Shad!

Recommended Posts

From ice-out thru prespawn, before the grass came in, nothing could match the Dark Sleeper. Once the grass came in it was a no-go. It'll snag up the type of grass we have here on every cast unless you burn it back in. Even then it's tough to not end up reeling in a clump. I decided to give the Hazedong Shad a try. I eventually settled on the Owner Twistlock Light 5/0 belly weighted hook. This combo comes thru grass amazingly well and can be slow-rolled while following the grass or reeled in just a little quicker to imitate suspending baitfish on the move.

 

All I know is this: Over the past several months, but especially the past 3 weeks, this bait has been my top producer. I'm just hammering them. Last night we boated over 40 bass. Big or small, the bass seem to be keyed in on this size bait. My brother did get a mondo on a Rat 50, and I got a nice one on the big momma Mann's Baby One Minus, but the Hazedong in Moroku and Green Pumpkin Blue got the most attention by a long shot.

 

It's also quite durable. I've gotten 10-15 bass per bait. A pickerel or two will ruin those odds though. Anyway, this bait has been a winner for me during low light and night time fishing sessions. That may change with the seasons. But for right now, with all of the small bait in the water, it's an absolute killer.
