the tadpole is a great bait and caught lots of fish on them. But had a tough fishing day and had to change up to trigger a strike. So Todd and Belinda if you like my modification to your bait, I'd be more than happy to take a lifetime supply if you make them and have success with them.here's the recipe cut off legs, split the tail and put on jig head sideways, completely changes the profile, bait is so soft when you pop it those tails really flap

Gotta do what you gotta do when the bite is tough, great shaking bait, now you you have two baits in one, the side to side, and the up and down, everybody buy those tadpoles you won't be disappointed, I'm not a paid sponsor just a very happy customer, TFFers keep supporting ours small bussiness owners, by the the way that's a Crazy Angler Modified Walleye 1/16th head with stick on eyes powder coated and sealed in Sallys hard as nails, Gotta give Crazy Angler a big thank you with their great service, they keep me tying and stocked up on jig heads to keep me creative, Joser

cheers for ingenuity and supporting our small businesses. Big box stores could care less about us.

Heres the tadpole in natural shad with a lime green, with disco lime gold flake on the bottom of the head, modified walleye head with eyes to stare them down into a fight

The slab bug they have looks like what you have here. They are both good jigs.

I have always been a fan of the Lil Fry's, it is my go to bait...but this tad pole looks really interesting,, especially that tail...guess I have been MIA for 2 long...need to hook up with Todd and then see what Granny B's got cooking. Thanks for the heads-up on the bait and modification!

What size hook are you pairing with that tadpole?
