Sorry if I'm de on this one.. But, I have a question for the swimbait guys. Just wondering if there are any good options out there for a shad swimbait that isn't $90 for a 9" bait. Or is the Bull Shad just the bee's knees and worth it?

Thanks

9 inch is $80.... Good bait but there is just as good for less.

Not a lot of big baits under $90 that are proven catchers. Try looking at swimbait underground or some other forums and find some used ones.

The Bull Shad is a great bait. Unfortunately the price to play the big bait game is high. That being said, there are some baits for half that price that will get you bit. The Jackall Gantarel is becoming one of my favs.

The shine glide is a nice bait for alot less than the bull shad.

Also has anyone tried the new Livingston glide the B Viper that just came out at Icast? Velvic designed the bait and seems pretty fired up about it when he spoke about it on a live youtube seminar.

Looks like an Evergreen ES Flat swimbait or a 6th Sense Flow Glider but just a bit longer.

The Spro swimbaits are great, as are the River2Sea S-Wavers. IMHO, the best swimbait for the money will always be a RO5 Huddleston 68 Butch Brown rigged.

I have an S-Waver 168 and really like it. Will probably get the 200 soon but I was wanting a big shad profile bait before that.

You mean you all aren't on first name basis with Mike Bucca by now? LOL. I fished with him when he was located in North Texas and got to help launch his Doodad feathered treble business. I remain good friends with him and get my baits directly from him, I pay full price, but he asks less. The Bull Shad is a GREAT BAIT, but BIG swimbaits are not cheap. A GLIDE bait is not a swim bait, but pretty close, it is called a GLIDE bait for a reason. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I forgot about the s-waver, it is definitely a good bait. I figured he was talking hard baits, if you include soft baits it opens a whole new box, and Hudson are at the top. I also like the smash tech.
