Extremely Popular with tournament crappie anglers and weekend anglers alike, Bobby Garland's Baby Shad is well-known for turning slow crappie fishing days into memorable slab-producing days. These legendary soft plastic baits are durable and feature a plump profile body that tapers to a flapping, spear-shaped tail that creates loads of enticing, dancing action. The tail stays on the move with the slightest bit of movement. Try holding one still enough to keep the tail from moving and see for yourself. This makes a Baby Shad outstanding for vertical jigging, pitching around cover, fishing under a float and a host of other presentations. The soft body of a Baby Shad also feels natural in a fish's mouth, reducing spit-outs. Designed by the late Bobby Garland, the Original Baby Shad is most often used for crappie, but also works great for finicky bass and several panfish species.
