One of my pet tackle complaints is that too many lures are short, squat and designed to imitate shad—a key forage in U.S. reservoirs. This Japanese-made lure, however, resembles the long, slender ciscoes and smelt found in Canadian waters. Internally balanced, and with a short, rounded bill, it darts erratically and floats to the surface on the pause. It’s available in 3½-, 4 3/8- and 5¼-inch sizes and five holographic baitfish patterns.
