    Chris had an FLW Outdoors photographer go out with us for some magazine file pics up at Red Wing last May. We’d fished just a short time when Chris pulled in this nice fish. So, I took a few pictures of him while the “pro” was taking his shots. Think we were pulling Berkley Flicker Shads. We caught some really nice fish for the photos then moved on down the river channel. The Flicker Shads have been very good baits on the River and you might want to pick a few up to run with your Shad Raps to see which bait is the most productive. Good luck, everyone!

    Nice site, btw. FLicker Shads? Are those a crank bait?

    Hi, Nate! The Flicker Shads are a Berkley crankbait. When they first came out, they were selling them for $1.99! They sold them out then reintroduced the bait at a price of $4.99, I think. I believe Berkley made some design changes and upgraded the hooks because the hooks were actually pulling out of the original baits!! Lots of good colors to try–their wobble is different from the Shad Rap. Pick up a few and try running them along with the SR. They come in a #5 and a #7. Gary
