The Best Storm Soft Baits

The Best Storm Soft Baits
Soft baits have become a popular choice with anglers across the country over the last decade, thanks to the versatility and lifelike action these lures possess. Storm Lures has been at the fore front of soft bait lure manufacturing and offers a full line of lures aimed at mimicking the most popular bait fish that large predator fish feed on.

Live Kickin' Shad

This new offering from Storm offers a soft, lifelike body with the swimming motion of an injured shad. Complete with a holographic insert that gives the lure a unique flash, 3D eyes and a segmented tail for extra action, the Live Kickin' Shad has the look and feel of a real shad.
Available in two sizes, 3-inch and 5-inch, and nine colors, the Live Kickin' Shad is the right bait for anglers looking to fool a trophy bass hungry for an easy meal.

Spin Tail Shad

While all of Storm's soft baits have a built-in action, the Spin Tail Shad takes it to another level with the addition of a spinner blade on the back of the lure. Not only does this bait wiggle seductively, the added flash and vibration of the spinner blade at the tail put the action of this lure over the top.
It is available in a 6-inch size, weighs 2 oz. and comes in eight colors.

Rattle Jigging Craw

Not all soft baits are meant to imitate a minnow. The Rattle Jigging Craw is a lifelike imitation of a smallmouth bass' favorite food, the crayfish.
This lure comes rigged with a wide gap needle point VMC hook and a rattle chamber that draws bass in to the lure.
Available in a 3-inch size that weighs three-eighths oz., the Rattle Jigging Craw is ready to fish right out of the package.

Wildeye Live Goby

Because Gobies have invaded the Great Lakes and connecting watersheds, this evasive species has become a prime target for predators like bass, walleye and brown trout. The Wildeye Live Goby is designed to sink fast and stay close to the bottom, just like the real thing. The slow-swimming tail action and accurate color pattern make this bait a winner.
This lure is available in 3 sizes, from 2-1/2 inches to 4-1/2 inches and weights of 1/8 ounce to 3/8 ounce.
