Omega Alpha Shad Buzz Baits are a long time in the making. Omega makes these baits with premium materials to load up and give you the best possible bass catching lure. The Alpha Shad blades allow you to make a super slow retrieve while keeping the bait in the same movement and depth you prefer. Each rotation of the blades put out a click that perfectly mimics the sound of a bait fish on the water surface. The blades create a large wake that makes a bubble behind the lure while spitting water to attract those bass. The nose cone in the front of the blades helps to deflect weeds away from the blades to prevent a tangle or snag. The z bend in the wire helps the lure run a little lower in the water for a better chance of hooking up with the fish. The more natural ride of the lower lure helps your overall presentation. The sleek head goes to the surface right away, while it is equipped with a long shank. The lure features a hand tied pro tail skirt on a Gamakatsu hook.
