Picasso Shad Walker

What is it?

Picasso’s Shad Walker.

What does it do?

Before you say it looks like something your child plays with while in the tub, think about this: Which do you see flipping along the surface more often; frogs or baitfish? This baitfish imitator makes sense.

Why do I need it?

To accurately mimic the bass chow that actually skitters, pops and hops across the surface.

How do I use it?

You can work it like a topwater frog with a walking motion, or you can “hump” it (make the front end bob up and down while retrieving the bait in a straight line) like Dave Wolak does with hollow topwater baits.

What sets it apart?

Well, for one thing it looks like a shad. Second, it sits higher in the water that most frogs so it doesn’t lose its action in rough water or bog down. Picasso also claims that the Shad Walker skips easier than a frog because there are no legs to bog down during a skip. Currently, 7 colors are available.

How much?

This topwater will set you back $10.49.
