The Triton Mike Bucca Bull Shad Swimbait is a three-jointed swimbait designed to accurately mimic the different varieties of shad and baitfish, which populate fisheries across the United States. There is no denying the big trout-style swimbaits of the West Coast are proven to attract trophy bass, but big shad and their cousins are also a major forage for large bass. That's where the Triton Mike Bucca Bull Shad Swimbait comes in, it accurately imitates the profile and swimming action of several big baitfish varieties, including Threadfin Shad, Blueback Herring, Shiner and Gizzard Shad. "Triton" Mike Bucca, a longtime guide from Georgia specializing in catching trophy Spotted Bass on Lake Allatoona, spent several years and prototypes developing the Bull Shad because he recognized the need for a quality shad-style swim bait.
While it does have a rougher finish than other clear coat, glossy hard-swimbaits on the market, this simply adds to the Bull Shad's natural appeal. Its life-like action and profile are mouth-watering to big hungry bass. The Bull Shad performs well at varied retrieves from slow speed crawls to normal fast retrieves. It also has the ability to standup nose down on the bottom in a captivating feeding pose, allowing it be effectively jigged as well.
The Bull Shad features only top-of-the-line components, including Black Chrome Owner Hooks and Owner Hyper Wire Split Rings. Complete with 3D eyes and premium resins used in the construction process, the Bull Shad also has two built in hook hangers that swivel to prevent cagey trophy bass from twisting free. Each bait is also coated with a special realistic looking purplish/pink hue that changes colors as you tilt the bait - like the coloring of a real shad. Don't let those lunkers get away, the Triton Mike Bucca Bull Shad Swimbaits are certified trophy bass catchers with the premium components and track record to prove it.
