I have been using this bait for about a year and a half, and it has become a go-to bait for me on multiple lakes. I have a few ways of rigging and retrieving that are a staple of mine. The first is a standard lead head, fishing around damns such as the Guntersville dam on Wheeler or the Wilson dam on Pickwick. It is deadly on small mouth in the current.
Perhaps the most underrated method is weightless on top of grass, such as on Guntersville. During the dog days of summer in 2013, "skitter shadding" became the sole producer of big fish for me. I wold throw it as far as I could, then twitch it back while it sat on grass. The hook up ratio is extremely high and the fish can't stand it. You can also throw this weightless into schooling fish and it is almost automatic. Just toss it out, let it fall, and make a couple of twitches. This technique earned me a 2nd place finish with Big Fish during my clubs Classic on Guntersville. Check out the vid.
