COLLIERVILLE, TN – Building on the growing popularity of its predecessor, the Caffeine Shad, Strike King Lure Company is excited to introduce the brand new Swimming Caffeine Shad to the fishing world!   The Swimming Caffeine shad is a baitfish-profiled soft plastic bait that has swimming action built into the tail design.

It comes in two sizes, a 5-inch version as well as a smaller 4-inch offering. It can easily be fished weightless, on a jighead, as a trailer, on a weighted hook, and it also excels when rigged in umbrella-type applications.

“The Swimming Caffeine Shad is a very versatile lure that I’m excited about adding to my arsenal,” remarks B.A.S.S. Elite Series pro Mark Menendez. “It will be a valuable tool that will work throughout various seasons to enable me to catch more fish.”   The Swimming Caffeine Shad will initially be offered in 14 fish enticing colors and can be found at better sporting goods retailers everywhere.
