Can u email me the number of species caught on the slam shady and the list of them as well
Yes sir. It’s all documented at the bottom of this post – https://www.saltstrong.com/articles/how-to-use-rig-retrieve-slam-shady-paddletails/
Hey. Why aren’t you out fishing? 😂
Can you post the link to “how to rig the Texas Eye jig-head”? I saw it a while ago and can’t find it.
Around the 34:14 mark. https://www.saltstrong.com/articles/best-weighted-hooks-saltwater-fishing/
Scented PaddlerZ rigged upsidedown on an Eye Strike Texas Eye. The pocket of the belly acts as a weedless protector for the hook when rigged upside down without having to skin hook.
Delighted to hear this good news for Salt Strong and for anglers! The Slam Shady Bomber is my favorite inshore lure. It weeds out the smaller trout and redfish pounce on them. Press on, brothers!
Thank you, brother Toby! Yes, the Slam Shady BOMBER is amazing (of course, that lure is only available at http://www.fishstrong.com – not Bass Pro). Appreciate you buddy!
Joe , Luke. Tony, Austin and Wyatt, this was an outstanding video of the best uses of, the history of and the best sizes and designs of the Slam Shady series of soft lures. Good job fellows. I’m proud to have been one of the earlier members and see this fishing club grow.
Consider it done Joe,I wasn;t aware of this,Thanks for keeping me in the loop,I am sorry to say,it looks like Wyatt got here just in time to witness the third “fish kill’ I have seen since I relocated here.One in 1983,1989 and now 2021,This really saddens me.
I use the zman chin lock weighted hooks for Zman plastics. What are reasons Tony prefers those hard to rig on Zman twist locks?
I am at the point where I am ready to dispose of all my soft plastics except for slam shadies, including those Gulps! . Also only zman jig heads. I wish there were a place to donate all this unused tackle.
Congratulations on your success! I like that I can now pick up the Slam Shady just about anywhere in my travels if needed and not have to wait on shipping. I will still primarily order from Salt Strong, though, as I LOVE the discount. As stated, I have saved much more than the membership cost on the products I’ve purchased! Good luck with your big C coming up, Joe. I pray it is only routine and not a result of problems. I’ll be doing the same thing next week.😉
It would be interesting to see the slam shady color on a top water or a hard bait to see how well it would work.
