Size: When angling for bass, choose a 4-inch model and pair it with a ½-ounce jighead.

My 3 year old enjoyed playing with this for a few minutes, but the magnets for the fishing pole are not strong enough to actually lift the fish. We eventually just used our fingers rather than the poles. It still was fun and entertaining for about 10 minutes.
Construction: This bait is precisely the dimensions of threadfin shad…and menhaden. Match the hatch, baby. Fish-fooling Feature: The boot-shaped tail section of this lure is where the magic happens.
