I have owned an AC Shiner 250 in Silver/Black for about 20 years. It catches bass better than any lure I have ever used. This one lure has caught well over 100 fish and is still going strong. I don't know what it is about AC Shiners, but if I put a similar sized and color floating Rapala on in the same conditions, it doesn't catch 1/10 as many fish as the AC Shiner. This bait is magic!
