The 9 cm Monkey Shad by M-WAR quickly became one of our favorite softbaits for perch with it's discrete profile and subtle swimming action. However, except perch we just kept catching one nice pike after the other, mixed up with several nice zander on this lure, and then the idea of a larger pike and zander version was born. After talking to several skilled pike anglers from Poland, France, Germany, Sweden and several other countries, we came to the conclusion that 14 cm would be the ideal pike size for most waters and anglers.
This one will catch you plenty of pike, both big ones and good numbers, but what we like most about this lure is the price and versatility - for not even 7€, you will get three pike softbaits that can be rigged in several different ways. Our three favorites are:
1. On a shallow rig (Gator Stinger Small)
2. On a traditional jig head (SPRO Jighead HD 90 in 10/0)
3. On an offset hook for weedless fishing (Owner Beast 10/0)
14 cm, comes in 3 pack. Available in Arknasas Shiner, Frozen, Kiwi Bite, Motorpike, Hot Pike and Ghost Roach. 22 gr.
