Want to know all about the 3.6" JP Hammer Shad? To keep it simple, we've actually captured a live uncensored conversation between two big fish that'll clear up any of your curiosities about this bait (The identity of these fish are being kept a secret for their own safety). For legal purposes, we'll just refer to them as Fish A and Fish B.

Fish A: "Yo, how you been big girl? Hey, quick question for you…what do you know about this bait they call the 3.6" JP Hammer Shad?"

Fish B: "Shhhhhhh! Keep it down girl! Somebody might hear you! I'll tell you but you have to PROMISE to keep it a secret."

Fish A: "You got my word. But please tell me because the suspense is killing me!"   

Fish B: "Okay, but you didn't hear this from me! Word on the street is that this bait is one bad mofo! It's got moves that'll make you salivate like a starved dog staring at a juicy rib roast. I've heard that there's been fish that have literally quit their jobs, left their families, and threw it all away just to go in search for this bait. Pretty messed up right? They say it only takes one mouthful of this thing and you're hooked! I've also heard that even if you try to fight your instincts and stay away from it, the way it moves will put you in a trance - and before you know it, you're being held in the air by some screaming human that is taking pictures of you! It's pretty freaky if you ask me.  Just talking about it makes me wanna……"

Fish A: "Holy crap! I literally have chills just thinking about this thing now! I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight! Hey…where are you going? Take me with you!

And just in case you're a little hard headed and don't believe these two fish, take a look at this bait in the video to the left and see for yourself how it can move. You'll then understand what these fish were talking about.


Bob's Tech Tip

This bait catches basically everything that swims in fresh and salt water. Drop shot it, rig it on a Scrounger Head, bounce it along the bottom on a FCT Head, fish it on the back of a Chatterbait, spinnerbait or buzzbait, fish it on a split shot rig, or fish it weightless. But whatever you do, don't rig it on a drop shot and throw it in a fish’s bed. I said don’t do it!!!

  • JP Hammer Shad 3.6"

    Posted by Dan on 5th Sep 2019

    I slam the Reds, Specks and Stripers with the 3.6 Hammer Shad. Pick up a couple bottles of Hog Tonic as well, it works wonders!

  • Don't buy these if you fish in Minnesota!

    If you fish largemouths or smallmouths and like a challenge when fishing then these are not for you.
    If you just like to go out and not work to hard at it and catch numbers of nice fish then the Hammer Shad is for you.
    I have my clients use these and even the worst fisherman can catch fish on these when dropshotting. I have used these on finesse jigs heads and Carolina rigs and they work great.
    They are my go to plastic for more then just bass.

  • Killer Drop Shot Bait

    Posted by Tom on 29th Aug 2017

    I have had incredible success with this bait drop shotting on a heavily pressured lake here in Socal. I think the heavier profile does a great job of immitating the sculpin that are prevalent in this lake. My only complaint with the bait is it's not incredibly durable. I can sometimes get 2 or 3 fish per bait but often lose the bait on the first fish.

  • Not just a drop shot bait...

    I have found so many uses for this bait its rediculous. Of course it shines in drop shot situations, but have you tried it on a ned rig? You should! It also works amazing as a subtle chatter bait trailer.

  • Just awesome!

    Posted by Adam H on 20th Apr 2017

    I fish these with little to no weight and rig them weedless. The action and slow fall drive the bass nuts!!

  • Awsome drop shot bait!

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Jan 2017

    First time using the goby and smokin shad on the river and we killed it! 5 nice smallies 2 that were 4 lbers and 2 walleyes!! This is very sick bait for drop shotting,shakey head,texas rig, and a trailer for your favorite jigs! Put one on and hang on! Tight lines :D

  • Saltwater Success!

    Posted by Gary Jr. / Germanik Angler on 31st Jul 2016

    I planned an outing to fish the outgoing tide from Robert Moses State Park. Upon arrival, we saw several fisherman with poles staked into the surf floating their bait of choice. Not being one to fish bait, I put on a 3oz. Diamond Jig with a JP Hammer Shad (and a touch of Hog Tonic). Already long story made shorter, the four bait fisherman around us expeditiously switched to lures. To his credit, my Uncle, without the help of PTL, caught a nice fluke (and a sea robin). I however, with the key to success that are PowerTeam Lures, caught two blues and another two fish which were both firsts; a Spanish mackerel and a striped bass. If those bait fisherman (or lure converts shall we say) were smarter, they would have asked what I was using. My response: 3.6" JP HAMMER SHAD in Spicy Goby. We are already discussing our next trip during the fall run. I can assure you there will be a bag of JP Hammer Shads with me.

  • Little bait for a big bite

    Posted by Mike on 23rd Feb 2016

    Small and subtle with the perfect profile to draw huge strikes. Perfect for drop shotting but so deadly as a trailer. Tore them up as a swimjig trailer right before the lakes around me froze up. Can't wait for this tournament season to bust this out.
