Dark Matter Fishaholic Finback Shad are going to become your favorite soft plastic bait! These shads were designed by Rich "Fishaholic" Janitschek who is one of the top anglers in the country. Rich grew up fishing a wide variety of shads and this design combines many of the features that gave him the best results. He added a few new things as well. They feature a slim profile with a unique fin on the back that will help prevent an accumulation of weeds that can end up on the hook. The Finback Shad has a tight side to side erratic wobble that's important when fishing a bait that has to send off vibration and have a flashy action to it. The paddletail is a diverse design that can be fished in multiple scenarios. It works great during the day and at night and will attract hungry fish. It easily mimics peanut bunker, herring, smelt and other medium size baitfish that a wide variety of species prey on.
Here's what Fishaholic has to say about his shads: "Dark Matter Fishaholic Finback Shad were crafted to catch your targeted predatory saltwater and freshwater species. These shads have been tested up and down the East Coast catching striped bass, snook, tarpon, redfish, bluefish, weakfish, sea trout, musky, pike, walleye largemouth and small mouth bass and more!"
Dark Matter Fishaholic Finback Shad are available in four colors in 5". Choose from Chartreuse/Silver Flake, Olive Over White/Silver Flake, White/Silver Flake and Wonderbread. They come four to a pack. The Dark Matter Fishaholic Holiday Bundle includes a 30 oz Yeti cup and four packs of Finback Shads. One pack of each color.

Last night used these on the beach and was killing it all night long. The flavor the the evening was white but they will go for any! Hands down you need to get some of these if you don’t have them already!
Was down to 3 shads and was told that fishaholic shads were the perfect profile swim shad to have in your surf bag. With all that is happening right now, J&H delivered it really quick and the baits perform fantastic. They even fit my vmc jig heads and stay on the hook rather well. They can be retrieved at various speeds without tipping over. Thank you!!!
These finback shads have produced for me all season. The hook hides right behind the fin and cuts down on weeds. These produce vibration on the drop and swim beautifully on the retrieve. When all else fails I can usually find the fish with the 1.5 oz chartreuse.
