This crank bait has pearl blue sides fading as you go down the side of the bait. There is a faint yellow strip running along the lateral line. The back is a steel pearl gray, scaled. Because of the pearl and sparkledescent paints used on this bait it comes alive in the light, just as real shad would, this is an awesome shad imitation. There is just the right amount of ultra fine glitter added to the clear coat to create a sparkle 3-D affect not found in many factory painted lures.
