The principle design feature of the Xorus Rolling Shad is it’s oversized tail which produces a strong vibration that can be felt right up to the rod even when there is little current.
Bouncing along the bottom is an effective method of fishing the Rolling Shad, this is achieved by letting it hit bottom and then lifting the rod tip to draw the shad up through the water, then drop the the rod tip to allow it to sink back down.
Depending on the current you’ll need to retrieve a bit of line as it drops back, but there’s no need to keep in direct contact as it drops back, in fact if you keep an eye on your line you may be lucky enough to see the slack disappear as a bass takes the lure.
By varying the amount of rod lift, the speed, the amount of pause on the bottom and your retrieve you can mix it up until you find out how the bass want the bait presented.
Obviously the Rolling Shad can be fished in many different ways and with any head / hook style combination that you think will suit, it helps to balance the weight of the head to the conditions you are fishing.
