I think I have had a few issues with the Keitech Easy Shiners, too, where I lose the paddle tail, reel back in a paraplegic.

But, one that I will NOT fish around bluegills, if they are present, is a Yamamoto Single Tail Grub in a smaller size. It has the best swimming action of any such grub I have ever tossed; but, I lose tails on almost everything I throw, I suppose about 3 out of 4. They are much worse for me than the Keitechs.

What often makes these small plastics winners is the thinness and elasticity of the plastic between the body and the tail. Both of the plastic baits have great action in the water . . . but you can have your retirement savings "pecked away" by these little savage beasts called panfish.

Big Bite Baits 4" Swimming Jerk Minnows work nicely, I've caught smallies, largies, pike, drum, and lake trout (the only two I've ever caught ice fishing) on them either on a jighead or as a chatterbait trailer (more for largies and pike).

Kietech Swing Impact Fat. Can't wait to get the new morning dawn color. I just got some of the black and blues and can't wait to get out and try them out too.

I've taken a shine to the Easy Shiner 4" up here in Missouri.
