Bucca’s Baby Bull Shad

About this project

“Triton” Mike Bucca began designing swimbaits over 10 years ago. As a long time guide on Georgia’s Lake Altoona, Triton Mike noticed few swimbait manufacturers made swimbaits for non West Coast anglers. So mike began designing swimbaits by hand in patterns that would work throughout the country.

Since then, Triton Mike’s Bull Shad has become one of the best known swimbaits among swimbait enthusiasts. However, his handmade swimbaits range from $50-$90 and many of the sizes are bigger than some anglers are used to throwing.

Catch Co. has spent the past year working with Mike to create the Baby Bull Shad, a 3.75” version of his famous swimbait. Our goal was to create an amazing, quality swimbait that can be fished on any body of water anywhere in the country – at an affordable price.



This product is available exclusively at Karl’s Bait & Tackle in limited quantities. A full release will be coming mid-Summer 2019.
