These baits are a favorite of anglers in the springtime and "pre spawn" seasons. One reason may be that Geckos simply resemble a predator on spawning bass and their fry. But, the only reason that truly matters to us is that bass hammer Geckos hard in the spring! The Geckos' extreme realism make them a great choice in highly pressured bass waters because it mimics their natural food. The Gecko is also deadly from post-spawn through fall on big pieces of structure, such as points and humps. Don't forget to rig it weightless and use it as a topwater around grass mats.
