Lucky Craft Fat CB BDS 4
The Lucky Craft Fat CB BDS 4 is a silent shallow running crankbait that
was designed to be extra Buoyant. The internal buoyancy design optimizes
the deflection of the crankbait off of structural elements such as wood
and rock; it behaves in similar fashion to a balsa wood bait in that
regard. The overall theme of the bait as a shallow water, heavy cover
crankbait largely influenced the design of the lip angle and hook
placement. The fixed weight of the BDS 4 increases the recovery ability
of the crankbait and enhances the deflection off of objects. Finally the
large body of the BDS 4 makes it a prime target of bigger bass and it
affords anglers the opportunity to target larger fish.
The Lucky Craft Fat CB BDS 4 measures 3"
and it weighs 3/4oz with a diving depth of about 3-4ft.
More about the BDS 4 Crankbait
The BDS 4 is the largest bait of the BDS family. Although it’s the same length as a BDS 3, it’s much fatter with a broader head and lip, which gives it some serious wobble in the water.
The lure’s large profile makes it a staple in Kelly Jordon’s tackle box.
“The key to the BDS 4 is its buoyancy,” Jordon says. “Reel it through the gnarliest cover you can find and its fat body and wide wobble allow it to deflect off obstructions and keep on chugging. If it starts to bind up in the cover, just pause it, and its ultra-high buoyancy will lift it up free of a snag, and you can continue the retrieve.”
“If you want maximum depth from a wobbler, the BDS 3 is the deep-diver of the Fat CB family,” he says. “The BDS 4 is made for crashing cover in 1 to 4 feet.
For that reason, one of Jordon’s favorite places to throw a BDS 4 is around cypress trees.
