Strike King KVD 8.0 Magnum Crankbait
Designed after the incredibly popular and effective KVD Squarebill Crankbaits, comes the new Strike King KVD 8.0 Magnum Crankbait, a beefed up shallow running plug intended to seek out bigger bass. Big baits catch big bass and the KVD 8.0 Squarebill is just such a bait - a big bodied, shallow running crankbait capable of imitating larger forage species such as bluegill, shad and tilapia that big bass primarily feed upon. The original versions of the Strike King KVD Squarebill were a game changer for shallow cranking. They possess an erratic, side to side action and vicious deflections that incite a reaction strike from nearby bass. Keeping that same action, the new KVD 8.0 Crankbait more accurately represents the meals bigger bass target.
Shallow water cranking has long been dominated by the small, tight wobbled plugs that although effective, gave anglers no way to filter out smaller bass. Fishing schools of bass on ledges, points or humps meant you'd have to sort through piles of 12 inchers hoping to get a bigger bite before the school shutoff. With the larger profile of the KVD 8.0, Strike King has enabled anglers a better way of searching for big bites. The larger size of the bait also enhances the action created from deflections which can be manipulated even further by skilled crankbait fishermen. No you can work your crankbait through fields of timber by simply crashing the bait into the structure and then allowing the buoyancy to free it from any obstructions before continuing your retrieve. Anglers fishing lakes such as Falcon or Lake Norman have long used these techniques to coax strikes from bass that are strictly reacting to the baits presence in spite of numerous food sources readily available to them.
The new Strike King KVD 8.0 Magnum Crankbait measures 4.5" weighs 3/4oz and dives from 3 - 7 feet. We offer the crankbait in many excellent colors.
