This 8-sided beast takes the concept of the soft jerkbait to another level. Like a faceted bead vs. a round bead, the Strike King® KVD Perfect Plastics Ocho's smooth beveled sides reflect light in different directions, creating a flash effect unlike that of any other softbait. Bass respond readily! Precision molded of supersoft plastic, with a slow sink rate, the versatile Ocho is ideal for jerkbaiting and wacky rigging. All KVD Perfect Plastics lures feature soft, salt impregnated plastic and an exclusive coffee scent that masks human scents and oils to produce more and longer bites.

I've used these for a couple of years now and can honestly say that I've caught more bass with them than any other lure. Rigged whacky style the bass can't resist'em. And the coffee scent seems to keep the bass hanging on longer. I would've given a 5-star rating except for the fact that they tear up pretty easily. Using them with the O-Whacky tool helps, though.

These ochos perform well. I caught several nice bass last fall at Kerr in a tournament on this bait.

I dont like it.
I am probably just spoiled, but i hated these worms. the plastic is not soft, but is somehow easy to tear off the hook. I dont know how Strike king accomplished that, but they did. These have TERRIBLE action on the fall, as in looking like someone threw a cigarette butt in the water that was about 6 inches long. it just looks fake pure and simple. the solution: GARY YAMAMOTO SENKO. those are the best. they have supersoft plastic, which does tear, but its worth it. perfect salt content on the senkos, they fall flat with a little wiggle to the tips which is irresistible to bass. buy those: you wont get the same quality from the ocho.

Rig it on a 5/0 NON OFFSET hook. i say non offset in capitals because it will twist yoru line into rope if u use an offset hook. just dont do it. and, btw, dont even buy this lure. it has bad plastic and terrible action on the fall. gary yamamoto senkos are the only bait with the right plastic and fall for soft stickbaits.
If your looking for a Jig head hook I would go with Tru Tungsten's Flea Flicker jig head. Weightless is good but you will get a lot more action using this jig head. The Flea Flicker shakes as it falls and the bait wobbles more as it shakes. It will not fall that fast when you use an 3/32 oz Flea Flicker. I don't fish them weightless that much any more because I get a lot more fish this way. (even in shallow water) Hope this has help you
I catch them all the time on Chickamauga Lake on the Tn River. I use the Tru Tungsten Flea Flicker in 3/32 oz and wacky rig it. As the rig falls the jig head wobbles back and forth which makes the bait wobble even more and since it is weighted it will wobble more and you can fish it deeper. I fish it shallow also because it does not speed up the fall that much. It still falls at a low speed. My point is that by using the flea flicker or a lightly weight hook or jighead you can increase the action and vibration of the bait which makes it alot easier for the fish to locate in murky water. and believe me I know what you mean when you say murky water. more like watered down mud sometimes. I hope this will help you catch some fish and good luck
I primarily fish this in murky water myself and yes it works. The green colors seem to work best for me. what i usually do is cast them let them sit on the bottom for a minute pull them up and usually a bass hits it on the way up
Yes, the Strike King Ocho will catch fish in merky water. Darker colors like June Bug seem to catch fish in dirty water. I found the best way to rig this worm is Whacky style. It will also, work on a Texas rig.
I've used this worm almost every time I have fished this year. The pond I fish is pretty murky with a lot of moss. The only color I use out there is watermelon red flake rigged really simple. Just run the hook through about an inch of the worm, pop the hook out and you're ready to go. I fish these weightless because almost every fish I've caught out there has been while it's still dropping. I tend to catch 2 or 3 two pounders every time I'm out, but just last week with this worm I caught 9 bass, one of which weighing in at 5 pounds!
