Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics Caffeine Shads
Excellent performance from a soft plastic
A friend of mine introduced me to this Perfect Plastics shad pattern when going for largemouth on his private lake. At first glance, they look like pretty much any other plastic, but the bass sure didn't seem to think so. We easily hauled in 20+ piece each over 3 hours of fishing near the bottom by the natural cover in the lake. Quite a few 2-3 lb. fish made for a lot of fun and he's hauled in some 5+ lb. fish on this same lure. As others have already pointed out, they are not terribly durable and you can expect that your Texas rig won't hold a weedless hook setup after a few strikes, but that's a small price to pay for such and effective lure. I've bought some of my own since that very successful day fishing with this pattern in baby bass color.

I saw Kevin using these baits in a how to video. I really liked the action on them. I knew the bass would be tempted to the limits. I took my daughter Holly with me and she caught 8 and one close to 5 lbs. I caught this guy and he destroyed the bait both the head and tail gone. Later we would catch one over 8 lbs but that's another story. So do I think these baits are good I'm buying all the ones I can find because fishing has just started.

A buddy of mine bought a pack of Caffeine Shad in the color of Smokey Shad. He said he caught 2 small bass with them. So I bought me a couple of packs. Today my same buddy and I went to a local pond. We tried all different types of lures varying from crankbaits to jerkbaits, and the only thing the fish would bite were the Caffeine Shad Smokey Shad. That's the only color the fish seemed to be interested in because we didn't have a single bite with any other lure. We caught 4 fish in 4 casts with this lure and I have to say, it is my new 'go to' lure. The only down side is the durability. We used one Shad per fish. Luckily i bought 2 packs because I used all but 2 in one pack for the day. Other than that, overall best lure I've ever used, bar none!

Best Plastic Jerk Bait
Not sure why I started using the Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics but glad I discovered them. They glide like a wounded minnow and I never used a plastic bait the fish reacted by swallowing it so deep that the only release was to cut the line. They smell so good I'd eat them. Give them a little twitch and the fish find them like live bait or swim them along with a twitching patient retrieve. For deeper water try a split shot 12 to 18 inches above the bait. Big smallmouth bass love them in river or lakes. A can't miss presentation.
