  • Big, meaty profile attracts plenty of attention
  • Waving legs and dual tail flaps do a number on big bass
  • Enhanced with coffee bean granules and coffee bean oil for unmatched scent and taste
Other than the big, meaty body, we don't know how these unique Softbaits got their names. After all, the Rodent and Baby Rodent's waving legs and dual tail flaps suggest a different kind of critter altogether. But there's no doubting that the Rodents will do a number on big bass. Strike King's level of detail is unmatched, and the profile and action will attract plenty of attention even in heavy cover. Jig it or rig it, and hold on tight! Strike King's Rodents are enhanced with real coffee bean granules and coffee bean oil to give the tubes an earthy tinge and a naturally strong scent/taste big bass are eager to slurp up. Not only does the coffee scent/flavor entice and encourage fish to hold the bite longer, it also works to mask human scents. They are salt-impregnated too!
Strike King® KVD Perfect Plastics Rodent or Baby Rodent 4.5 5 77 77
Great plastic teaser Bought a package of this Strike King Softbait Rodent and got a chance to fish a private pond the next day. I knew there were lots of bass in the 100 acre pond but Jigging was not working neither were crank baits, top water or rattle-traps. I rigged one of these rodents up Texas style and started trying to hit the dark spots around the banks of the pond that I could throw to. Johnny Morris signature reel and a Falcon MF 7 ft rod made long casts a pleasure. Long story short of it; in two hours had 6 nice 2 to 3 pounders that really tore up the rodents. I bought two more packs at Bass Pro Shops the next day. March 26, 2014
Bass Love These I have caught many bass with these, so far I have used Big Tex and Green Pumpkin with both producing fish. My favorite way to fish these is on a Texas rig with a 1/4 ounce tungsten weight. You have to find out what kind of retrieve the bass like. What has worked best for me is 2 hops and then do about a 2-5 second pause keeping the line tight to feel a bite. I also love the coffee scent on these baits, and so do the fish! But, make sure when you are buying a pack to find a pack with the most intact baits, some of the baits will be missing limbs in the package, but they still work fine and attract fish! March 13, 2014
Versitile Very good bait for trailer or otherwise. A little costly but good bait March 11, 2014
Bass love these bass hold on to these longer so you can get a good hook set March 3, 2014

This is a really good bait for the smallies. It will probably be better to downsize to the baby rodent, but either will catch them.

A: 
I do use the baby rodent in green or pumpkin colors flipping in the rivers i fish here at home in michigan, Bait works real well when the smallies are holding in the weeds out of the current and are unwilling to chase other baits, Actually wood or weeds out of the current or any structure on the shore this will work well. Good reaction bait whenyou drop it ontheir heads. When smallies are active i have much better success fishing the bottom more actively with a tube bait or a football head jig with a craw trailer

I use a no. 5 owner hook with the screw lock. This is better for me than texas rigging because you get longer life out of the bait. Texas rigging worhs good but bait life is short lived.

use a worm hook and fix it texas rig, hide the eye and line in the lure. If you are doing sight/spawning bed fishing - I recommend to not use any weight - just drop the lure in the bed and raise and lower the lure, walking it accross the bed - it will prodrude strike after strike. I have had great success with this bait - watermelon with red flake.

A: 
I prefer to rig this on a texas rig setup with a 4.0 wide gap hook. This allows you to throw in wood with out hang ups. Bait is really durable. It is also meaty so make sure your hook is in the center of the bait, or you'll really have a tough time getting the hook through the bait on hook set.

A: 
it depends what kind of fishing you are doing. you want a heavier, pegged weight (3/8oz-3/4oz) for fishing heavy cover so it falls straight through the cover. if fishing shallow water you may not need a weight and you will get a slower rate of fall. Use a 4/0 to 5/0 size hook. hope this helps

I have tried both methods. For me the best is to rig it on a finesse type hooks the kind with the weight at the head of the hook. I run the hook so it exits from the side. This way it lies flat no matter how it lands. and the claws always face up.

A: 
No weight and use a 3/0 or 4/0 worm hook; hide the hook eye and remaining line. Sight fish by bouncing lure in the spawing bed, stop - repeat after a few seconds. The fish will be irritated and curious. It will come right up to the lure while it is still - then move it a little and HOLD ON. Great succes with watermelon with red flake.

A: 
i like to rig the regular rodent with a 4/0 hook and the baby with a 2/0. This has worked well with me and i have not lost any amount of fish like this. I always peg both sizes 95% of the time because i consider this a superior flipping or pitching bait. 1/2 oz is as heavy as i go unless you are really fishing extremely heavy weeds. Regular weeds or wood or docks i almost always use a 3/8oz. as this allows for a slower fall. I suppose you could texas rig this unweighted and drag it over the slop but i think other soft plastics would work better for this

A: 
I like it with weight. I typically throw a zoom trick worm if I am weightless. It really performs. Back to this bait. Depending on the depth I am fishing at and the speed of the boat or how fast your walking the bank depends on the weight. I like to fish this bait slow, so I throw it with light weight like 1/8th oz or 1/4oz when going slow and shallow. This also helps with spooking weary fish. Must be bullet style weight. This way you can throw it on wood. I use a 4.0 wide gap hook. Make sure you texas rig the bait and keep the hook in the center of the bait otherwise the hookset will be tough unless your fishing with a telephone pole haha. If are more of a power fisherman then you will want heavier weight to get your bait where you want it right away. Typically a 3/8oz or 1/2oz will get you where you want in that scenario. If your punching through thick vegitation then at minimal you need a 3/4oz weight preferrably a 1 oz weight. Make sure you have the right rod in your hand with this type of fishing. A lighter rod will break on a 2lb fish with 4lbs of grass on it. Trust me on that one. Good luck. Hope this helps.

A: 
You can rig it w/ a weight or w/out. Just depends on where the fish are. If you need to get it to the bottom where the brush is, you're going to need a weight. My favorite way to fish these types of baits is as a jig trailer. If you're going to rig it weedless, use an EWG hook, size 2/0.
