A Bass Pro Exclusive! 2011 Bassmaster Classic's winning lure!
Scrumptious bass treat
Rumbles down to a 3'-6' plane
Square lip prevents most snags
Perfect color schemes
This overbuilt chunk of a scrumptious bass treat rumbles down to a 3'-6' plane in both sizes, the ideal depth for a do-it-all cranker. The key with this crank is to bump it off cover—the square lip prevents most snags, and it's the easiest way to indicate to Mr. Greensides that this is his most attractive option. Add the perfect color schemes, and you're in the money!

The Strike King® KVD Rattling Square Bill Crankbait is one of the most reliable crankbaits that I have used. It should serve you well should you chose to go with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassmaster19999 My Favorite Squarebill
This squarebill runs true and just catches fish. If the fish aren't spooked and I'm not throwing this lure in the silent version, I'll be throwing this rattling version. I never had to adjust. The lure has been holding up after smashing it into a lot of structure and the action stays consistent, exactly what I love. If it's got KVD's name on it, you better bet I'll have it. Excellent lure, you just can't beat the sexy shad!

If you are looking for a shallow water square bill crankbait that continually puts bass in the boat, look no more. Simply replace the factory trebles with red #4 Gamakatsu EWG treble hooks and go hit your favorite shallow water spot. This bait beats all others, use the 1.5 size or nearest match to the hatch. Happy fishing!

Great bait for Fall or Spring and the chartruesse color is fatastic for stained water which we often experience uplake in the South. Slowly pull this bait through cover, (wood or tops of submerged grass). Quickly snap or pop your rod and crash the bait into the cover / structure. Excellent bait when used in this manner. I have caught most of my fish when the bait is making contact with structure.

I have a KVD 1.5, and it is silent, no rattles. The Strike King catalog lists the KVD 1.5 as .."no internal rattles for a silent approach". Your page shows the KVD 1.5 and 1.0 with rattles, so need to make sure that is accurate.
They sell both types, on with rattles and one without. The school of thought are two fold, one if the water is super clear then throw the silent. If dingy throw the rattles or after they quit biting throw the silent style.
They both catch fish, but to make it easier: the place where you're fishing, does it have bluegill? Go with bluegill. Does it have much more abundant minnow baitfish, shiners, shad, herring, alewives? River Minnow.
The sexy shad and black back chartreuse have worked great for me. The yellow and white colors show great in the murky water. I just ordered one of the chartreuse crazy shad for a little extra flash. It appears to have very small reflectors on the side to give a little more shine. Haven't used it yet though so can't recommend it yet. Hope this helps. Happy fishing!
