Strike King KVD Rattling Square Bill Crankbaits
Aggressive lil' Beast!!!
This lure is by far one of my favorites! It is so aggressive on shallow bass, Its square bill reflects and bounces off cover like no other. It has a very tight wobble, but very erratic and unexpected little jerks left and right. None of these crankbaits retrieve in the exact same action and that is what I think brings in more bass.
I prefer the natural colors, and the sexy shad colors, chartreuse is also a dynamite color. I fish these along the banks near schooling baitfish through the brush and bottom. Anytime i feel it bump the bottom I stop let is rise a little then jerk it and reel it on in and it really triggers some stikes. This lure is a tackle box must.

KVD Rattling Square Bill Review
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.

This is a really good crankbait. I had one in Sexy Ghost minnow, and I caught some fish on it, but I lost that bait. I replaced it with a Sexy Blueback Herring. I love how the rattlng version has the same action as the silent one. However, I do prefer the silent version over this one. The only complaint that I have about this bait is that the rattles can be inconsistant. With the first one that I had, it had alot of rattles, like a Bandit crankbait. The new one that I got is a real subtle one knocker. That may be good, but I would prefer more consistancy.

Yes, it should work for pike. I would suggest the 2.5 size. Although I was targeting bass, I also caught numerous pickerel on the chartreuse crazy shad color. The largest pickerel was 30 inches. I see no reason why it wouldn't work for pike. As for walleye, I'm not sure. The lure only dives 5 feet. On 14 lb. mono, I was getting a depth of around 4 feet.
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.
