A Bass Pro Exclusive! 2011 Bassmaster Classic's winning lure!
This overbuilt chunk of a scrumptious bass treat rumbles down to the ideal depth for a do-it-all cranker. The key with this Strike King™ 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.

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 CRANK BAIT
I have been using these lures for about 2 yrs and I can say they are fish productive. i chose the squere bill for its running pattern also a prefer the shallow range due to the location that i like using them also the squere bill snags less on the rocks. the best colorts that have worked for me are all white, the sexy shad color, and the red shad those have worked best for me in the california delta. they are easy and fun to use, they are priced reasonobly and they come in many different colors.

best crank bait i have found
This has become my go to bait for fishing in a lake with average deepth of 10 with weeds. works threw weeds well and when it gets hung up you can rip it free most of the time.

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.
The 1.5 is smaller then the 2.5. Let the fish tell you what they want, sometimes they want a smaller profile bait sometimes they want a larger one. Also always try to match the hatch. If you see that the forage fish seem to be smaller in your area go with the 1.5 and vice versa with the 2.5. Its always good to have a few in each size readily available.
Basically size and that's it. You have to study the forage in your fishing area to figure out which size you want. I fish in the Susquehanna River and the forage here is usually small so I go with the 1.5. Plus I am a smallmouth fisherman so smallmouth will like the smaller bait.
I'm not afraid to use mine in a grassy area. I try to make sure that they tick the top of the grass and weed beds. I've used them in ponds in my area and have been sucessful in catching bass with them.
