Strike King Pro-Model Crankbaits - Series 6
bought this a while back and went to a favorite lake recently, lake is 2 feet over summer pool and there is a large submerged rock about 7 feet underwater. i wanted to fish this right next to the ledge of the rock but since the rock is not visible because of highwater i was blindly casting. first off the cranbait did not run true so at first cast i was dissapointed...but not defeated. this is the first instance a strike king hasnt been great. however 3rd cast i caught a 4 pounder! my personal best outta that lake. coincidense or not im buying more hopefully these will run true. you only need one color, sexy shad.

I have purchased a dozen or so of these. I have fished them on Pickwick, Kentucky, and Barkley lakes. I also just fished with them in a tournament on the Arkansas river. I have caught a lot of fish with these in the 3lb range and if you are looking to catch a limit these do a nice job. I have used the sexy shad color with great results. I also use the Bomber A as an alternative. The one thing I would say is that I have to tune these baits to get them to run true. To me this is not that big of a thing as it only takes a few casts. The hooks are extremely sharp and I have not lost many fish once hooked.

i got a few of these thinking theyd be just as good at the rapala dt 16s but cheaper. i was wrong. these things are made very cheaply. and they dont run true out of the box. spend the extra couple bucks and get a rapala.

I was very satisfied with this product. I like the action, and it casts exceptionally well. The Sexy Shad color is great and the lure shows a great, tight wobble. Some of my friends told me to avoid the Strike King crankbaits but i saw this lure for sale so I could not resist. Good action, good value, good color, good lure. I have heard that some of these lures need to be tuned out of the package, but the one i bought works fine. The stock hooks are fine, but i replaced them with owners. Red owner in the back and white feathered owner in the back. Works great on finicky fish. The bill on this lure is stronger than some other crankbaits i have used which is a plus. I seem to get more strikes when banging it off cover and the bill has held up fine. The best ways to work this lure is a stop and go retrieve or a burning fast retrieve, the bait will not bail out on a fast retrieve like some other crankbaits. My best fish on this lure was a four pound largemouth, but i have caught numerous largemouth, smallmouth, walleye, and even a pike. I recommend this lure to anyone.
