MORE BASS IN THE BOAT SIMPLY PUT!
I read the reviews about the eyes and paint coming off didnt have that problem but if you watch BASS PROS and see KVD use these you would know they work best in the sandy bottom with vegatation so you can sink it into the weeds and then rip it out! Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, I pulled out My first Northern, 2.5 lbs 25 inches, My first small Mouth, 3lbs 12 oz 19 inches, and My biggest Large Mouth EVER! 4 lb 2oz and 20 inches, know what they always hit on the fall I just ripped it out of the weeds or off the bottom and the fish put themself on! Cant get easier than that! Using Quantum Tour Pt with Quantum KVD Med Hvy 6'6 using Berkley Crystal Fire Line 30lb test, its a no brainer! Here are my Fish below!

This lure simply catches fish all day long. Just figure out how they want it whether it be fast or slow.

Best Lipless Crank for the money
Nothing pulls bass out of the grass like this bait! You can work it with short pulls and pauses, rip it and kill it on the retrieve to trigger them, or yo-yo it...there doesn't seem to be a wrong way to fish this crankbait. Right now on my home lake the bass are piled up on grassy channel edges leading to the spawning areas and they will smash this bait for an hour and a half straight before getting used to it. A change of colors or retrieves often activates them again, though. When the sexy shad color stopped pulling fish two days ago I switched to the Sexy Lavender Shad and landed a 9lb, 4 oz pre-spawn beast that inhaled this bait! Have a selection of colors on hand, but the 1/2 oz is all you need for size. Just make sure you have a good burner reel to keep it high and moving fast until you're ready to drop it.

Smallmouth Attack These
If you wanna catch smallmouth when the bass have left the spawn then get some of these in your tackle box and tie one on when the fishing gets tough. i fish lake st. clair from april till september and the only lure i fish with is this one. never been shutout all season long , sometimes they wont go for the sexy or chartruse so throw a gold one they hold up well. only one sugestion, i change hooks to kvd trebles, the stock hooks are good but i perfer kvd 1xshort2xstrong

They are all great because of the rattling noise it makes and how it swims. But the best color would probably be the ones that are very shiny with some blue and red on them. I have about 5 of them and they rack up the fish.
I don't know about this particular lake, but the most productive color for bass anywhere I have fished has been the Gizzard Shad and the Bleeding Gizzard Shad. My next favorite colors have been Chrome Sexy Shad and Chrome with Blue Back.
When it comes to lipless crankbaits you can't go wrong with any of the chrome colored ones. If you're fishing shallow cover and grass try a red/craw pattern one and rip it out of the weeds. Regardless of where you are in any part of the country or any body of water these basic colors will produce.
Yes you can, but it won't dive as deep because of the floating properties of braided line. I prefer using this lure with 15 to 17 lb test mono or copolymer lines with a 7' med action rod. In very clear water I'll go to even lighter test line.
I have fished this Lure with monofilament and braid line (Sufix 832) and works Awesome with both. The braid definitely gives you more feedback and faster reaction when working the lure. Also instead of just reeling the lure in - cast and on retrieval about every three to four cranks pop the rod tip twice and Hang On.!. G…
Absolutely. I prefer monofilament for my crankbaits because of casting distance and how the line stretches when battling a fish. Sometimes braid can tear the hooks from a fish's mouth but if you set the drag properly there is no reason why you couldn't use braided line.
Some people think the visibility of the braided line will spook wary fish but a bait, such as this, retrieved at high speeds should be fine.
They will run about 2 to 3 feet down on a steady retrieve. They also work great on the fall, they stay straight up and wiggle all the way to the bottom. My favorite way to fish them is to yo yo them in, by that I let them fall on a slack line reel it up to top and repeat. Bass will hit it on the fall watch the line. Good luck.
There are many answers to this question - most are that it can go as deep as you need it to go depending on the line and your speed of retreive. I do not have information on the lures that are best for the KY lake and TN river.
I have fished this Lure in a lake that once was forty plus acres now down to about an acre. I have had Awesome success with the Red Eye Sexy Shad – Chrome Sexy and Red Sexy all with Rattle… Also instead of just reeling the lure in - cast and on retrieval about every three to four cranks pop the rod tip twice and Hang On.!.

Silent is a good option on heavily pressured fish, but that does not mean they won't take a rattle. Do some research on line and find out what kind of bait fish are in the lake. Match the bait with the lure. Crayfish are always on basses menu try crayfish colors. Try different techniques on the retrieve start off fast and work your way to slow, I get a lot of hits with this lure on the drop. Check out the action as it drops it still wiggles and stays upright even when on the bottom... Tight lines!!
when it comes to pressure Lakes, the puzzle changes daily. The best color is the one the fish prefer that day. It's believed that you should try and match the bait fish and make adjustments from that point. Same goes for technique and yes the silent red eye shad is a good choice. There was a time when a small tackle box and a few of your favorite lures would do the trick, that time has passed. Diversity is the name of the game today.
You have to "Match The Hatch" if there's shad, use a shad color, like Sexy Shad, or Bone. If water is stained, use the Chartreuse Sexy Shad. Those have worked for me. As far as techniques, you have to vary your retrieve. Don't just chuck and wind. Reel, Reel, pause has worked for me. The bass nornally hit it on the pause.
Really depends on the natural features of the bank your talking about and where the fish are hiding in those features. For me personally, I tend to stay away from crank baits near the bank because of the increased likelihood of weeds on most of the lakes I fish (not a place for treble hooks). That may not be that big of an issue for you. Possibly a better bet to go with the 1/4 oz but again in really depends.
That depends on a number of factors. In shallower or really clear water the 1/4 oz might be better, but in reality, let the fish tell you which they prefer. Try both and find out which they are hitting the best.
I bank fish on Fort Stewart using the 1/2 oz and i have had great results. I have never fished the 1/4 oz just simply because the 1/2 oz catches fish all day for me. I either use a fast or real slow retrieve. I have tried the yo-yo technique but havent came up with anything.
