Wakebaits which one

30 posts in this topic

Tell me about your wakebaits.  I fish open water rocky bottom lakes here with both smb and lmb 

 

Seems perfect for a wakebait due to lack of weeds

Number 1 wake bait for this year has been Strike King KVD 2.5 Wake bait - about $6 - caught dozens of LMB’s, SMB’s and a few pickerel with them. 

 

I fish the KVD primarily at dusk into the night around weed lines and over submerged grass beds for LMB’s. 

 

For smallies I throw the KVD in slick water like the tail out of pools with a down and across cast - skate it slowly across the tail outs. 

 

Number 2 wake bait has been the Spro BBZ 1 rat - they make it in quite a few sizes - draws EXPLOSIVE strike from smallies.

I am gonna order some KVD - I hate that they have all sorts of fancy colors but no BLACK!

 

I do best in low light with an all black bait - I guess I will be painting

Lucky Craft LC Wake is my favorite, the joint and bucktail add a nice almost slithering motion to it. For awhile they seemed discontinued, and they still don't have my favorite color but the 1.5's seem to be back in stock at TW.

Very nice fish.  I’m starting to throw bigger baits - would you mind sharing the info on the baits - who makes them and how much do they weigh.

You will like them, it's one of those baits I pick up almost every trip if the fish are up fairly shallow.

BPS has one called The Egg. Has been working good for me.

This is a good bait but my favorite is the IMA rattlin roumba

I have so many.  I only end using the cheapo's and they work.  I have some that are $100 plus but I always pop on the 10 one at dusk and they get smashed!
