In conclusion


The Ned Ocho is another fine bait in the endless lineup of Strike King products. Surprise, surprise. Strike King does a good job of finding a niche in a bait category and filling it with something a little different. They’ve done that again here with the Ned Ocho, incorporating a few key variations into the design with the bait’s vertical channels and taller profile. And the Ned Ocho’s density is right on point to create an optimal bite-per-bait ratio.

All in all, this is a solid little bait to give us one more option for the Ned rig and something new for the wacky rig as well; perhaps even more precisely designed for the latter, albeit a likely fortuitous happenstance. Okay, I’m getting a little poetic here towards the end. Time to wrap it up. ‘Til next time.
