Low-pitch knock


I left this for the end because I wanted to be able to talk about the weight transfer system first. Because I believe that may very well be what’s making the noise inside the CT35 but I’m not totally sure. What I do know is that this bait gives off a rather unique, somewhat quieter sound. It’s almost like a one knocker-style bait with just one weight knocking back and forth but it’s not as hard of a sound.

That’s why I think it may be the magnetic weight transfer system allowing the ball to rock back and forth just a little. Either way, it sounded to me like something that would make it even better for those high pressure days when the bite is tough. And I have at least proven that theory once already on a trip to Lake Eufaula in south Alabama. After a tough day of fishing with my dad where we caught only 8 fish between us in 10 hours of fishing, I pulled this bait out on the muddy riprap near the ramp and caught two nice fish in about 15 casts before we left.

That really opened my eyes to how special this bait could be. I look forward to those tough days now to see if I can use this bait again to unlock their unwilling jaws and further my theory. But for now, color me impressed by the Ark CT35 Squarebill. I’d suggest you try one yourself.
