The perfect size

bass fishing crankbait in hand

I think folks get a little carried away with crankbait sizes at times. It’s not always necessary to use a big bait to catch big bass. I like the size of this particular crankbait because it looks like several different types of prey. Profile-wise in dirtier water, it’s very similar to the size of a crawfish. In clearer water, the Strike King KVD 1.5 Hard Knock Squarebill Crankbait is very similar to the profile to a mid-sized baitfish or a two-finger bluegill (stick your index and middle finger out and put them together… big bass love to munch on bluegill that size). I think that’s why the 1.5-sized squarebills have been such big-bass producers over the years.
