Explosive strike

Recommended Posts

I was loaned an Imakatsu Aventa Crawler to try this past weekend and I really gave it a serious try. The bait is huge, 4.5" long and 1.3oz. The closest thing to it is a Pompadour, which is "only", 3" and 3/4oz. I knew there was a shallow spot with several large boulders that the bass ambush shad as they move in and out of the creek. Maybe this fish had missed it's last meal and decided it was going to make sure the next thing that swam by didn't get away, maybe it was just having a bad day, either way it was an awesome strike.

Great first fish with a new bait!  What is that thing?

Imakatsu Aventa Crawler, basically a huge, expensive Pompadour.

It's geared towards musky I believe.

I don't think that's going to much of a deterrent to everythingthat swims - including most recently Musky.

Nice strike from a Chunk.

Exactly why I mentioned that. If I had a spare, I'd like to send him a camera to try to catch a topwater strike from them on this bait on camera.
