KVD 1.5 Squarebill

Recommended Posts

I found a kvd 1.5 squarebill, but the hooks are rusted out so I am going to replace them.  But I couldn't figure out what size of hooks they come with, tw doesn't say.  Does any of you guys know what size hooks they come with?

Upgrade those trebles from stock to these ~

Put a # 2 on the front & a # 4 on the back.

You'll be glad you did.

Different sized hooks is not really a "Must" - it's an option.

I do it because I believe the up sized front treble increases my hook up & land ratio - especially on crazy jumping wild smallies. 

The stock size but shorted shank EWG treble on the tail helps reduce hang ups in the cover that I often throw these baits but still maintains a solid hook up & fish landed ratio.

Oh and  . . . .Magic too.

Thanks A-jay and 1201vilblog!  I ordered the #4 and #2 kvd 2 times short one times strong treble hooks (the #4s in the big pack) to replace the hooks on my 1.5 (plus some more colors I bought, the landing ratio wasn't great with stock hooks) and the kvd jerkbait I just ordered.
