At least it was free

Recommended Posts

I received one of those $10 Dick's rewards cash in the mail the other day and went to DSG and picked up a KVD Chartreuse Black Black squarebill today and decided to fish for a little while. Side note - I realized I had zero chartreuse black black baits among my gear which is weird because it's one of THE most popular color combos.

 

Anyway, on the 6th or 7th cast the bait snags. I was cranking really, really slow and there was no bump and then snag, it just snagged about 8 feet out in 4 feet of water. I moved up and down the bank, vibrated the line, and nothing worked. When those things don't work I can usually put on a glove, wrap the line around it and pull and it will come free. Not this time. There was a loud pop and the 30 pound braid broke. Dang.

 

Well, at least the lure was free. And I still don't have a chartreuse black black crankbait in my gear.

Yeah that's lousy, that color and Gizzard Shad are my best 2 in the KVD 1.5

Another reason why I don’t fish crankbait and lipless when Bank fish.

As they say, easy come, easy go. I am sorry that you lost your new crank. ☹️

I’m still questioning your line choice...😁😂

Not everyone brings 10 rods when they fish. I usually just bring one MH baitcaster rod and fish multiple baits. I don't like fluoro or mono on a baitcaster so 20 or 30 pound braid works well for me. It's a lot easier to do that than re-spool every time I change baits :)

Those are the 2 best colors in the series! I would add the chart w/blue back for the deeper baits though.

Get you a big 3-5 oz saltwater sinker & big snap or snap swivel. Place the snap over your line, then hook it to the sinker. Let 'er go! The big weight will usually knock the bait loose on the drop. If not, jig your rod tip a few times & it will usually knock it loose. Or you can tie the weight to a length of small diameter rope to pull the weight back up to drop it again. These are small things you can carry bank fishing.
