Default Strike King KVD Red Eye Sexy Shad

I have heard alot abbout the new Strike King Red Eye Sexy Shad. I am thinking about trying some in the rattle trap style. Any comments or suggestion about this lure. I fish in the piedmont part of Va. and North Carolina on several types of lakes. Large and small, various water clarity. A couple of the lakes are power plant lakes that have hot holes. I appreciate any suggestions in color, how to fish, etc.

I recommend you buy a variety of different rattlebaits if you don't have several already because different baits will vibrate and rattle differently. Fish will at times prefer the action and noise of one type over others. For colors I think chrome, red/crawfish, chart., and shad/white are the basics.

Personally I would fish it like any rattletrap type lure...toss it out, try to tick the tops of the weeds on your way back. You can try varying retrieve speeds, but for the most part, a steady retrieve, once you have counted it down to the depth you want to be at, and add a slight "rip" if you feel it ticking the tops of weeds, is all I usually have to do.
It's hard to fish these incorrectly in my opinion, as long as you get them down to the depth you want to be at.

what sets these apart from the rest is the fall . use them like any other rattletrap but when you rip it , or hit something, LET IT FALL! these shimmy on the fall, not unlike a senko actually. Thats supposed to be the trick. They work pretty well. I have and like , sexy shad (cloudy), chrome /blue (sunny) , and mohara (clear) the chrome sexy shad is supposed to be great as well. I took a few checks with them this year, they stay in the box next to my spro's and excalibers.

I think they are a good lipless crankbait. I wished that they put a more quality hook on them. I have a few and have done well with them. I still think the xcalibur is the best lipless on the market.
