Strike King Bait Company bills its five-inch KVD Fat Baby Finesse Worm¬†as being bigger than the normal finesse worm. Its torso is rather corpulent, ¬†as is its tail. ¬†The larger diameter of its body allows anglers to employ it on bigger tackle. ¬†In other words, it is a power angler’s finesse bait.
Strike King says its portly tail displaces a significant amount of water, which creates a very tantalizing action.
It was designed to be affixed to a big shaky head jig. ¬†It also can be used on ¬†drop-shot and Jika rigs. ¬†Midwest finesse anglers ¬†can shorten it a tad, and then they can fasten it to their¬†traditional¬†Gopher Tackle Mushroom Head Jig as they have done with Strike King’s ElaZtech seven-inch Finesse Worm and Zero since 2006. ¬†Midwest finesse anglers normally trim about two inches off the head of the seven-inch Finesse Worm, ¬†and they cut the Zero in half, which makes it 2 1/2 inchs long.
This worm isn’t manufactured out of ElaZtech. Instead it is made with a product that Strike King calls Perfect Plactic. ¬†It is infused with salt and¬†Strike King‚Äôs coffee scent.
It is created in the following colors:¬†Candy Craw,¬†Dirt,¬†Double Header,¬†Green Pump Purple/Gold,¬†Green Pump Sapphire,¬†Green Pumpkin,¬†Honey Candy,¬†Honey Candy,¬†Watermelon, and¬†Watermelon Red Flake.
A package of 12 can be purchased for $4.95
