Finesse News Network’s Gear Guide: Strike King Bait Company’s KVD Fat Baby Finesse Worm

by Ned Kehde   |  September 23rd, 2012 0

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.

This is one of Kevin Van Dam's favorite Fat Baby Finesse Worms. It is a green-pumpkin with purple and gold flakes. Van Dam affixed this Fat Baby Finesse Worm to an 1/8-ounce Strike King Bait Company's Football Jig, which he employs with a shaky-head retrieve.

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


Strike King’s Dream Shot was introduced at the 2012 ICAST show. We wrote a blog about it in October of 2011. To read about it, please see our In-Fisherman blog at ¬†
