Big Bite Baits'™ Four-inch Kriet Kreature


Midwest finesse anglers are incessantly searching for small creature baits to affix to a small mushroom-style jig, and a contributor to the Finesse News Network recently alerted us to the fact that we have failed to publish a word about Big Bite Baits' four-inch Kriet Kreature. This angler thought that this creature might fit the bill for the Midwest finesse anglers who like to wield either a small creature-style or lizard-style bait during the spawning season.

This one is the creation of Jeff Kriet of Ardmore, Oklahoma, who has competed on the Bassmaster circuits since 2001. Kreit says that he has encountered scores of different kinds of water and fishing conditions as he traveled across the nation as a professional angler, and he designed this creature bait and its various color schemes to accommodate most of those conditions.

His bait possesses a smooth-skinned and blunt-bullet-shaped head. Its torso is ringed with scores of rings or ribs. At the point on the torso where the ribs end, a flap-like or claw-like appendage radiates from each side of the torso. These appendages are smooth-skinned and glossy. Spreading out from the end of the Kriet Kreature are two long and narrow curly tails.

It is impregnated with a scent. The folks at Big Bite Baits call it a Biobait. And according to them, it is a procedure that discharges scent at a higher rate than can be achieved with traditional soft-plastic baits. What's more, the Biobait is biodegradable, and it does not shrink nor dry out when it is exposed to the sun and air.

Even though Kreit is known to frequently wield a spinning rod affixed to either a 1/16- or a 1/8-ounce shaky-head jig that is adorned with a Big Bite Baits' Squirrel Tail Worm, neither he nor the staff at Big Bite Baits mention that they would employ the Kriet Kreature on a jig. Instead, they proclaim that it is a versatile bait that "can be flipped, pitched or Carolina rigged." But, of course, when Midwest finesse anglers wielded it, they will use it on a lightweight mushroom-style jig, and perhaps on some outings, they might employ it on a split-shot rig.

It is available in 12 colors: Black Neon, Craw Orange Swirl, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin Red, Huisache, Junebug, Pumpkin Pepper Green, Tilapia, Watermelon, Watermelon Candy, Watermelon Red Flake, and Watermelon Red Magnum.

A package of 10 can be purchase at one online retailer for $1.40. And Big Bite Baits' online store sells a package of 100 for $28.99.
