Kevin VanDam used the Strike King KVD HC Crankbait in Black Back Chartruese en route to winning the 2011 Bassmaster Classic on the Louisiana Delta. It was KVD's fourth Classic title, tying him with legendary professional angler Rick Clunn for the most ever Classic titles. He used both the 1.5 and the 2.5, but it was the Strike King KVD HC Crankbait 1.5 in Black Back Chartruese that was the deal, and the bait he credits with catching the majority of his big fish.
Legendary professional bass angler, Kevin VanDam, spent a considerable amount of time designing and fine tuning the Strike King KVD HC Square Bill Silent Crankbait. He wanted to ensure that it had the right erratic action with the wandering and searching motions that he needed to entice those shallow bass. The square bill design also helps it generate lively deflections off cover and reach its desired depth quickly. Available in several proven colors, the Strike King KVD HC Square Bill Silent Crankbait delivers proven performance, and is also silent (no rattles) for those times when the fish are heavily pressured or just plain spooky.
KVD recently used the Strike King KVD HC Square Bill Silent Crankbait en route to claiming his 3rd consecutive Angler of the Year title (7th overall) by winning the 2nd leg of the 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series Postseason at the Alabama River. He ended up catching the majority of his fish throughout the two-day event on the Strike King KVD HC Square Bill Silent Crankbait in the Sexy Shad pattern.
