Strike King Strengthens Their Rule (continued)

KVD Popping Perch : From frogs, to rats, to shad, to now perch, the top water hollow bellied bait is a favorite amongst anglers for its weedless design and the ease by which you can tuck it into tight spaces with the right cast or pitch. The new KVD Popping Perch is a 5.5" overall length bait weighing half an ounce with a big fish tail. It has a concave mouth (hence "Popping" in the name) and the traditional dual prong frog hook. The bait is available now in 14 different colors at TackleWarehouse for $8.49.

Special thanks to Cody Meyers for showing us what's new and exciting with Strike King.

Conclusion: As if we didn't already have enough new bait products we wanted to check out more closely before entering the Strike King booth and now that list is getting a bit overwhelming. New frog style baits and squarebills seem to be the theme for this year's bait manufacturers. Throw in a couple of staples like new jigs from Strike King and it looks like it will be a very busy remainder of the year for us here at TackleTour. Special thanks to the always accommodating Cody Meyer for showing us around the new and exciting product at Strike King.
