Four time Bassmaster Classic winner, Kevin VanDam, has worked with Strike King on the launch of the Deep Diving KVD Jerkbait.
↑ 'Michigan magician' VanDam has never addressed the issue of a bait that would get down to deeper water - until now.

It’s been rumoured and anticipated for a while, but now Strike King has officially announced the launch of its new Deep Diving KVD Jerkbait.

Kevin VanDam is a tournament fishing legend in his own lifetime and has demonstrated amazing prowess in every bait category. But his affinity to, and ability with, jerkbaits stands out. There’s not much that the four-time Bassmaster Classic winner doesn’t know about jerkbait design.

That much was proved by the KVD 200 and 300 series, which have enjoyed great success since being introduced in 2014. But the Michigan magician has never addressed the issue of a bait that would get down to the deeper water levels….until now.

“The castability, profile and action of existing KVD jerkbaits are spot on. I just really wanted to build one that would get down to the next level,” explains VanDam, a seven-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year.

“We perfected the bill and the weight transfer system to such an extent that this bait will cast great, achieve maximum depth and maintain the perfect action to draw strikes. I can consistently get this bait down to, and get bites at, 11 feet. We have a few baits in our product line that stand out. This is one of them.”

The Deep Diving KVD Jerkbait is 4¾ inches long and is available in 15 colours.
