Kenders K-rip Mini Vibe Bsit
« on: Nov 16, 2019, 10:55 AM »
I just took delivery of 4 of these baits and thought I would give a quick review. I have NOT fished these baits yet.

I bought the 15mm (1/64 oz) size.  From photo you can see how tiny it is. I am near Chicago and our perch and bluegill don't tend to be big. So I thought the smallest size will work better.   I think there are rattles in the bait but I really needed to shake the bait to hear/feel them.  The bait also comes with a single hook to swap with the red treble. All of the baits came with red trebles.

The bait glows and I used a 400 lumens bicycle light, not UV. Glow is ok but it really started fading after appx 30 seconds.

I expect safe ice in about 4 weeks and try them out then.

I tested the glow output with the Venom's UV light.  That light really get's things glowing.  I did not time the glow resilience life.

Only the wonder bread pattern is glow.  I wish they had more glow variety, but this one is good enough to start.

I would not be surprised to see them work. This pond I manage for friend of the family. Has huge gills in it but is overrun with y.o.y. gills. Thousands of them running the shoreline. So I trap them and use to stock other ponds that are new or suffer from not enough fish.

Anyway while waiting for the traps to work. I fish and use some of the gills as bait. Some of you would be amazed at the size of gills that clobber their own kind. Here is what I caught so far in this pond on small bluegills. Channel catfish , largemouth bass, crappie , yellow perch and bluegill. I think other than two huge grass carp are the only species in this pond. The yellow perch I introduced to help control the bluegill population.

So this bait should work well. I base my opinion on other small rip baits performance that I use. The flatt shad, slab raps, rippin raps , z-vibe etc.  Will probably order a few of these myself to test.

Looks as if they should supply a tweezer along with the bait to remove it from the fishes mouth.
