Tod Castledine found an old bait that he made 1 cast with, then cut it off and forgot about it. Later, he smoked them with it, even though it was an "awful color". Now that bait is available from Strike King. It looks like a crankbait, and it's technically a crankbait, but Todd explains why it's unique and so much more than a crankbait. Learn about these baits, what makes them special, and why no one could get one earlier in the year.
