Kenders T-Rip
« on: December 22, 2020, 08:09:20 PM »
So there's this new Kenders T-Rip micro lipless crank bait lure.  Comes in two sizes, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch in 1/32 oz and 3 /32 oz respectively.  Treble hook size is #16 and #14.  Lure has a rattle chamber too.

I like the profile look of these better than their K-Rips.  The slender profile sort of reminds me of the Rapala Slab Rap.  I will try these as they are but may actually plan to swap out the stock hooks for a larger single hook.  I'm thinking a size 8 to possibly a size 2 hook.

The stock hooks on most baits, especially the finer hooks on most lure, get changed out and upsized with Owner hooks whenever I purchase lures. Good insurance!😎

I use Owner hooks for pan fish as well. Usually red, mosquito in a sz 8. Almost always change out spoons (trebles for a single) with them right away.

So I did get the chance to try out the Kenders T-Rip.  Although I used the larger of the two lure and used the pink tiger pattern.  I had also already changed the hook out to a single sproat hook.  I think it's a size 6.  Although my target species were crappies I did catch a few bluegills in the mix.  I'm thinking that because I had changed to the single hook and was fishing deep water, I was able to hook the bluegills.  The sink rate of the larger of the two was much better than I would've expected. 

While I was able to get fish to chase lure and nibble on it, baiting the hook was required to actually hook up.  The slender lure profile worked great.  I definitely would recommend this lure.
