Summertime means deep water ledge fishing in many reservoirs across the county. Lake Guntersville resident Matt Lee favors a big crankbait when bass start showing up on ledges. As he explains, "big bass key on plus-sized forage like gizzard shad, so I want to match my lure profile to what the bass are feeding on." The Strike King 10XD has built a reputation as an exceptional fish catcher in deep water. KVD's 2016 Elite Series win at Toledo Bend is good testament. It's big, dives deep, rattles hard, and wobbles wide - all characteristics that are known to trigger aggressive reaction strikes from the largest bass in a system.
