River2Sea Kong 5inch Spy Shots

Due out in April is the 5 inch version of the popular River2Sea Kong. I got my hands on this bait for you guys a month before its due on store shelves. For those who are unable to throw the 9″ or 6 5/8″ versions, this one may be right up you alley.

For those who are new to the Kong series, this version of the jointed swimbait will be nothing new. It’s still a hard bodied swimbait, with the same paint schemes as its bigger brothers (9″ and 6 5/8″ to be exact). The fins on this bait are made of a bendable hard plastic, and the three piece body is held together by the pin and tenon hinge system.

The stock hooks areĀ  Daiichi (BN) X Strong. No need to change these out, unless you have something against beastly sharp hooks. The weight of this 5″ swimbait is 1 3/8oz, or 39 grams, so its light enough to throw on a smaller swimbait rod.

When not working his heart out on websites, e-commerce, and programming, Branson like to enjoy time on the lake. His best times are spent with friends trophy bass hunting in Southern California.
