Designed from the ground up and sharing similar attributes to its smaller siblings, the KRATOS is a formidable floating lure. Built on the promise of strength and versatility, this lure has been designed to do battle with the most ferocious pelagics far and wide. While Kratos was predominantly designed as a casting lure, trolling this lure will get you strikes from Billfish, Tuna and even Wahoo!

TECHNIQUE

CASTING the lure and twitching the rod tip during the retrieve will impart a side to side cadence, keeping the lure in the feeding zone where it is most effective. Sweeping the rod tip in a downward motion will allow the lure to dive down with a swift tail kick. A pause between rod sweeps will make the lure float horizontally for maximum presentation for the target species to notice. The broad silhouette of the lure will attract predators from below, while the impressive side profile will catch the keen eye of any hungry species from a distance.

TROLLING can be achieved by strategically placing the lure past the prop wash while the boat is at IDLE. While a spinning reel may be used while high speed trolling, keep in mind that the drag and line will vibrate exponentially as speed increases.
