The Silent Killer 115mm size is a jointed bait that can also be fished like a crankbait. It draws fish that are lurking in cover and that is why it is known as a “silent killer.” It has a realistic shape and looks like a variety of different baitfish.
The body is wrapped in a softshell and inside is a hollow core body made of ABS resin. It has a high pitch and sharp cranking action due to its high buoyancy. It can be cranked like a shallow crankbait or dead-sticked, fished on the surface or below to look like a dying baitfish.

The ABS hollow-core body allows for crisp and sharp gliding action and allows the bait to feature a microspring weight inside of the bait for added appeal. The weight is added outside of the front core and lets you easily tune the lure and adjust the weight by removing the soft shell.
The wide polycarbonate lip is very strong and the coffin shape helps to avoid snags. It will dive like a crankbait and create a powerful vibration
Push the lip to the left or right to make it easier to remove.
* Please note that if you try to pull it out forcibly, you may get injured.
The claws of the lip fit into the groove at the back of the body to secure the lip. Be sure to check that the lip is securely fixed before using.
* Attach the lip so that the flat side is facing forward.
* Please note that repeated removal may scrape the fitting part and cause rattling.
Eye position is designed for cranking.
SPRING WEIGHT MICRO VIBE SYSTEM
The spring weight system is mounted on the head and produces micro-vibrations each time the weight is shaken. This helps to trigger bites with a knocking sound that is created when the lure is retrieved.
The dampening effect provided by the outer soft shell suppresses unnatural noise from the joints during the retrieve, and creates a smooth and natural action.
The hook is a #5 that has a smooth surface for better hook presentation. This hook was carefully selected because of the size of the bass that bite this lure and the tin color helps to camouflage the hook against the belly of the bait. For added attraction, you can replace the stock hooks with feathered trebles to give it a more natural look, especially in current.
FOLLOWING FOR BIG BAIT
The “time lag attack” is a way to get followers to commit. The Silent Killer 115 has a unique glide that will appeal to bass that followed a bigger bait. By throwing the smaller lure after a larger glide, you will get more fish to bite.
In addition to the realistic details and the natural flicker of the feathered hook, dead sticking is a way to fool big bass that do not react to other retrieves.
The bait can be retrieved on the surface and create the appearance of a large baitfish struggling on the top of the water. The wide lip avoids snags from floating debris while also pulling fish from cover.
The subsurface retrieve is similar to a crankbait. It can be highly effective in rough water conditions when it is hard to attract fish to the surface.
Take caution to where you store your baits as they can become deformed or cracked due to the expansion of the air during high temperatures. Keep them out of direct sunlight and in hot places like the inside of vehicles or tackle boxes stored during the warmer months as we are not responsible for damages caused due to storing lures in high temperatures.
- Make it a habit to keep in the original case to protect the bait.
- Do not store with other hard or soft lures as that may cause deformation and melting.
- Dry completely after use. The drain hole is located in the tail section and draining all water is recommended between uses.
Please note the colors may appear slightly different in person than they do on your phone or computer.
