Bass Kandy Delights is a small family owned business offering BKD lures, jig heads, and lightweight hooks. BKDs are a very durable soft plastic lure, These 6 and 10 inch lures are known for their terrific tail action that trigger fish to bite. They stay on the hook 2 to 3 times better than many of our competitors. Multiple fish are often caught using the same lure. Many fish!
BKDs can be rigged and fished in many ways. Light tackle jigging proves to be one of the most successful techniques. The thrill of having a fishing rod in your hands and catching large trophy stripers is hard to beat! Our baits have also been used successfully with trolling umbrellas and other trolling tackle. It's been said that more "personal bests" have been caught on BKD's by light tackle fisherman on the Chesapeake Bay than any other single artificial bait. Catching Stripped Bass is only the beginning. Our customers have sent pictures of different kinds of fish caught using BKD's from many destinations around the world.
BKDs were developed in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay region around 2001 by Capt. Steve Seigel, a charter captain on the Chesapeake Bay. Capt. Steve wanted an artificial bait that was reasonable in price, durable and very effective to target catching Maryland's and Virginia's famous Rockfish using light tackle jigging techniques. The color selection, shape, open hook slot and durable material are all design features that make this an optimal lure for targeting trophy fish.
In January of 2015 we became the new owners of Bass Kandy Delights. We are excited about the future prospects of introducing this terrific fishing lure to other parts of the country. Our personal first hand experience provides us with the passion and enthusiasm to succeed. Thanks to all of you who continue to use our products and support our business. Bill and Mary Montgomery
