The Black Label Balsa - Rockhound - Signature Series Custom Balsa Crankbait was purposely built to do exactly what its name says-- hunt around on hard, rocky type bottoms imitating a crawfish. This design offers a unique blend of hunting action with the ability to continue to dig into the bottom, kicking up enough disturbance to draw the interest of any nearby fish. The Black Label Balsa Rockhound is built with a custom cut lexan bill. The lexan material was chosen over circuit board to provide better durability when fished on hard rocky bottoms. This bait excels on any type of hard bottom from boulder size rock all the way down to pea gravel often found on flats. The Black Label Rock Hound also features an old school design lead tuning button in the lip helping keep a bait with a larger lip such as this one tuned much better. The Black Label Rock Hound is hand crafted, painted, signed and dated with the year it was made by MLF Pro Tour Angler and Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace in his shop in Mississippi. Like all Black Label Balsa Crankbaits, the Rock Hound is a premium Balsa Crankbait because from the initial carving to the final clear coat, the hand-sealed, hand-painted, hand-cleared Black Label Balsa Rock Hound Crankbait is built with a 45-step process that ensures the highest level of quality and performance. The Black Label Balsa Rock Hound crankbait is equipped with two Mustad TG 76 black nickel trebles.
All Black Label Balsa baits are made by hand out of premium balsa wood by Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. Since this bait is custom built and painted by hand there could be minor differences between one bait and another of the same type and color, So please understand that this bait was built and painted by hand, one at a time. So there could be slight color variations from the bait pictured and the bait you receive.
