Clankin rap

6 posts in this topic

I was at fleet farm in rochester the other night and noticed that they had the new clankin raps in stock. The yellow perch color is awesome looking. The only size they had was a 7/8 oz. which is a little on the heavy size for everyday use, but none the less I cant wait to add some to my box. At $10 a pop though, I think it will be one at a time.

I also read in Bassmaster magazine that the new DT-20 is a metal lipped crankbait. I thought this was basically a dt-16 with a weight in the bill. Does anyone know for sure? Rapala is also releasing a dt-1 crank which is a type of wake bait from what I've read.

Pretty excited for the new baits. They also have a new Gliding bait which should come in handy for negative mood fish early in the year, as well as a new shallow running x-rap shad. I think the 20 is a little bigger than the 16 and yes, it has a metal bill. DT-1 should be very similar to a 1 minus but run a little shallower. But maybe the paint will stay on, unlike the 1 minus.

The images I saw of the DT-20 were of a DT-16 with some metal weights in the bill. Unless they revamped it since ICAST, which is possible. My tackle box will play host to a bunch of the new DT-1 Fats. I think that is my favorite style of crank bait, the little baby shallow runners. Love the reaction strikes I get from them.

If you saw it, then odds are you are correct. My info was more hearsay...

The DT-20 is a DT-16 with a round metal piece in the lip to achieve the additional depth. It is a great bait, as the results from a couple of recent FLW events will prove. David Fritts and Terry Bolton were both throwing them last week down at Falcon.

The DT-1 Fat and DT-3 Fat are both awesome baits as well. If you like shallow cranking, you'll love these baits.

There will be some shows coming out this winter showcasing these new baits and the footage is incredible.

You may want to consider asking the government for some bail out money so you can afford all these new baits!

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
