Jigging Rapallas

Recommended Posts

Had a buddy out recently that did very well on walleyes using a jigging rap. I have never tried that. Looked at a few videos online and it looks like a good option for late summer through fall. Anybody else use or tried them ?

A good option when vertical jigging. I'll have one on one rod and a jig on another.( we can use two rods  in Ia.) Also a great lure for newbies. Just get them sweeping it up and down touching the bottom once in a while. The fish will just be on! Don't have to explain what a bite feels like.

theres only one issue they don't tell you about with these.  unless you are fishing sand or mud, be prepared to lose A LOT of them.  

we watched all these pros clobber walleyes with these baits and i went out and bought about 10 of various colors and sizes.  they work really well but what they don't tell you is some of those guys go through 50-100 of them a day.   we lost all of ours fishing the rocks.  it certainly worked better than jigs or trolling over the top of them did but we were quickly frustrated after a handful of hours and had worked our way through them all almost.  if you didn't let them hit the bottom you didn't get bit . there were times where the fish ate them and unsnagged them they are such good baits.

    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
    • Be careful, these are legal for stores to sell but very dangerous to use.  They are non-compliant with building codes.  
    • Yup it will hinge up.
    • I'm just going to use a vent free wall mount heater.  Maybe in the future I will put in a nice forced air one but the budget doesn't allow for it right now.
    • dave, can you explain the butter bath process????????? sounds artery clogging to me  but dang tasty.
    • Bet that got the blood pumping. Had to be quite the whollup.  
    • Nice bird. Congrats.  
    • Butter bath chicken thighs on my overpriced pellet grill last night.  
    • Made it out to Chamberlain tonight after work and got a nice 19” and a 20”. Caught a couple others under 15” in just a couple hours of fishing. After a terrible ice season felt really good to wet a line in open water.   Lots of people out  and shore lines were crowded, can’t imagine how bad the weekends are.   gonna hit it hard from the boat tomorrow, so more to come.
