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.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
