Fishing Gear: Rapala Jointed

Rapala Jointed

Description and Application: With a slight exaggeration of the unique Rapala "baitfish in distress" swimming action, the Jointed gets the undivided attention of otherwise disinterested gamefish. This articulated, or "broken-back" bait can be fished top-to-bottom. Swimming action at the slowest of speeds makes this bait the perfect choice after a cold front when fish are traditionally finicky and in a negative feeding mood. Balsa wood construction with VMC black nickel hooks. Each is hand-tuned and tank-tested for perfect swimming action right out of the box.

Staff Perspective:A classic and proven design that still catches fish as effectively as it did from day 1. The jointed action really captures the attention of predator fish and presents a swimming action that they can’t refuse. Plus, it runs true out of the box and at various speeds, either cast or trolled. There are several sizes: 2-, 2 3/4-, 3 1/2-, 4 3/8- and 5 1/4-inch models and 12 awesome colors. Ideal for both large- and smallmouth bass, pike and walleyes—stripers too. This is a bait still worth of your attention—the fish won’t be able to ignore it.

Cost:$10.99
