Rapala Jigging Rap
Not just for ice-fishing! Secret deep bass weapon!
While this Rapala lure is well-known for its ice-fishing production, it is a very nice alternative technique for hot-weather deep water bass.
In late summer the bass often head for the deep water and suspend off humps, road-beds and other deep structure. Anglers will key on these areas with deep diving crank baits, Carolina rigs...
While these deepwater techniques often produce, sometimes the bass get finicky and need a more 'in your face' sustained presentation.
The Rapala Jigging Rap can be fished right over the side of the boat, targeting fish that are identified on electronics. You can even see the jig on the graph and put it right in front of the fish! It's electronic sight fishing....
The best color in North/Northeast Texas has been the silver/shad pattern.
It is another quality product from Rapala and is a nice alternative when other deep water bass techniques will not produce.
Exposed hooks limit this lure to brush-free, hard structure areas...

This lure is awesome. The motion is incredible. I do very slight ups and downs, just little flicks of the wrists. Every now and then I actually lift up my arm then let it drop, and it does a nose dive down. I have two sizes, one for perch and panfish, and one for trout and bass. I usually tip it with a power egg. I am going to start using night crawlers. This is going to be lethal at my signature panfishing spot, because I know that they are down there, and when they see it, they will go crazy.
