Rapala® Jigging Rap®
Great for Pike and Perch
I've generally used this lure when ice fishing - the 'perch' colour is especially dangerous for pike. Seems they can't cruise anywhere near one of these without striking.
I've also had luck with perch on this rig. They strike fairly well without any baiting... stick a few maggots on it, and it performs quite well. Of course, when you bait it with eyes, you get a fish every drop.
These set very well; I've never lost a fish once on the hook.
Note: You may want to get one of the bigger variants of this lure. I've needed to do that to prevent smaller perch from taking it in. The bigger varieties are only really struck at by 'keepers' - 11" and bigger.

I've used these lures many times, especially great for trout. Doesn't take long to get a strike, better have at least one of these in with your tackle!

So you think these are JUST for ice fishing?? Wrong!!! As a Pro bass tournament fisherman, I would not leave the shore without a good selection of the larger sizes in my arsenel.Deadly on those deep summer smallies and spots!!One of the biggest sleeper jigs out there!!!!With the hook set-up and them being as sharp as possible it is almost impossible to miss a hook-up. Those of you that like to get abig bag of crappie should almost a fish on every drop when in a good school.Pick out your favorite colors and match your lakes baitfish.
