Rapala's Jointed Minnows are the answer when fish are extra wary and water conditions are difficult. The Jointed Minnow's unique body works to produce a livelier, attention-getting, baitfish-in-distress action that usually fits the bill when all other lures come up short. Well suited for super slow retrieves.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Berklybeliver1 bait requires extreme net man
The action on this bait which i would put into the classification swimbait is one of the most life like i have ever seen and is my personal favorite hard baits. During the spring when the bass are eating bait fish is when it is most efective. In Texas every spring they stock trout in local pounds and evey spring the bass gorge themselves on the trout this bait is a perfect imatation of a trout in it's body shape and the way it moves. I think the best color is rainbow trout. On the smaller baits you can use a spinning rod but i prefer to use a baitcaster with a gear ratio made for crank baits and a fairly strong stiff rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArkansasTraveler Fish it on top
I have found this bait is deadly on bass year round. Best used as a surface bait like a popper or dead pan it or with a super slow retrieve where it snakes across the top of the water. Sometimes hard to keep them running straight but doesn't matter when fishing on top. My best go to bait. Me and my buddies all have at least a handful of these in our tackle. best colors are the black and silver and the black and gold. the mid size lures seem to be the best but the larger one is good when focusing on the big ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fisherman209 Rapala J7
I have used various colors of the J7's. I use this lure mostly for trout fishing. I have used the lure both from shore and as a trolling lure. I haven't had any luck from shore, but it has been a great trolling lure.
A tone of colors to choose from and I have found that firetiger has been the best color in my opinion. The lure give great action because it is jointed. It give an appealing swim bait action.
My latest success story with this lure was when I was trolling for trout and landed a nice 6.67 pound.

in the somewhat stained water that i fish, i like the gold and white or the so called 'baby pike' colours. i like a more natural approach.... i think the 'baby pike' colour, with it's greenish hugh resembles a baby sucker #which pike love# good luck!
This depends on the conditions and body of water that you are fishing. Because these factors can range so widely from location to location, we recommend contacting your local Game and Fish/Conservation agent for information. Typically, they can tell you what the main forage base for the fish in the area is, and will be able to tell you the colors that mimic this best. Also, I would recommend contacting the Bass Pro Shops in your area. Many times, the stores will have good information on what is catching fish during that time and in those conditions.
