Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow
Never used Jerk baits before, but decided to get a couple and try on a trip to Toledo Bend. Right out of the box, caught several nice bass with these. I will definitely keep a few in my tackle box from now on. Just need to find the right combination of reel and string as these are very light baits. Tried using a med/hvy rod with 10lb mono, but that didn't get me any distance. Will try again with a spinning reel with 8lb test line and hope that works better. But it sure does get the attention of the fish.

Great for browns
Excellent results trolling 2.5 to 3 mph for german brown trout they absolutely loved it and hit it so hard the belly hook holder almost tore out of the lure on a 6 pound brown.

Let me first say these lures did produce a lot of walleye, pike and smallies on my canada trip. Great action, trolled exactly at the depths specified ran about 7or 8ft for me. The colors are always great rapala always hits the nail on the head.
Now the downfall, i had 2 that after about 5 to 8 fish the bill ripped out. Then i had 2 more lures catch bigger pike in the 35inch range and they ripped the hook and wire attached right out of the balsa. For the price they catch fish and a lot of them but they are very cheaply made, i will probally purchase a couple more hoping they they hold up better but if not these will be the last ones i purchase

Great but there is 1 problem
Lure was putting lots of walleye in the boat. The only problem is the lip isn't attached well to the body. It broke off after the 4th or 5th fish I put in the boat. For the price this lure is not well built. I might buy some more for this year's trip but I am thinking of adding some extra super glue around the lip to help keep it from braking off.
